I'm a commercial pilot that often flies into LHR.

I'm fascinated by the ATC operation there and I'd like to visit a NATS facility, either the tower at LHR or perhaps the LACC/LTCC in Swanwick.

Is this possible, and if so can I be given a lead or two?

I visited LHR with a colleague a few years ago. I arranged it on the phone after calling the NATS number from the AIP in the Text Data. They were extremely helpful and accommodating.

Coming down to Swanwick to be involved with a STAC or ART session is always appreciated. You get to visit both ops rooms as well. See this thread for details:
