Zoom to the airport with Gatwick Express
Gatwick Express has been running direct train services from London Victoria Station to Gatwick since 1984. It is considered the fastest train service to Gatwick Airport from Central London, and is the only non-stop option available.
The Gatwick Airport railway station first opened in 1958, and was a stop on the line from London to Brighton only. However, as air travel increased in popularity (sorry, Greta) and the need for train transport to London Gatwick increased, faster services became a priority. It is currently run by Govia Thameslink Railway.
Gatwick Express travels non-stop between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport. It takes only 29 or 37 minutes to travel to the airport to the center of London, meaning you can continue your journey by national rail services, or by hopping on the London Victoria Line of the London Underground—getting you to your final destination safely.
