Park Pod at Heathrow Airport

Picnic_plane_17-1_edited

To remind travelers that every restaurant at Heathrow Airport will pack up a to-go meal for you, the airport has set up what it is calling a “sensory park pod” in the still-new Terminal 2.

As you can see from the photo above, the “pod” contains elements of what you might find in a a park: a bench, a patch of grass and some greenery, a blue sky and a picnic basket and blanket.

To help set the scene, the smell of freshly cut grass is somehow piped in, as is the sound of birds chirping in the trees.

It would be lovely if the park pod stayed on as a permanent element of the new terminal, but unfortunately the pod will only be around until September 24, 2014.
