Filipino Transiting Through London Heathrow

I am a Filipino traveling back to Philippines with a flight from Sweden-London (Heathrow) - Hongkong-Manila. I have some questions.  Do I need a transit visa in London Heathrow to travel between Terminals 3 and 5 or vice versa? (My luggage is checked in all the way through.)

Use the official United Kingdom government website:

As a Filipino citizen you do not need a visa to make a transfer at a UK airport as long as you stay airside. 

As your bags are checked-through you will not need to enter the UK and go landside. Your onward boarding pass and ID will be checked, you and your cabin bags will go through security scanning and you will travel by dedicated airside transfer bus from T3 to T5.

The official Heathrow Airport website gives step-by-step transfer details for your particular flights:
