Terminal Information – Arriving
Flights from Inverness generally land at Gatwick Airport's North Terminal. The airport's train station is in the South Terminal, so if you're planning on taking a train into the city you will need to catch the free inter-terminal shuttle first. The Gatwick Express offers the fastest route into the city, taking half an hour to reach London Victoria. Single tickets cost £19.90* if you buy them at the ticket office on the day, but are often cheaper if you reserve them in advance. Southern and Thameslink trains also run between the airport and the city. Tickets are cheaper but journey times are slower. If you prefer to take the bus you can hop on the local MetroBus, or reserve a seat on one of the coaches. National Express and easyBus both serve the airport. There's a taxi rank outside the airport, but this is quite an expensive way of travelling: expect to pay at least £90* for the journey into Central London. If you prefer to drive yourself you'll find car hire desks in both terminals. Compare car hire at Skyscanner now.

The weather is a lot warmer, with an average summer temperature of 19°C and an average winter temperature of 7°C. Scottish banknotes are notoriously hard to spend in London. We recommend visiting the cash machine once you arrive at Gatwick Airport, or sticking to your debit card for the duration of your stay.
