In this trip report, I review the Best Airport Lounges in London Heathrow Terminal 5. Terminal 5 is exclusive to British Airways. I have flown with British Airways many times and I have also reviewed each British Airways lounge at Terminal 5 in detail.
Which lounge is best? Well, it has to be the Concorde Room at Heathrow which offers iconic styling and a much more serene environment than the busy Galleries Lounges. The prize for the best Airport Lounges in the world does, however, probably go to Qatar Airways for it’s jaw-dropping Al Safwa First Class Lounge in Doha’s new Hamad International Airport.
You will find all my London Heathrow Airport lounge reviews below starting with those in Heathrow Terminal 5 with the Concorde Room & First Lounge (pictured above) for First passengers and the Galleries Lounges for those travelling in Club. I have outlined the lunch separately. I have also included the Aspire lounge which is the paid or Priority Pass lounge in Terminal 5 that you can use out of this terminal in you are traveling in Premium Economy or Economy.
If you need an airport hotel, the Sofitel London Heathrow connects directly to Terminal 5.
