This summer, Heathrow Airport has unveiled its first ever free food guide, giving passengers an overview of the food and drink on offer at one of the world’s busiest airports. Compiled and written by television’s Masterchef judges, John Torode and Gregg Wallace were charged with the task of eating and drinking their way around the airport’s 73 restaurants and bars. They then spent six months in discussions with Heathrow’s food and beverage team to introduce healthier options for travellers.

The new Heathrow food guide, called ‘Food on the Fly’, provides passengers with healthy eating tips for people on the go and a review of the varied food establishments at each airport terminal. During this blog, Happydays Parking will be taking a closer look:
