This might be a topic already asked but since i am going to LHR, I was wondering what is a good place to spot?
Thanks in advance.

I went spotting at LHR a few weeks back. Try the spectators gallery on top of terminal 2. You get good views of take offs and landing on 27R i think.

In Arsene we trust!!

On top of the Queen's Building is a nice place to shoot photos.

I exited the blue tube line one station before the LHR tube stations called: Hatton Cross.
From there you got walk 2 minutes along the main road until you reach a car park. If 27L is used for landings you got the jets flying right over ur head.
Also the spotters meet there in the summer on the opposite site of the road on a grass field.
