Gatwick Airport information

Gatwick Airport Parking logos

Gatwick Airport, also known as London Gatwick Airport, in is in the south-east of England, approx. 30 miles south of Central London and around 3 miles north of the town of Crawley.

Opening as an aerodrome in the late 1920s, it has been used by commercial travellers since 1933 and has two terminals. By number of passengers it is currently the second-busiest UK airport and the eight-busiest in Europe. In 2016, 43.1 million passengers passed through the airport.

The airport has been owned and operated by Gatwick Airport Limited since 2009. The airline with the most flights from Gatwick Airport is currently EasyJet, but there are many others, the larger ones include including Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Thompson Airways and Thomas Cook Airways.

How to Get to Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport is linked directly to the M23 at Junction 9 and to the A23 London-Brighton road and is just a ten-minute drive from the M25

If you use a satnav the postcodes for Gatwick are

RH6 0NP for the South Terminal

RH6 0PJ for the North Terminal

To get between the airport terminals, you just need to take the shuttle service. It runs 24 hours a day, every day, running between the two terminals every few minutes and with a journey time of just two minutes its very quick.

Car Parking Options at Gatwick Airport

There are many options for parking services at Gatwick Airport, both on-airport and off-airport as well as meet and greet parking.

On-Airport Parking at Gatwick Airport

There are several on-airport parking options to choose from the Short Stay Multi-storeys to one of the three Long stay car Parks run by Gatwick Airport and they all have the Park Mark accreditation for safer parking and they all run a free transfer coach from the car park into the terminal.

Long Stay Gatwick Parking

There is Long Stay South car park, not to be confused with Long Stay North car park. Both these car parks are served by a free shuttle bus and are self-park where you keep your keys. There is also The Summer Special Car Park, which currently transfers only to the North Terminal, but you will need to leave your keys at this one.

Short Stay Car Parks Gatwick Airport

There are six Short Stay Multi-storey car parks, but they are at a premium price and are likely to be used for shorter stays.

Off-Airport Parking near Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport is well served with approved off-airport park and ride car parks including APH, Purple Parking Gatwick and Cophall Parking. These car parks will require you to leave your car keys. Simply drop your car off and hop on the transfer bus for a quick journey to Gatwick taking approx. 10 minutes.

Meet and Greet at Gatwick Airport

Again, there are quite a few options here. For Meet and Greet parking operators who have been approved not only by the airport, but by trading standards too, you can choose from companies like I Love Meet and Greet and Help-me-park who will meet you outside your departure terminal, or ACE Meet and Greet who meet in the adjacent short-term car parks. .

This type of parking can be very helpful if you have mobility issues, as its the nearest you can get to park by the airport terminal building and its also great if you have bulky items such as skis and golf clubs or lots of luggage, young children with pushchairs etc.

Hotels with parking at Gatwick Airport

At Gatwick, you have the luxury of hotels attached by an indoor walkway to your departure terminal. For instance, there is the Hilton Hotel at Gatwick South Terminal and the Sofitel Hotel at Gatwick North terminal. Both these hotels come with parking packages for maximum convenience.

If you are happy to stay a little further out, the rates go down. Why not try the Holiday Inn Gatwick close to North terminal, the traditional style Copthorne London Gatwick hotel built around a 16th century farmhouse just a 10 minute transfer away, or the modern Sandman Signature Hotel also 10 minutes away with their recently refurbished rooms and public areas. The choices don't stop either as there as there are many more and most will be available with a parking package making it the smart choice for those early flights or late returns.

Gatwick Airport Departure Lounge

At both North and South terminals there is a good choice of cafes and restaurants to suit most tastes, like Yo!, Nando’s, Giraffe, Wagamama and Costa to name but a few. Bars include Wetherspoons and Union Jacks Bar by Jamie Oliver.

If you like to indulge in some duty-free shopping, as well as the World Duty Free you can find many of your favourite stores such as Michael Kors, Cath Kidston, Fatface, Lacoste, Snow + Rock, Ted Baker, Superdry, just a few of many and of course the must have news-agents and Beauty/Pharmacy store.

When you arrive at the airport you can enjoy 90 minutes free Wi-Fi and if you want to be online for longer, then high speed wi-fi is provided at the airport by Boingo Hotspot for a fee.

If you like to have a cigarette before your flight, you may want to note that you can only smoke outside the terminal buildings in the clearly marked designated zones. That means once you've passed through security, there there's no smoking at all, even if for passengers connecting from an international to international flight.

If you need special assistance at Gatwick Airport, they recommend you contact your airline at least 48 hours before you are due to fly to make sure you can book the specific mobility services you need to get on your flight in time. Bear in mind you may need to inform your airline of any mobility items you need to have on the flight with you, especially larger items like wheelchairs or mobility scooters.

Gatwick Airport Lounge

For an escape from the hustle and bustle and a comfortable start to your journey, you can also book an executive lounge. These can be used by any passengers flying out of Gatwick Airport regardless of the airline you are flying with and what class your ticket is.

There are a few lounges to choose from depending which terminal you are flying from. At the North Terminal, there is the No:1 Lounge, as well as the more intimate My Lounge and the Aspire Lounge, whereas at the South Terminal you can enjoy the No:1 Lounge.

Whilst you are enjoying the peace and comfort, you can enjoy complementary drinks from the bar including soft drinks, beers, wines and spirits as well as hot beverages and hot and cold snacks from the pantry table.

APH Gatwick

Professional and efficient parking service from both FHR and APH. I have used all the main car park operators at Gatwick and Heathrow, including meet and greet, and APH is certainly one I would recommend, and use again.

Cophall Parking Gatwick

By far the lowest price I was able to find online. The process was very easy to navigate and was done quickly. Communication was timely and covered all the bases leaving no concerns prior to arrival. Upon arrival the staff we very friendly and helpful. Upon return, I followed the directions provided on the card that was provided when we dropped off our car. The van arrived on time and took us back to the car park. The drop-off and pick up process was very quick and efficient, probably the best I've experienced. I would highly recommend this facility and will be using them again when flying out of Gatwick. I will also be checking to see if they have locations at other airports.

APH Gatwick - Saver Product

Booked through a cashback website so had a good deal. Hassle-free booking and checking car in with just a short bus ride to the airport. On returning had to wait for a second bus (others a 3rd) but I guess out of FHR's control; picking up the car keys only took minutes. Facility is new so clean and well laid out.

I Love Meet & Greet - Hilton Package

Generally the service was efficient however the instructions for returning the car to us were far from clear and it took 3 phone calls for clarification before we were successful. This was frustrating and delayed us getting away from the airport. Car was fine and returned in good order though.

APH Gatwick - Saver Product

I haven't used park & ride for years but am very impressed with the efficiency that APH parking provided, as well as great value for money. Easy instructions to the parking area, very efficient employees to take your details, even though there was a small queue it was dealt with very quickly. Bus arrived within 5 minutes of waiting and took us straight to the terminal, on return we text to say we had arrived and received as nice welcome back message, we didn't wait long for the bus and when we arrived at the parking area I was worried that at 3am there wouldn't be enough staff to deal with the packed bus but there were 3 employees on the desk and it again the queue was dealt with super fast, they even provided instructions to get onto the M25 as the junction was shut. Well impressed with my experience and would totally use this service again.

Bubble Valet Parking - Eco Meet & Greet

Of all the Meet & Greet companies I've used over the years "I Love Meet & Greet" provided the best service both when we "dropped" the car off before departure and when "collecting" upon our return. All interaction was polite and courteous but also so punctual. No waiting for someone to collect our car, or to return it. I'll use them again.
