Christmas and New Year services

Christmas and New Year servicesMajor improvement work between Gatwick Airport and London Victoria this Christmas

From 2200 Thursday 24 December 2015 until 0400 Monday 4 January 2016, Gatwick Express services will not run due to major rail improvement work.

There will be two options for travel between Gatwick Airport and London Victoria:

Two Southern trains per hour will run between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport via Horsham. This journey will take approximately 90 minutes.

Alternatively, you will be able to travel by train from Victoria to East Grinstead (Two trains per hour) and use the rail replacement bus service to Gatwick Airport. This option will also take around 90 minutes. This option would be more suited to those who do not require assistance and who have light luggage.

However, on Boxing Day, Saturday 26 December, there is just one route between Gatwick and Victoria. If you are travelling from Gatwick Airport into London, you will need to take the replacement bus service to East Grinstead and change onto a train for Victoria, and vice-versa for travel from Victoria to Gatwick Airport.
