If you follow us on Twitter, you’ll know that this week’s blog is talking about the Gatwick Express over the Christmas period.
From the 24th of Decmeber, running through to the 4th of January, there will be no Gatwick express service active due to major rail improvement work. In other words, it’s going to get a lot harder travelling to and from Gatwick over the holidays, which is a worrying thought if you’ve got a nice break planned over Christmas!
There is a slow train running from Victoria via Horsham, which we consider will be extremely busy, and a struggle if travelling with suitcases, or wheelchair/prams. Travelling this way can also be a pain when you’re in large group, with children, or elders.
There are a few other alternate routes, which result in a bus change from the train to airport. You can travel to Victoria, from there get a train to East Grinstead (two trains per hour), and then hop on a replacement bus service to Gatwick Airport. Once again this journey is not suited to those with heavy luggage, and those in wheelchairs.
