No question about it - the observation deck by the Queens Building.

Its a little hard to find, but if you come out the door by T2 arrivals and take an immediate right you will see a door leading to stairs going up and a small sign above it saying "Observation Deck" or something similar.

A great place to spend a few hours at LHR.

on top of the Queens Building,Teminal 3 there is a sign saying spectator`s terrace or something. great spotting point, you can see both runways. there`s also an aviation shop with videos, models and books etc.
