London Gatwick has the best train connections of any airport in Britain as we connect passengers to 120 train stations directly and over 700 within just one change.
The train station can be found at the South Terminal, just a five minutes walk from both departures and arrivals. It is easily accessible from the North Terminal too with our free shuttle service taking just two minutes.
We are served by four train operators that directly connect you to over 120 stations across the UK, tickets for all of which can be purchased in advance from the National Rail website.
With a number of options available to you, travelling by train to and from London Gatwick couldn't be easier. Not only can you purchase tickets in advance directly via any one of the operators mentioned above, or by visiting the National Rail website, but you can also purchase on the day tickets in the ticket hall located in the South Terminal.
Perhaps the most convenient way of all though is to simply tap in or out using your Oyster or Contactless payment card at the ticket gates.
To secure the best rates however, we would always recommend you book your train tickets as far in advance of your journey as possible.
Your travel to and from London Gatwick via rail during December may be disrupted. We recommend you plan your journey well in advance and consider alternative transportation options on the below dates if you feel your journey is likely to be affected.
During the national ASLEF train drivers’ strike and overtime ban, between Friday 1 and Saturday 9 December there will be changes to train services across the rail network with different train companies being impacted on different days.
On all days, services will be extremely busy, queuing systems will be in place, and you may not be able to board your chosen train, so please leave plenty of extra time for your journey. Depending on queue length, it may not be possible to board late evening trains. Please plan with this in mind.
The dedicated Gatwick Express non-stop service between Victoria and Gatwick will not operate throughout this period. However, the Airport will continue to be served by Southern and Thameslink trains, but with alterations to those services every day as a result of the rolling period of industrial action. Further details below on the day-by-day impacts can be found below:
As other train operators are also affected by this industrial action, with strikes taking place on different days, please plan your whole journey ahead of time to ensure your onward connections are available on the day you are travelling.
As well as the below, rail travel to and from London Gatwick may be disrupted due to adverse weather conditions and we recommend you plan your journey well in advance.
We are not aware of any planned industrial action in January 2024, however we do expect some disruption caused by planned engineering works. We will update this page with more information as it becomes available.
