We come from a very small town, and travelling can be overwhelming and stressful at times. Our transport from Gatwick airport to Victoria Station in London was definitely easy and stress free. We definitely recommend for other country bumpkin travelers.
Everything worked like clock work, so glad I booked my return trip prior to leaving the USA. Much easier then trying to book at the airport with all the lines and confusion. Made the trip very enjoyable.
Easy to get to, easy to get on, good people with information. Trip was quick and quiet.
I booked our ticket online before leaving home. It was so convieient once we arrived at the Gatwick airport to catch the free shuttle to the south terminal where we caught the Gatwick Express to Victoria Train Station in London. Easy peesy!!
Comfortable train. Departs on time. Helpful staff.
Getting the tickets in advance to get from South Gatwick to London was an excellent choice and experience. All worked out as planned and on time.
We ordered the tickets online and it was very efficient. I recommend the Gatwick Express. You could include some instructions on how to use these tickets for those of us who have never used the London transit system as it is confusing when you first arrive. The train itself works very well to get you directly from Gatwick to Victoria Station.
