Why Visit Gatwick by Rail?

Gatwick is a major international airport in West Sussex that is known to have the busiest single runway in the world. It serves up to 35 million passengers each year coming from 200 destinations in more than 90 countries all over the world. The airport consists of two terminals, the South and North, which are connected by a free shuttle train. Aside from linking the two terminals, the shuttle train also servers a link towards the airport railway station.

The Gatwick Express is the fastest and most convenient way to get to central London coming from the airport, which takes only 30 minutes to reach the London Victoria Station. Southern and Thameslink also offer services from the Airport railway station going to the various central railway stations in London.

Gatwick’s North Terminal has a wide range of restaurants, shops, cafes, as well as help desks, currency exchange, and left-luggage facilities. There is also a free entertainment zone for the kids in this terminal, as well as Internet kiosks, ATM machines, and mobile phone charging facilities.

For flight departures, the check-in desks are located on the third floor of both the North and South Terminals. All passengers should clear security control before getting into the departure lounge.

For flight arrivals, passengers must first go through passport control after getting out of the aircraft. From passport control, there are signs going to Baggage Reclaim for luggage to be picked up before passing through customs. After exiting the customs, you’ll reach the arrivals hall where you’ll find a number of shops, cafes, restaurants, and currency exchanges.

It’s worth buying the Oyster Card when visiting London for more than a day. You can use the card to travel all over the city by trains and buses. The card can be purchased from the Gatwick Airport train station.
