London Heathrow Airport

If you find yourself with restless kids and a layover in Heathrow Airport this summer, Jetterz Kids Club Lounge in Terminal 3 just might be worth its weight in gold. One of several kid-friendly lounges in Heathrow (there are others in both Terminal 1 and 2), Jetterz is located airside, in the transfers check-in area and is open daily. It’s not free, but is fully supervised, meaning that you can drop off kids and go eat or shop if so inclined. Inside, you’ll find a TV, DVD player, reading material, computers and other games, as well as toys.

(Airlines using Terminal 3 for their departures include Air Canada and American Airlines.)

Cost: £15 per child for two hours worth of play; £10 per hour thereafter.

Hours: 8 am to 7 pm

Food Services: Landside includes fast food such as a Burger King, a Granary, and a Sbarro. Airside includes a bistro and a table service restaurant.

Website: You can book in advance at 020-8897 9183 or 07767 368600 or ops@diamond-air. For a Heathrow map, check here. For more kid-friendly airport locations throughout the U.K., see Kids and Airports: A Survival Guide in the Independent.
