We were very surprised at how empty it was- it was even emptier on the way back. When we were at the gate to board I kept expecting a big group to turn up but it never happened!

Thank you! Our first day was idyllic

We got an Uber! It was about $25/30 and took about 35 minutes I think. It was a cheaper then some other options we looked at, like the airport transfers BA was offering. Probably could have done a coach trip cheaper but we wanted to go straight to the hotel and get some sleep so it was worth it for us.

Oh great! I thought I read ubers could only drop off from the airport not pick up! - was the pick up point easy enough to find?

I didn't write about this in the trip report because I felt it was my own stupidity but we actually got lost trying to find the uber pick up, and ended up next to the magic express! I joked afterwards my feet had taken me where they wanted to go.

I can't remember which floor it is on now but it does have signage, we just felt the signage was best once you are actually on the right floor for it. When we went wrong there was no signage to say that it was on another floor. I would make sure you ask a human you works there at the first possibility, so you can be sure.

Once you are in the right place there are two bays they can pick up from and the uber app will ask you to choose one of the two so they know where to pick you up. It seems to work well enough.
