From passports and playlists to wardrobe essentials, we all have our checklist of travel must-haves. What may not be on that list – but most definitely should be – is feeling rejuvenated and flight ready. Whether you have a full day, an overnight stop or a few hours to spare, here’s how to enjoy your pre and post-flight experience with top tips from the team at Hilton London Heathrow Airport.

Recharge in style and comfort

Take the lull of long layovers between flights with Executive Refresh Pass. Created by the expert concierge team, it has been designed to help you recharge your batteries in style and comfort. The pass includes access to the swimming pool, the health club facilities and use of the executive lounge with complimentary canapés and drinks. It’s a great alternative to the time often spent sitting on uncomfortably in at the airport.

Exploring the great outdoors

Taking exercise, particularly before a long haul trip, helps the body’s circulation and aids restful sleep. The scenic lawns and lake areas surrounding Hilton London Heathrow Airport create a great opportunity for guests to enjoy a variety of running routes around Bedfont Lake Country ranging from 0.6 miles for beginners to 1.6 miles for more seasoned runners. And if you don’t fancy running, you can still enjoy the benefits of the great outdoors with a gentle stroll, which all goes towards energising and de-stressing before you board or after touch-down.

To the beach before you board

Research shows that a trip to the beach has been proven to reduce stress levels and the pop-up summer beach terrace at Hilton London Heathrow Airport is the perfect spot to relax before or after a flight. Serving the finest craft wines and beers and a great menu of summer-inspired food and drink, a visit to the beach terrace feels like a mini vacay in itself.

More room to relax with Hilton

Why check-in for the day with a day-use room? With a choice of rooms to choose from, it’s ideal to get some shut-eye between connecting flights. And of course, booking an overnight stay at Hilton Hotels in Heathrow can make the start or end to your journey much easier.  With at Hilton London Heathrow Airport being located less than 5 minutes’ away from Terminal 4, the chance to rest and recoup begins right at their door. Even with the earliest of starts, you can enjoy those precious extra minutes in bed.
