Closed for demolition in June 2015. The land to be joined with terminal 2 to form a new single building called Heathrow East. Project to complete stage 1 by 2019.

Built in 1968 at its time of closure Terminal 1 served all domestic and Ireland flights within the UK. The terminal also served the majority of flights to European destinations where the carrier was a UK airline and selected Intercontinental flights. Some European British airways flights also went from terminal 4.

Details below is the last information from when the terminal was open pre 2015. It is for historical interest only.
The check-in area is on the first floor with the taxi/car drop-off area on the same level adjacent to the terminal. You cannot park your vehicle at the drop-of point, only let out passengers. The ground level drop-off and pickup points are for coaches and buses only.
There are 2 fixed computer internet access console locations airside of terminal 1. Next to Costa in UK and Ireland departures and near the passenger transfer area in international departures. This is in addition to the WI-Fi access that is available throughout all terminals provided by multiple suppliers.
There are several baby changing facilities both landside and also airside in terminal 1. Also you will find play areas provided for small children including one airside by Gates 35-56 (international departures), near Caffé Nero. The play area is recommended for kids 2 to 6 years old, they include Fingaboxes (interactive and educational games consoles).
The terminal information desks are open 06:00-23:00. There is also a separate dedicated bus and coach information desk and another in a corner adjacent to the lifts for Heathrow Express and TFL Railtrain services.
There is a left luggage service (for a charge of course) open 06:00-23:00. This is located on the Mezzanine floor between departures/arrivals.
If you have a need for posting facilities you will find both a post box and stamp machine in terminal 1.
There are both currency exchange booths as well as ATM machines.
There are a large selection of beauty shops, fashion shops, bars and food outlets both landside and airside of all terminals. These include well known names such as Costa, Boots, W H Smiths and burger King.
If you need to connect with the Heathrow Express or TFL Rail service then you'll find a dedicated desk in the far corner of the terminal one arrivals by the lifts. Here you can purchase tickets or just get relevant information.
Major car rental companies have desks inside the terminal including Avis, Hertz, National, Europcar, Budget and Enterprise. You will find shuttle bus services to the pickup points at stands 4 and 5 on the forecourt pickup area outside departures on the ground level for rentals on the airport. For off-airport pickups use stand 7.
For the Hotel Hoppa Bus use stands 8 and 9.
The bus and coach stands are split over two sides of terminal 1. Stands 1-7 are on the main entrance side opposite the short term car park on the ground floor arrivals level. Stands 8-12 are on the far side of the building. These stands are entirely under cover which is helpful in adverse weather. From the ground floor arrivals area just follow the appropriate signs. The entrance is in the corner by the lifts and includes a comfortable sitting area, though you cant use this if you are waiting on a stand (or you will miss the coach!).
