The UK’s second busiest airport has been our national package holiday jumping off point since the 1950s (although its origins go back decades before) and now serves over 30 million passengers a year on a host of destinations from Alicante to Venice.
The station at Gatwick Airport has easy connections to a host of destinations in the south of England, including stops along the main line to Brighton from London Bridge and London Victoria. As well as services on the Southern network, you can get here on the Gatwick Express in just 30 minutes from London Victoria. First Capital Connect operates a direct service to and from Luton Airport while First Great Western trains provide a direct link with Reading via Guildford.

Gatwick Airport has two main terminals – the original South Terminal and the North Terminal, which was opened in the late 1980s. Both offer a huge array of shopping, eating and drinking options, particularly after clearing security. Sadly, Gatwick doesn’t have a dedicated viewing gallery for watching aircraft movements.
Gatwick Airport has had its own rail station since 1935 – and the much larger present day station is on the same site as the original. At the airport itself, dedicated transit shuttle also runs between the North and South Terminals. It’s free to use.
