Gatwick Airport is one of the major UK airports and was the one we flew from for our honeymoon. Before flying to America, I would have been willing to say that most airports are pretty much the same…. Having flown to Newark a couple of years ago, I have been put right on that score. Location...

Gatwick Airport is a busy place, but for me remains one of my favourite international airports. (Not that I have visited many!) The airport is well organised, but is split into two North Terminal and South Terminal. There is a shuttle link between the two Terminals. Gatwick Airport is part of the...

ConsNot the easiest to get to.

To be honest Gatwick airport is one that I try to avoid, not for any other reason than it is possibly the trickiest of the major UK airports for me to get to form the East Midlands where I live. However, when I booked my flights for my recent trip to Canada, the best fare was via Gatwick, so I...

Gatwick Airport for me is a must to avoid. I last went through there a year ago and it was a disaster. I note that most of the Ciao reviews were written before the current security measures came into place, when they would have been justifyably more favourable. I hope, but doubt, that it has...

Now I could blind you all with facts and figures about Gatwick but then you would all get bored and I am sure a lot of you already know how to get to Gatwick. However I noticed that there have been no reviews done on Gatwick since 2002. If you need all the facts figures and information then go to...

“A Hub of the Community”

published 19/03/2001

ProAccessibility, Accomodation, Amenities

ConsNot every airline features, quite high Airport Tax

Being the UK's second largest airport, London Gatwick has the job of catering for the overflow from Heathrow and does it very well indeed. This is an outline of what Gatwick offers. LOCATION/ACCESSIBILITY The name London Gatwick is slightly misleading because it is not in London at all. It is in...

London Gatwick puts London Heathrow airport to shame, this is a modern, clean and well presented airport. Gatwick is served by many transport links and is well situated for access to central London. On arrival at Gatwick it is a pleasant surprise to see concise and clear signage directing the...

Prothings to do

Consbusy

London Gatwick Airport, designed and built to take the excess air traffic away from London Heathrow, but is today a London airport in itself. The second largest airport in the UK boasts good facilities. I use Gatwick regularly, and if I am to fly out from the South terminal I always arrive very...

ProGood access links, Good facilities

Consnone

People may complain about this country but one thing you can say is we have pretty good airports and Gatwick as Londons number two airport is no exception. The airport is well served by road and rail links with the M23 providing the main arterial road link and the Gatwick express service...

I live not far from Gatwick and use it not just as hub to get a plane for A to B but for many other reasons too. I'm originally from Liverpool so I'm not biased. I'm recommending Gatiwick because I feel it puts the other UK airports to shame. Ok it only has one runway. But it has two terminals...

“Gatwick good or bad?”

published 18/07/2000

Gatwick airport is far more accessible than it used to be since the M25 was completed. It is, as a result, one that can be considered by those other than from south of the River. Whilst we like to think we have a choice most people fly from gatwick because that's where the holiday package company...

I used Gatwick North terminal for the first time to travel GB Airways (British Airways). The terminal is too large - for a number of reasons. The "on-airport" long-stay car parking is a 10 minute bus journey form the airport and the car park is huge (we parked in zone Z). The length of the check...

“Best of the Big Airports”

published 09/09/2000

ProGood range of faci;lities and ground transport

ConsSome long walks

As big airports go, Gatwick is hard to beat. The two terminals (north and south) have their own character, but these comments can apply equally to both. Gatwick is well signed, and while it is busy and there can be queues it all seems to be relatively hastle free. Shops and restaurants are better...

London Gatwick Aiport as it is now known, is actually on the Surrey - West Sussex border and a good half an hour or so from Victoria by train. It consists of two terminals, North and South, which are linked by a monorail which is accessible to all passengers, staff and visitors. The train station...

Having worked at this airport for the past 7 years - I can only agree with most of the comments already stated. Gatwick is well laid out, easy to find - weather it be by road, rail or bus with ample parking,and above all clean! There are a wide selection of shops both landside and airside...
