I know that this observation deck has been closed for some time now due to security reasons, but there is also a really great pilot shop/gift shop there as well. I am leaving London on Thursday and wanted to know if this gift shop still exists and if so, is it in the same place and also what are the business hours?

Can anyone help me?

Much appreciated.

Hi,

Yes the deck is still closed, and will most probably stay closed due to 'securtiy risks'  Insane

The shop is closed as it was actually situated onto of the viewing area. I think, although forgive me if im wrong, the owner has a secnod shop in one of the hotels. Im not sure which one it is, but its not the Renaissance.

Cheers

if you are looking for aircraft models you will find that the shop is located in the sheraton skyline hotel on the Bath road A4..

The shop on the observation deck has another branch in the heathrow visitors centre, its run by the same people that run the one on top of terminal 2.

Different shop/owners. The observation deck shop is, or rather was, owned by the people with the shop in the visitors center on the perimeter road (north).

Where is the Heathrow Visitor's Centre located? Is it in one of the terminals?

Thanks to everyone for their responses to my inquiry.

Visitors centre is located next door to the Renaissance hotel. Also in the hotel's lobby there is a gift shop which sells models.

Indeed the gift shop in the Visitors' Centre is a branch of Mach III - they also have a branch in Hillingdon, northwest London and well away from the airport. To get to the Visitors' Centre, take one of the free buses from any of the terminals headed to the north of the airport and ask the driver for the stop. Once there you will see the Sheraton Skyline hotel nearby where the rival model shop - which has a truly massive range of models - is located.

The spectators' gallery is closed - possibly forever as even the signs leading to it are blocked out now.
