Heathrow Q-Park Self Park
Compare and pre-book this car park at Heathrow airport to save up to 60% off gate prices.
Leave the M4 at Junction 3 and follow the A312 towards Hounslow / Feltham.
At the Jolly Waggoners roundabout turn right onto A4 (Bath Road towards Heathrow).
Q-Park is approximately 1 mile along the A4 on the left, next door to the Premier Inn Hotel.
Follow signs for Q-Park Self Park arrivals, taking a right after the camera tunnel. Park in an arrivals bay outside reception, then head inside with your booking confirmation details and hand over your keys. Please Note: Your car will only be moved in an emergency, otherwise it will stay where you parked it.
You'll receive a ticket that allows access to the shuttle bus to the airport; keep this to hand as you'll need to show the bus driver. It'll also explain the returns procedure for when you get back.
Buses run to T2, T3 and T5 from 3.45 am until 12 midnight every 20 minutes and take 10-15 minutes. Make sure you get the right bus though; there are different buses for each terminal, don't get caught out!
Head to the bus stop to catch your shuttle back to the car park. The bus stop number is different depending on which terminal you've flown into:
T2: bus stop 17
T3: bus stop 22
T5: bus stop 30.
CCTV, Barrier Control and Security Guards.

It was very confusing that there was no "Q Parking" sign outside - it had been changed to Purple parking and we thought we were in the wrong place. Otherwise the service went well, thank you.

The overall experience was positive. However, two things were unhelpful . The car park is no longer called Q Park but is now named Purple Parking: caused a bit of confusion at 4.30 am when following the directions for the car park. Likewise, with the pick up outside Terminal One on our return , the bus arrived at a different location than the one we had been told. However, despite these issues everything went smoothly and reasonable efficiently.

Second time I have used Q Park and again, they are very slow at picking you up from the terminal. About 25 minutes this time.
