If you are using T1 for a UK domestic, there is a large open BA lounge which faces on to the runway. Not sure about other places.

There's a public seating area (I think it's near gate 10) that looks out over 09R/27L. You can also see stuff landing/taking off from 09L/27R. It's not great, but it will do. The BA lounge in T4 faces away from the runways  Sad

T4 has a good view of 09R/27L. I was there last year and it was fun to see heavies rotate in front of you (09R takeoff situation). Not much good for photos but still nice to see though.
