Concorde RoomBack to Forum
Anonymous23 Jan 2014
I am preparing for my F flight with BA next week and need some info. I have read about a secret door to the right of security that leads to the Concorde Room, saving me from having to walk all the way around. Is it obvious which door this is? I don´t want to be trying to act all sophisticated and end up walking into the broom cupboard!
Also, what Champagnes are on offer. Is it the same as on board i.e. Grand Siecle or are there other options?23 Jan 2014
Very obvious. Go through security close to zone J and there is a double door immediately to the right of where you pick your bags off the security conveyor. There will be a BA member of staff at the door turning away the “unclean” !! You can’t miss it.23 Jan 2014
Hi FCW , after you have checked in at the First desk the security lanes near that mean that you are only about 20 yds from the door , it s clearly visible and when we arrived there we were greeted by 2 people on the door welcoming us , I found all the staff smiling , helpful and it was a very relaxed atmosphere , you can sit at the bar or be served while on the sofas , I think and stand corrected but if you venture into the F lounge as you look right there is a champagne bar there too .
We really enjoyed the CCR , I’m sure you will too , as Gold 2k said , contact You First if you want to book a spa treatment , we booked the massage chairs and they are fantastic . Have a great time !!!23 Jan 2014
But once you have tried the CCR feel free to go and try out the F Lounge. I actually prefer it to the CCR as there is more to see and do, particularly where it is situated looking out to the runway.24 Jan 2014
+1 charlesRhona, I also prefer the First lounge at T5 as it is more amicable and less stuffy (I prefer pouring my own bubbly than having to order each time). The CCR comes into its own, however, when the First lounge is over flowing busy, then the CCR is heaven!24 Jan 2014
Certainly worth lounge surfing; do ensure you call YouFirst for your Spa appointment and/or cabana booking:
Save some space for the Concorde Roast.
This link sets out the sort of slop you can expect:
