Terminal Information – Departing
This is a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
Gatwick: easyJet depart from the North Terminal. The train station is in the South Terminal, so if you're arriving by Gatwick Express you will need to take the free inter-terminal shuttle to reach the correct security area and departure lounge. The North Terminal has a good range of shops and restaurants, including three Jamie Oliver outposts.
Heathrow: British Airways usually fly from Terminal 5. This terminal has its own dedicated stop on the tube and Heathrow Express so double-check that you're getting off at the correct stop and double-check your boarding pass too. Terminal 5 is renowned for its luxury shopping and dining options. Gordon Ramsay has a restaurant in the terminal, Plane Food, and there are plenty of designer stores such as Alexander McQueen and Burberry where you can enjoy a tax-free discount.
Stansted: There is only one terminal at this airport. The gates are quite far from the main shopping and dining area, so give yourself plenty of time once your flight is announced. There's a champagne bar if you want to kick off your trip to Krakow in style, and a James Martin restaurant if you want to indulge in some good British fare. Alternatively, you can enjoy a burger in Giraffe or some tasty sushi from Itsu.
