Cheaper than left-luggage storage

Our Wandsworth storage centre is a taxi, car or bus ride away from Heathrow Airport and can often work out much cheaper alternative than any on-site left-luggage services that may be available.

For example*: If you’re a family with 4 bags to store for 5 days - the typical cost of leaving luggage at major London transport hubs can be as much as £8 per bag per day - and five days could easily cost well over £100.

ABC Selfstore lockers - which will take all 4 bags and more - start at less than £2 a day. That could save you £100 on that 5 day stay with 4 bags! If you have more bags or are staying longer then the savings could be even greater.

*Savings quoted are for illustrative purposes and were representative at the time of writing. ABC locker prices vary according to locker size, store location and seasonal demand.

About Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Airport, also known as London Heathrow, is the major London airport, and is one of the top five busiest airports in the world. It lies at west the edge of London, near to the town of Hounslow, and is connected to London by both the Heathrow Express, which is a dedicated non-stop tube from Heathrow to London Paddington, and also by the Piccadilly line, which serves terminals 1, 2, 3 & 4, along with a tube to Hatton Cross for the maintenance bays of the airport. There are also a number of red-bus connections between the Heathrow terminals and London City.

Heathrow began life as a small aerodrome close to a village known as Heathrow. This village had been settled since the Neolithic period, and there are several earthworks and potential archaeological sites beneath Terminal 3 of the airport. Originally purchased in 1929 as an aerodrome dedicated to test flights, known as Great Western Aerodrome, it was considered to be an ideal place for flying due to the flatness of the surrounding area. Norman Macmillan, who had previously been forced to land in Heathrow Fields, suggested the purchase to Fairey Aviation.

During the Second World War Heathrow was taken over by the Air Ministry, but was mainly used as a stopping-off point for fighter planes. However, notes from the Air Ministry suggest that the government were planning to requisition the airfield, noting its suitability for long-range bombing flights, and possibly because they were planning a long-term creation of a new airport for international flights. By the end of the Second World War Heathrow was in the hands of the government, and a new airport was under construction. The land was never returned to Fairey Aviation, and the owner sought compensation for this appropriation of his lands until 1964.

After the end of the War, Government Ministers continued to encourage the building of the airport on the ground. The land was officially transferred to the civil sector, and in 1946 the Minister for Aviation opened the airport for commercial use. The name originally given to this new construction was simply London Airport.

The runways had been constructed around a Star-of-David design which allowed planes to take off and land no matter what way the wind was blowing, ensuring safety for passengers and crew.

Heathrow Terminal 5, the latest addition to Hearthrow, was opening in 2008.
