Tips and comments
Going to England can be very fun but there is a huge chance for new passengers to get lost, after all the sheer size of the airport is enough to let anyone, even some passengers who have been there before a few times, to get lost. But Heathrow employs a staff just as big as its size and so if you do get lost there will be plenty of people there to guide you. The airport personnel are very experienced and trained plus there are numerous signs all around the airport that will guide you to wherever you need to go and if you left your car at the airport, make sure you remember exactly where you parked as even though it will be written on the ticket you get when you park, the sheer size of the parking lot will definitely have you looking.
