UK airport lounge reviewers wanted!

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

EDIT:  All slots are taken except for Norwich!  Thanks to everyone who volunteered.

Over the last few years, we have published reviews of many of the major airport lounges in the UK.

You can see our full list of UK airport lounge reviews here.

However, try as we might, we will never manage to get around them all.  Whilst we rarely accept airline or hotel reviews written by readers, we are happy to have your help in finishing off our list of UK airport lounge reviews.

Because, let’s be honest, neither Anika or myself are going to be in Norwich Airport in the near future …..

This is the list of UK airport lounges we are missing which can be accessed by Priority Pass and, in many cases, Lounge Club.

If you are planning to visit the lounge in any of these airports soon and would be willing to write a review of us, we’d be happy to run it.  It isn’t much work – all you need to do is take around 10 photos on your smartphone and write 4-5 paragraphs about what was on offer.  We will make it all nice and pretty!

Here is an example of a reader review of the lounge at Humberside Airport.

These are the lounges we still need:

Durham Tees Valley – Premium Lounge (photo above)

East Midlands – The Escape Lounge

Manchester T1 – The Escape Lounge

Manchester T2 – The Escape LoungeAspire lounge

Norwich International – Executive Lounge

We will also be looking for someone to cover the new Bournemouth lounge when it opens in June.

We’d also like to hear from you if you are planning to visit an airline-operated lounge outside London, such as the Emirates lounge in Glasgow, because we have not covered many of these in the past.

If you can help, please email rob [at]  If you don’t have an ‘unlimited visits’ Priority Pass we’re happy to pay for your admission.

  1. I’d love to provide an updated review of Aspire Liverpool….. I flew out of Liverpool a week ago during the school holidays, and it was in a word awful!!!

    It was busy, and noisy and there were empty plates and glasses everywhere. The other gusts of the lounge clearly wanted everyone to hear there conversations, including such discussions as….

    “£30 each, that a bargain, i’ve already drunk at least £45 worth of drinks already, and i’ve stashed at least 5 pack of crisps for the flight…..” and so it went on!!!

    Clearly this group of gueasts had demolished all food and snack options as the counters were bare!! save a few crumbs of chease and some rather stale crackers.

    Coupled with the guests being noisy the staff were also pretty loud (maybe to be heard over the din), but worse they were over familiar.

    There did not appear to be any sort of dress code being enforced whatsoever, I wont go into some of the sights, but needless to say, it did not help me relax.

    Finally, the wine selection seemed to consist of a house red or house white…. that was it.

    Almost worse than all of the above, the lounge itself is like sitting in a goldfish bowl, every single passenger walking through the concourse walks past the lounge looking in, there is zero privacy.

    Maybe I visited at the wrong time, but all in all, not a relaxing experience and certainly one I hope not to repeat any time soon.

  2. Hi Rob ,
    I have been reading this site for a while, and it have been very useful to save me at least I would say about 500-1000gbp per year , with hotel promos or iberia offers , etc.
    I am running myself photography travelogue as I call it , completely for myself and uncommercial without any banners etc or any other monetisation, you can see it via link , so if you think any photographs from my travelogue would benefit HFP , I happy for you to use them on uncommercial basis , maybe just attribution or link to source somewhere,
    I hope HFP will continue to be go to source for any objective information about miles , points , promotions.

    UK Airport Lounges Reviews Wanted – how about further afield? Have you thought of asking raders to submit their reviews of some oversea lounges you have not visited, or may be have no wish to visit! We use Paphos regularly and would be happy to submit an offering. Thoroughly enjoy the reviews, thank you!

    • The thing is … with just three articles per day, we are very focused on running articles which appeal to the most readers possible. If a lounge is news-worthy we will do it (I’d be happy to cover the new BA lounge in Rome for example) but general ones like Paphos don’t really justify it. We don’t review most of the lounges we visit ourselves unless it is part of a full trip report.

    What’s the point of this when you can just put xxxxx lounge review into Google and you’ll get a review already.

  5. Mark says:

    If you had the choice of the Club Aspire LGW (N) or paying the £5 fee for No1 Lounge LGW (N) which would you go for??

    • No 1 is the nicer facility in terms of light and views, but what are you after? No 1 is generally as rammed, if not more so, than outside in terms of people per square foot, Aspire is quieter. We have reviewed both.

      • Mark says:

        Thanks for your response, Rob. I’m flying to Basel with U2 on Wednesday morning so my aim is to have a couple of coffee’s and something to eat. As I prefer a heartier breakfast and from your review I thought I would be better suited to the Club Aspire? Would you agree?
