  2. Hi Laura, we’re so sorry you’ve missed Mr. Adventure and Little Miss Explorer this time round, but they’re off on their travels Friday too. We hope you’ll be able to meet them next time, but for now we can at least turn your family into Mr. Men characters: https://www.heathrowfamilyportrait.com/. Enjoy your journey on Friday.
