About Gatwick Express

Gatwick Express is a frequent non-stop rail service in the UK that connects London's Victoria station to Gatwick Airport before continuing on to the bustling coastal city of Brighton. This service runs almost every 15-30 minutes and is operated by Govia Thameslink Railway as a profit-making venture since the privatization of the UK rail network in the 1990s.

Trains running under the Gatwick Express banner travel directly between Victoria and Gatwick Airport railway station, with additional stops past the airport at Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Hassocks, and Preston Park on a half-hourly schedule.

The trains offer standard, non-reserved seating, first-class compartments, extra luggage storage spaces, and free WiFi.

The easiest way to get cheap train tickets is to use Wanderu. As an official partner of Gatwick Express, Wanderu provides reliable ticketing information and helps passengers find the best deals on Gatwick Express fares.

Gatwick Express Train Guide & FAQs

Yes, Gatwick Express offers WiFi on their trains. Although most trips with Gatwick Express will have WiFi as advertised, some trains might not come equipped with WiFi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Gatwick Express WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Gatwick Express trains. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a USB power adapter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since Gatwick Express might sometimes use replacement train vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.
