London Heathrow Airport (LHR)
Although there are five primary airports serving London, Heathrow is the largest of these. This airport hasn’t seen much of a change to its ranking as it was in 8th position last year and is now in 9th overall. It is the third busiest airport in the world and is constantly being renovated and developed. For example, one of its major renovations was replacing the entire Terminal 2 building. However, it was Terminal 5 that Skytrax named as the best airport terminal in the world and this structure also has the accolade of being the largest free-standing building in the UK. This airport is a shopper’s delight as Terminal 5 has personal shoppers to help you find everything you need. The food in the airport is outstanding as many of the 105 restaurants are headed up by celebrity chefs. For example, there is Heston Blumenthal’s The Perfectionists’ Café and Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food.
