Heathrow with kids

Have a hoppy time at Heathrow this Easter

Peter-Rabbit heathrow

We all love going on holiday, it’s one of the most exciting things you can do with your little ones. If only getting there wasn’t such a headache – airports and tots who have the attention span of a gnat are not the greatest mix and can easily frazzle the nerves of the most laid back mum. So how happy are we to hear about Heathrow’s new plans to make things easier for families (yay!).

This Easter they’ve teamed up with everyone’s favourite mischievous bunny, Peter Rabbit, to provide some fun for little ones while you wait to board your plane – meet Peter himself, listen to stories, get involved in art and craft sessions or pick up an activity booklets. There’s even the chance for you to win some Beatrix Potter-inspired prizes (including a luxury family holiday to the Lake District).

And if you’re not planning to travel just yet, no matter Susan Goldsmith, operations director at Heathrow (but more importantly also a mum of two) has also given us some general handy hints on travelling with tots.

  1. Bring some small games to keep your little ones occupied. And make use of the play areas (burning off a bit of energy before you board could make for a calmer flight).
  2. Sticking to your regular mealtimes can mean less disruption for tots. Take advantage of the fact that most airport restaurants let kids eat free and are equipped with high chairs and activity packs.
  3. Make security less stressful by looking for the family lanes – they’re wider than most and boast signs at eye height for your little ones.
  4. Most airports also have special volunteers on hand to help families – let them sort out your larger items – buggies, changing bags etc.


Happy holidays!
