Gatwick Airport Information

Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport is located 46km (28.4 miles) south of central London. The non stop Gatwick Express train is the preferred and recommended way of travelling to the airport from London as it takes just 30 minutes, and trains depart every 15 minutes.

Going by road in a taxi or minicab will take approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, and traffic is unpredictable. The cost of a taxi is not cheap, and car parking at Gatwick Airport for any length of time can add up. You should avoid the road!

Rail Station Information

Gatwick Airport station is located in the heart of the South Terminal.
