Try the observation desk at the South Terminal (entrance fee GBP 1.50) or the Parking lot next to the runway and South terminal.

Jamie, why got to LGW when you have LHR on your doorstep  Big grin
Or get yourself up to NCL, much better than LGW  Laugh out loud
Hehe
Enjoy yourself anyway and get some good pics  Smile

LGW, at least at NCL you can view exciting take-offs from a/c such as a 747, wondering whether they will get off the runway in time  Big thumbs up
