Heathrow (Terminals 1, 2, 3, Terminal 4 and Terminal 5).
Heathrow was recorded as Hetherewe in 1547 and was, perhaps, the home of John atte Hethe who lived here in the 14th century. The name is probably derived from the Old English haep, 'heath' and raev, 'row' - 'the row of houses on the heath'. Alternatively, the second half of the name may derive from the old English word ruh which means 'rough or uncultivated ground', and perhaps Heathrow originally was 'the rough heath'. It now houses one of the world's busiest airports.

HEATHROW TERMINALS 1,2,3 was opened as HEATHROW CENTRAL on 16 December 1976, which was changed to HEATHROW CENTRAL TERMINALS 1,2,3 on 3 October 1983 and gained its present name on 12 April 1986. HEATHROW TERMINAL 4 station was opened on 12 April 1986.

Heathrow Terminal 5, opening spring 2008, is the only Underground station owned by BAA, the airport company.
