A completely subjective list because, needless to say, one persons posh is another person’s not-so-posh.
But there’s no denying that the Heathrow retail team has been successful in attracting some big, international brands to its terminals and it regularly gets anointed as the world’s best airport for shopping.
The prospect of well-heeled travellers with time on their hands and a need to often buy last minute gifts is enough to get retailers setting up shop – anyhow here’s our top five.
Prada – Terminal 5
A by-word for style. This is one of Heathrow’s largest stores at 210 sq m. Dedicated to women’s bags, accessories and footwear but with plenty for men with a selection of leather goods, footwear and ready-to-wear.
Armani – Terminal 5
This is set within the newly opened Harrods store and offers Armani’s distinctive jackets, shirts and knitwear.
Dior – Terminal 5
A stylishly understated space but oozing luxury, the house of Christian Dior is brought to life in a chic cohesion of modern and 18th century designs. Handbags to fine jewellery and much in between.
Cartier – Terminal 3
Stylish understated store offering innovative jewellery, watches plus various leather goods, pens and clocks.
Burberry – Terminal 2
A quintessentially British brand noted for its distinctive outerwear. Hugely popular with Far East travellers.
