Describe Online


This walkway links the Underground station with Terminals 1, 2 and 3.

Terminal 1 lies north of the station, whilst Terminal 3 is to the southwest. Terminal 2 wasn't open at the time of our survey, but we presume this is to the east, just south of the gateline for the lifts.

This is a long passage, with travellators leading towards terminals 1 and 3. the left-hand travellator is normally the one you need, there's a walkway between these. Each terminal can be reached via lifts to all levels. Note that the Heathrow Terminals 1, 2 and 3 Mainline Station lies west of the Underground station and is also reached via lifts from within the terminals.

Although there is escalator access between the station and terminals, we recommend you use the lifts as these offer simpler routes, particularly from the higher levels.
