Heathrow is home to one of the world's major international transport hubs, London Heathrow Airport. It is situated in Hounslow in West London. Heathrow holidays might not be at the top of everyone's list, but staying there is a ticket to the rest of the world and is also conveniently located near to the city of London itself. Whether it is sunny destinations, city trips or holidays with kids that travellers are looking for, thousands of cities and resorts are just one flight away from Heathrow Airport; making it one of the busiest airports in the world.
As one of the world's major cities and the capital of England, London is worth visiting all year round, with events taking place nearly every day and attractions like museums, art galleries and hotspots to visit. Summer, however, is the most pleasant time, when outdoor parks and strolls along the River Thames are most enjoyable. Heathrow is around twenty miles west of London's city centre and the journey between the two takes approximately thirty minutes to an hour if travelling via the London underground or coach. The timezone in Heathrow is GMT.
If visitors have time to spare on a Heathrow holiday before or after a flight, there is a large shopping centre in nearby Kingston, as well as a bowling alley in Hounslow. Also if time allows, it's possible to take a thirty minutes bus ride to Hampton Court or Windsor Castle and view these two historic tourist attractions firsthand. Other than that, whilst in Heathrow Airport, visitors can enjoy a range of shopping outlets offering designer and duty-free products as well as various restaurants and pubs.
