There are six lounges within the terminal: The Concorde Room, The First class lounge, three Club Lounges and an Arrivals Lounge.
These have been built at cost of £60 million and are the epitome of elegance and luxury.
Collectively the lounges, known as ‘Galleries’, are capable of hosting up to 2,500 people.

A restaurant is available for FIRST customers, which will offer a selection of freshly prepared refreshments and meals throughout the day.
A dedicated concierge desk enables customers to manage various aspects of their lives from booking theatre tickets and taxis to changing flight details.
