Stay at a Heathrow holiday cottage and explore all London has to offer
While the airport may be the first thing most people think of at the mention of Heathrow, there are many other points of interest in the area. The wide availability of accommodation around Heathrow makes it a great alternative for visitors to London who prefer to escape the bustle of the city centre. With the Heathrow Express Train, you can be at Paddington Station in just 15 minutes, or you can take the Picadilly Underground line and be in the city in under an hour.
Theme park fun
Heathrow is just a short distance from two of the UK's most popular theme parks, Legoland and Thorpe Park. Windsor's Legoland is aimed at younger children, with amazing exhibits made of Lego that change throughout the year, and mild-mannered fairground rides. Thorpe Park, on the other hand, will keep any thrill-seeking teenager happy. Highlights include Saw – The Ride, a horror-themed roller coaster, and Stealth, which reaches heights of 205 metres and speeds of up to 130km per hour! Younger children will also be entertained, as there are slower and less scary rides as well.
Explore Heathrow and its surroundings
Why bother travelling into central London, though, when there are so many attractions around Heathrow? Sports fans will want to venture to nearby Twickenham, the home of English rugby. Daily stadium tours offer a glimpse behind the scenes, taking you into the Royal Box and the dressing rooms, as well as down to the side of the pitch. Spaces on each tour are limited, so booking in advance is recommended.
If you're more interested in the history and pomp of the British royal family, then a visit to Windsor Castle is a must. Highlights include 14th-century St George's Chapel; the largest dollhouse in the world, which was built for Queen Mary in 1924; and the Round Tower, which was re-opened to the public in 2011. Climb the 200 steps to the top of the tower for fantastic views of the surrounding scenery.
Flowers and palaces
Hampton Court Palace, a few miles south of Heathrow in Richmond-upon-Thames, is another royal castle worth a visit. The palace hosts the annual Hampton Court Flower Show every July. First held in 1990, it has gone on to become the largest flower show in the world, featuring show gardens, floral displays, and talks by leading gardeners on how to get the most from your garden. Prizes are awarded for the best gardens and displays.
You could also see the Royal Windsor Horse Show, held each May. One of the Queen's favourite events, it includes showjumping and dressage competitions over five days on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
