Many airports have either a multi-faith prayer room (Luton, Zurich) or separate rooms for several different faiths (JFK). Does Heathrow have either of these, and do they have set times for Jewish prayers, either in this room or somewhere else? I will be transferring there and need an afternoon service.

Alternatively, what is the nearest scheduled early afternoon prayers to Heathrow?
