The gov.uk website will have more information on this. As long as you don't plan on leaving the airport you should be considered as transit. Heathrow has a lot of shops and restaurants you can go to during your layover.

    Hi Josh, if you're going to indicate a site that has the info, perhaps you could link to the relevant page. Otherwise they just have to go on your word, or go hunting through a very large website :/ – Mark Mayo Aug 10 '14 at 13:35
