Coach & bus
Frequent coach services connect Gatwick with more than 400 UK towns and cities.
Direct services run to destinations including Heathrow, central London, Bristol, Brighton, Birmingham, Oxford, Cambridge and Norwich.
Most services operate from the lower South Terminal forecourt. Some also call at North Terminal (on the lower level outside international arrivals).
There are National Express ticket desks in the North and South Terminals. Tickets for most other services can be booked in advance with the coach operator or bought on board.
Nearly all coach services operated by National Express are wheelchair accessible. Step-free access to the coach is provided by a passenger lift in the main door of the vehicle. Customers can either travel in their wheelchair or transfer to a seat and put the wheelchair in the hold. However, due to the large variety of wheelchairs people use, National Express ask that you book at least 36 hours before travel so they can check that your wheelchair is compatible.
Most services operate from the lower South Terminal forecourt. Some also call at North Terminal (on the lower level outside international arrivals). For more information please call the National Express Assisted Travel team on +44 (0)871 818178. Lines are open 7 days a week between 8am and 8pm.
