What country does her passport belong to? If her country is not on the list of countries on the visa waiver program of UK, she needs a British visa. She will need to go to British embassy to apply for a visa or look up for "British embassy in <your country>" online and apply for transit visa or visitor visa.

Thank you guys for your replies.My wife is from Kenya.In this case,I think we will try temporary visa in transit,though I don't know whether one can apply that at the airport,or prior.

She absolutely needs a visa. I have gone through London couple times when I had a Green card and they require a visa even to transit let alone exiting the airport.

She would need a visitor in transit visa.

Just wondering why and what she would be doing?

My guess would be to meet friends/families instead of hanging out in the airport for eight hours which can be boring.....just guessing.
