Other than that Heathrow has some neat little shops if you are flying on British Airways they will feed you well and its alot better than the other airlines.I love British Airways even though I have only flown once with them.

Found it here is a site that shows what Heathrow has to offer.Each terminal has a list of places to eat.
http://www.airwise.com/airports/europe/LHR/

Plus you can get a map of the airport so you can find your way around.

I definetely agree with Ishbel... hanging around in an airport for 10 hours is nothing but a torture, there is a decent tube connection to the west end and believe me, the last thing you would want to do in an airport is to eat and drink!! (everywhere you go, it's a highway robbery and this is not just about Heathrow!!)
A few hours (at the very least) of hanging out in, say, Kensinton High Street is much better than sitting around in a terminal, there will be much more attractive options if you feel peckish, too!!

Last time we went to Greece we also had a 10 hour layover in London.

Go to town!! There's lots of time to see the sights and eat some good food too.

Have fun!

I would echo what Ishbel says...leave the airport and go into London proper. There is a tube (metro) from Heathrow...its the piccadily line....it will bring you straight into the very centre of London. You could look up somewhere you would actually choose to eat and allow an hour to get back and you would be fine. When we meet people or fly I take a picnic to Heathrow! Failing that a Pret a Manger sandwhich is your best bet!

Wow. Somehow I missed all the replies. I just saw the one.

I can't leave the airport. I was going to and visit my cousin, but it turns out she's on her holiday right now, and my other family is in Germany for the World Cup.

I am actually in Terminal 4. And I am on British Airways and BA coshares, but I can't wait 12 hours between meals. I don't remember seeing Pret a Manger on any of the lists I've looked at or the map I printed.

I am really not looking foward to tomorrow though now that I know its unpleasant. I have also practically memorized the map of Terminal 4 too.
I chose Heathrow despite the longer layover because I despise going through CDG in Paris and was hoping it would be better.

Auntdot, I am taking books. And if I run out, I noticed there are two or three bookstores in Terminal 4. I just have to avoid the chocolate shop probably.

I agree with the previous poster, hop the Heathrow Express into London! What an opportunity, and a great way to pass 10 hours!

I've eaten in the international terminal a couple of times, but usually try to avoid it!

Get into london, find yourself something there, nothing else to it. Depends on what time you get there i suppose. If you get to Heathrow at 11p.m. then you're in trouble, but if its in the day, get into town.
