  1. I was excited to read about all the activities for kids as I’m travelling on my own with two 6 year olds on Friday but everything finishes at 1, 2 or 4 p.m. Our flight leaves Terminal 5 after 8 pm so we will not be at Heathrow before 5. After travelling all the way from South Devon, it’s quite disappointing to learn that there is nothing going on for those with kids on evening flights… 🙁

    1. Hi Hanna – thanks for getting in touch.

      We’re sorry to hear you’ll miss out on some of the events, but there’s still the Lego activity station to enjoy (until 9pm). We also have a children’s play area in the departure lounge, and there are colouring sheets and stickers available at play areas and information desks. We hope that’s some help to your 6-year-olds, and wish you a pleasant journey on Friday!
