    Anyone work at (or near) Heathrow T5? Or know it well?!

    Long shot ask – but does anyone know if there's anywhere I can watch the England game at LHR T5 on Thursday night?

    This is ARRIVALS side, unfortunately not in departures (where I'm sure there'll be bars with TVs etc).

    I'm on a flight that lands at T5 at 6pm on Thursday, so by the time I'm through immigration etc it'll be pretty much bang-on kick-off time. I'd happily watch the game there before continuing my onward journey, but as far as I can remember all there is arrivals-side is the likes of Costa Coffee etc.

      Must be a WiFi you can link up with ? Then watch it on iPlayer or ITV Hub, whoevers covering it.

      I flew into Heathrow the day of the 2002 England v Argentina game. I just found the taxi rank and asked the driver to take me to the nearest pub. Can't remember where it was but I did get there a few minutes before England's penalty.

      Airport wifi is usually on a par with dial-up connection speed though, so it'd be a gamble.
      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      Google is your friend!

      The George (land side) looks to even have Sky, according to one of the photos on Googlemaps, so am pretty sure it will have footie on terrestrial.

      I think there is a pub before the security checks in Departures. You would just need to take lift up to Departures after you have cleared passport control and customs.

      Great thanks – that sounds like the answer! Much appreciated.

      I had considered wifi on a laptop as a last resort, as it's likely to be ropey at best (and seriously lacking in atmosphere!).

      Alternatively there is the Sofitel Hotel at T5 connected via a walkway. I am sure the bar there will have it on.

      Fairly sure that the Crown Rivers pub after security (it is a Spoons) will show it on the TVs in there. They have shown Wimbledon before as well as having Johnny English on permanent loop.
