When travelling from Gatwick airport (LGW) to the city centre of London, you have 3 different modes of transport to choose from; taxi, train and bus. The most convenient transfer option to get downtown is by hiring a Gatwick airport taxi. A taxi ride will cost around €68 (£63) based on a taximeter and it will take you just over an hour to reach your desired destination. Taking the Gatwick Express train is by far the quickest way to reach the city centre from Gatwick airport. Train tickets cost €22.50 (£19.90) one-way and the journey into London will take only 30 minutes. A cheaper, but much slower alternative is the easyBus or National Express bus. The price of a bus ticket is only €9 (£8) and the trip takes approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to London at the same price as a regular taxi. Click here to see the cost.
