Gatwick International Airport is the second largest airport in London and the whole of the United Kingdom of Great Britain after Heathrow in terms of size and passenger traffic. More than 34 million passengers each year use this air gate to get to one of the most popular cities on the planet. Take more time to visit it to see not only the famous Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and the Tower, but also not less remarkable sights outside the city - the mysterious Stonehenge, the oldest universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the resort town of Bath and the royal residence in Windsor. The Bookingcar.su website, which presents the best offers of rental companies, will help you to make all these trips with a rented car.
In 1930, on the site of the Gatwick estate, the Surrey Aero Club was organized, which, with the approval of the Ministry of Aviation, in 1936 turned into an air terminal with regular passenger flights. The current airport complex has only one runway and specializes in charter flights. It consists of two terminals - north and south, which provide passengers with everything they need for a comfortable stay: numerous restaurants and cafes, an extensive duty-free zone, slot machines and a playground for children, a beauty salon and several prayer rooms for followers of different faiths. If you wait longer for your flight, travelers can relax at one of the nearby hotels.
The fastest way to get to the central station of the capital is by express, which leaves every 15 minutes from the lower level of the South Terminal from 5 am to midnight. A free shuttle bus runs regularly between the terminals. Buses are also waiting at the exit from the arrivals hall, running every hour. They connect the airport not only to London, but also to other major cities. It is more comfortable, however, and much more expensive to get to the booked hotel by a licensed taxi.
