Fun for families, all summer long

Boy with coloured model plane

Family holidays are meant to be fun – and we think that should start the moment you set off. At Heathrow we’re running a whole summer of fun for our youngest travellers, with craft workshops and visits by Mr. Men characters to keep kids entertained.

Craft workshops

Child with craft helperOodles of good, messy fun for your little ones. We’re putting on ten half-day craft workshops in the departure lounges between July and September. Kids are welcome to drop in, pull up a child-sized chair and join in with activities such as T-shirt colouring.

Our craft helpers are there to help them get creative. Best of all, the sessions are completely free.
