The Waterside building in Harmondsworth, London Borough of Hillingdon, England, is the international head office of the airline British Airways. The building, which cost £200 million, is located on Harmondsworth Moor, northwest of London Heathrow Airport and located between the M4 motorway and the M25 motorway.
The building was completed in June 1998. The building, which held its official opening in 1998, includes six sections backing into a 175-metre glazed atrium street; each section represents a continent served by British Airways.Each section has a different theme based on the continent. For instance, Cherry trees are planted in the Asia-themed section, Eucalyptus trees are planted in the Australia-themed section, Birch saplings were planted in the Europe section, and Hardwood saplings are planted in the North America-themed section. Nonie Niesewand of The Independent said that the head office site is "the size of a small town, but on a site as big as Regent''s Park." The building was nicknamed "Ayling Island," after BA chief executive Bob Ayling, by local taxi drivers.

Inns are generally establishments or buildings where travellers can seek lodging and, usually, food and drink. They are typically located in the country or along a highway. Found in Europe, they possibly first sprang up when the Romans built their system of Roman roads two millennia ago. Some inns in Europe are several centuries old. In addition to providing for the needs of travellers, inns traditionally acted as community gathering places.
In Europe, it is the provision of accommodation, if anything, that now separates inns from taverns, alehouses and pubs. The latter tend to supply alcohol , but less commonly accommodation. Inns tend to be grander and more long-lived establishments; historically they provided not only food and lodging, but also stabling and fodder for the traveller''s horse and fresh horses for the mail coach. Famous London examples of inns include the George and The Tabard. There is however no longer a formal distinction between an inn and other kinds of establishment. Many pubs use the name "inn", either because they are long established and may have been formerly coaching inns, or to summon up a particular kind of image.
