Heathrow - No official viewing areas, the gallery on terminal 2 was closed a long time ago. But good places to take pictures are Myrtle Avenue/Hatton Cross and the road crossing near the BA engineering base on the east side.
The Gatwick viewing area is also closed which is a shame, i'm not familiar with LGW so i cannot recomment any places.

Heathrow provides some good spotting opportunities for the 27s from the perimeter road, on the north east side you can get views of 27R line ups/approaches/touch downs, then heading down the east side through the maintenance area you will reach Hatton Cross. A little further down is Myrtle Avenue, a great location for 27L approaches. It would be great if there was a new T5 viewing area but considering the current spectator's terrace is closed for security reasons I doubt a new viewing area will be top priority for BAA!
Having said that, I read that BAA are committed to providing a viewing area at STN and currently analysing possibilities. But I'll believe it when I see it...
Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned forever skyward
