Left Luggage at Heathrow Airport

If you want to store your bags at Heathrow airport, there are left luggage offices in the arrivals halls in all airport terminals.

To leave your luggage for a week or longer, it’s cheaper to use one of the self-storage companies just outside the airport. They’re easy to get to by public transport. And even if you take a more expensive taxi, especially if you have more than one bag, the overall cost is still cheaper than leaving your bags at the airport.

Left luggage inside Heathrow Airport

All the left luggage offices at the airport are run by the Excess Baggage Company.

Storage cost

These are the prices for storing one bag of any size. It must weigh less than 32kg.
0-2 hours – £6
2-24 hours – £11
24-72 hours – £7.50
72 hours + – £5 per 24 hours

If you leave a bag for 24 hours it’s £11, for 48 hours it’s £18.50 (£11 + £7.50), for 72 hours it’s £26 (£11 + £.7.50 + £7.50). For 72+ hours, it’s £26 and then £5 for any additional 24 hour period.

Opening hours

All left luggage offices are open every day from 5am to 11pm, except Terminal 4 (5.30am to 11pm).

Left luggage outside the airport

The two self-storage companies listed below are close to the airport. The cost of storage varies according to the size of the locker/unit and the length of time you want to store your bags.

As a rough guide, a 10sq ft small locker is approximately the size of a car boot.

You need to contact them for a price quote.

The Safestore in Feltham is south west of the airport. It’s easy to travel to with a public transport – there’s a direct local bus from all terminals that drops you off just around the corner. Plus there’s a huge Tesco supermarket opposite if you need to buy something to eat.
