One Hundred and Sixty One: Sleeping in an airport is NO fun

I do not recommend sleeping in an airport, definitely book a hotel in advance if you're getting a late flight.

If you do get stuck at Heathrow I recommend going up to to Yotel and if they have no rooms free then there a few benches nearby that are a good place to sleep. As this way you are up a floor from the entrance to the airport, making it a little safer. Also as a tip, wool (if you have any) and clothes stuffed into a bag make a great pillow.
