If you’ve got a bit of time to take it easy before your flight, grab a snack from the Food Village or head for the family-friendly Elvis Bar.
See if you can spot the plaque there which commemorates what was, as legend has it, the only time Elvis ever set foot on British soil when the army transport plane taking him and other troops home from Germany stopped en route to refuel in 1960. You get two hours’ free wi-fi while you’re in the airport, and for a bit of retail therapy, there’s a fully stocked Nuance Duty Free shop. Passengers travelling with kids should make a beeline for the free Play Zone next to the Food Village.
