Time to spare at Heathrow? Relax and enjoy!

Whether you're looking for a relaxing massage treatment, want to go to an art gallery or a couple of hours in a YOTEL pod, it's all here at Heathrow.

T5 Gallery - Terminal 5

Described as an oasis of calm in the Visitors Book, the award winning T5 Gallery offers a cultural artistic experience, providing wonderful artwork as well as offering a contemplative space to either browse or purchase. With artwork from international young emerging artists adorning the walls and monumental sculpture at the core of the space, the T5 Gallery provides artistic inspiration.

The T5 Gallery is one of the first in an international airport and fits in perfectly as art has the ability to transcend across all  languages and cultures. If you do purchase any of the pieces, there are a variety of shipping and delivery options. In addition, the gallery offers a commission service, so whether corporate or personal the T5 Gallery can accommodate all your artistic needs. 

Open everyday from 08:00 to 20:00, we hope you find the exhibition as captivating as it is unexpected.
