A quick guide to London Gatwick Airport

Halfway between London and the south coast, Gatwick is perfectly positioned for you to explore the many and varied delights of the capital and south-east of England. Gatwick is the ideal starting point for both business and leisure trips to the UK.

Capital assets

One of the world's most visited cities, London offers something to suit every taste. From history and culture to an unparalleled array of cuisines, music and theatre, you’ll find it all in London. Evidence of the city’s rich and eventful past are everywhere, from the Tower of London to Westminster Abbey, but these ancient landmarks have been joined by some equally striking 21st century buildings in a city that refuses to stand still.

Most notable among these are the wonderfully innovative Tate Modern extension and the Switch House, described as the capital’s ‘cathedral of culture’ and housing some of the most important works in modern art. The Big Smoke’s cultural credentials run deep, but pride of place has to go to the British Museum, which houses a vast collection of art and artefacts from all corners of the globe, the largest and most comprehensive in existence; all of which can be admired for free.

Make sure to plan a trip to central London and you’ll be almost overwhelmed with the constant clamour of major museums, galleries and iconic sights, huddled closely together. But it’s worth venturing out a little to wander the green expanses of Hampstead Heath, in the north of the city, or Kew Gardens and Richmond Park in the south-west, with Henry VIII’s impressive Hampton Court Palace standing on the opposite bank.

Brighton rocks

Only 40 minutes south of Gatwick, on the Sussex coast, stands bohemian Brighton, one of England’s most famous old seaside resorts. The must-see sight is the Royal Pavilion, built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV. It’s one of the most opulent buildings in England, and mixes regency grandeur with the exotic stylings of the Orient. It’s also worth making time for Brighton’s newest attraction, the i-360, a slender 162m-tall tower of reinforced steel and concrete that punctures the skyline. The tower is encircled by a huge glass doughnut that will whisk you into the air, hurtling high above the city for some dizzying views of the Sussex coast.

Canterbury tales

Canterbury is one of England’s finest cathedral cities and one of southern England’s top attractions. Its 1400-year-old Gothic cathedral is one of England’s oldest Christian buildings and part of a World Heritage Site. It’s a truly extraordinary place with an absorbing history and the site of English history’s most famous murder when Archbishop Thomas Becket was killed here in 1170. Aside from the cathedral, it’s also worth wandering the town’s narrow medieval alleyways, riverside gardens and ancient city walls to see what little delights and hidden gems you can uncover there.

Of castles and courts

The impossibly romantic moated Leeds castle, just east of Maidstone, is one of Britain’s most popular. During its 1000-plus years of history, it has been home to a who's who of medieval queens, most famously Henry VIII’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon. The castle was transformed from fortress to lavish palace over the centuries, and its last owner, the high-society hostess Lady Baillie, used it as a family home where she entertained the likes of Errol Flynn, Douglas Fairbanks and John F Kennedy.

Arrive here and car hire at Gatwick Airport is just the very beginning of your adventure in London and the UK.

Driving in and around London Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport is just off the M23 motorway, which runs north to the capital before becoming the A23 and the meeting the A3 South Circular. Driving time will vary depending in the time of day but be aware that London traffic can be heavy during morning and evening rush hours, so you should allow more time for your journey at those peak times.

If you’re driving in Central London between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, you’ll need to pay a congestion charge. To see which zones are covered by the charge, and for details on how to pay, visit the Transport for London website. Parking in the centre of London is a mixture of metered and car parks, free parking is at a minimum in most built-up areas.

If you’re heading for the south coast, the M23 and A23 run all the way to Brighton. Just north of the centre of Brighton, the A23 meets the A27 which runs west towards Chichester and Portsmouth, and east to Eastbourne and other towns along the East Sussex coast. To reach the ancient Cathedral city of Canterbury, take the M23 north to the M25, which encircles the capital, then head east, turning off on to the M26, then M20, A249 and M2.

Follow the same route to Leeds Castle, turning off the M20 when you see signs for the A20 at Junction 8. From Canterbury it’s a short drive north via the A28 to the revitalised resort of Margate with its cutting-edge Turner Contemporary art gallery, or the delightful seaside towns of East Kent.
