I spent the night in Heathrow Terminal in London myself. What advice I can give you is as follows:

Get there before 8pm...I was there in December last year and there must have been at least another 50 people there. Since they dont allow you into the waiting areas behind the security doors, you have to sleep on the little chairs or floor while you are waiting. I arrived expecting it to be fairly empty; it wasn't. I recommend the second floor as a waiting/sleeping area...and there is only one thing open that late: Starbucks Coffee, so bring some food with you to the airport if you think you will be hungry.

Good Luck/Cheers,
