How can one go between central London and Gatwick Airport?

One of the fastest ways to travel between Gatwick Airport and downtown London is by taking the Gatwick Express train. It runs every 15 minutes and takes one from the airport to Victoria Station in central London in 30 minutes. The train cabins have a good amount of room for storing luggage. Standard fare for adults costs £16.19.

A cheaper alternative is the Southern Train, which makes 2 stops between Victoria Station and Gatwick Airport and costs only £10.90. On average, the difference between the Southern and Gatwick Express train trip durations is about 5 minutes.

If London Bridge Station or St Pancras International Station are more convenient for you, the First Capital Connection offers non-stop trains that can take you to those stations in 30 and 45 minutes respectively. The standard fare costs £10.90.

A budget-conscious option is the easyBus, which runs every 20 to 30 minutes between Victoria and Gatwick stations with two other stops in between. Advance ticket purchases cost as little as £2 depending on the date and the time of day you will be traveling. The trip takes about an hour and 20 minutes.

Taxis are also availabe but are likely to take over an hour and cost £70 or more.
