I will be arriving with my toddler in Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 via British Airways, and leaving the next day from Terminal 5 also on British Airways. I have booked a room at Sofitel near Terminal 5 and applied for visas so we can exit the airport and go to the hotel.
- When we arrive at Terminal 3, should we follow the purple signs that say "connecting flights" and transfer to Terminal 5 and leave for the hotel from there?
- Or, should we go through Immigration at Terminal 3 and then proceed to the hotel in Terminal 5?
- My bags will be checked to the final destination; will that be a problem since I will be leaving the airport during transit?
