Timetables

Our trains run twice per hour, taking you between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport. To see the exact departure and arrival times, download our timetable here

Our route

Gatwick Express is a non-stop train between London Victoria, Gatwick Airport, Haywards Heath and Brighton.

At Gatwick Airport, the train station is situated in the heart of the airport at the South Terminal. If you’re travelling to or from the North Terminal, a fast inter-terminal transit shuttle connects the North Terminal to the train station and the South Terminal.

London Victoria is well connected to other travel links. It’s on the London Underground’s Victoria, District and Circle lines, making it easy to get around central London. If you’re headed elsewhere, Victoria bus station is next door, and it’s only a short walk to the National Express coach station.
