London’s second largest international airport (after Heathrow), Gatwick is located near the town of Crawley, West Sussex, 27 miles south of Central London.
The airport has two terminals – North and South – which are joined by shuttle train and bus services. Gatwick’s railway station is located in the older and busier South Terminal. There are facilities for baby changing and feeding, and play areas and video games for children; business travellers have specialised lounges. On 31 May 2008, Virgin Holidays opened the V Room, Gatwick’s first lounge dedicated to leisure travellers, for use by Virgin Holidays customers flying to Orlando, Las Vegas and the Caribbean on sister airline Virgin Atlantic. There are connections to London Victoria and London Bridge stations, as well as Brighton, Luton, Reading and Oxford. Customers travelling to or from Victoria station can take a quicker “Gatwick Express” train service, which runs every 15 minutes and takes 30 minutes. Various bus companies operate coaches to Heathrow Airport and Stansted Airport, as well as cities and towns throughout the region and country.
