Summary

 

London Gatwick is about 55 miles south off the centre of London. It has a North and a South terminal (so when flying back out of Gatwick remember to check where you need to be).

Gatwick recently upgraded their security check system to speed up throughput.

The Transport For London journey planner will help you with this.
