Gatwick Airport Transfers To Central London

Gatwick Airport is located about 45 miles south of central London, outside of London's transport areas, so it is not possible to get from Gatwick Airport to central London by subway. To get to central London from Gatwick airport there are different options, such as trains, buses and taxi, as we explain below:
Gatwick Airport train to central London
Gatwick express
The Gatwick Express train is the fast high-speed direct train to get from Gatwick airport to Victoria station in central London. A Gatwick Express train departs every 15 minutes and the journey takes about 30 minutes. London Victoria station is in zone 1 of London, and here there is connection with metro and buses. If you buy a round trip ticket, the return ticket is valid for 1 month. The price of the ticket for the Gatwick Express train is about £ 35 round trip, but the price may vary depending on the date. You can use the ticket for the Gatwick Express at any time of the day you have chosen, not having to worry about whether your flight is advanced or delayed when you arrive in London.
Southern Trains
Every 15 minutes a train leaves from Gatwick Airport in the direction of London Victoria station in London zone 1 with stops at East Croydon and Clapham Junction. The price is usually about £ 30 per person round trip, but the price may vary depending on the date. The Southern company train usually takes about 5-10 minutes longer to reach London Victoria station than the Gatwick Express.

All these stations are in zone 1 of London and have connection with metro. This journey may take approximately 1 hour 10 minutes. The price is usually about £ 20 per person round trip.

The National Express bus company runs the Gatwick - London Victoria airport, with a bus every 15 minutes. Along the way, make the following stops: Lower Kingswood, Banstead, Belmont, Sutton Rail Station, Sutton Center, Rosehill, Mitcham, Streatham, Stockwell and Vauxhall. It is an important British coach company that offers very comfortable coaches for transfers from different airports to central London, from 6 pounds per person each way. Each passenger can carry two suitcases of up to 20 kg in the trunk of the bus plus a piece of hand luggage. You can buy the ticket for the National Express bus for a specific day, without having to indicate time. This way you should not worry if your flight is delayed.
Private transfers from Gatwick Airport to central London
As I said before, the best way to book a Gatwick taxi from any of the airports in London to the city center is by booking a minicab. When booking a minicab you will pay a fee set in advance, without relying on a meter and traffic and you have the option to pay in advance online, so you will not have to worry about carrying extra pounds in cash for the journey. This is the option that we usually choose if we want to go by Gatwick minicab to the airport. You can as well hire this taxi for seaport transfers (Southampton, Portsmouth, Dover.etc)
Shared transfers from Gatwick Airport to central London
The shared Gatwick Airport Transfers from the airport to the city center is one of the increasingly popular airport transfers. It is a taxi or a kind of minibus from a private transfer company that makes numerous journeys from the airports to the center throughout the day and one airport to another like Gatwick To Heathrow Airport. If there are more passengers who have booked this option you will share the trip with them, but it may also be that at the time you need the transfer there is no one else. The driver will leave passengers at the door of the hotels that passengers need in central London. It is also possible to book this option from the hotel to the airport.
