From Gatwick Airport:
Gatwick Airport website:
Gatwick has two terminals, North and South linked by a free monorail (shuttle). Gatwick is actually located south of London, halfway between the city and Brighton on the coast, and is too far out to have an Underground connection. Railway & Road links at Gatwick are good though.
By Train: Southern railway/First Capital Connect
From Gatwick most travellers will take regular trains to central London, that is to say either one below:
1) The Southern Railways train to Victoria, reached in 30 minutes. To then reach the UCL
campus, take the Victoria line to Warren Street, Euston or King’s Cross Saint Pancras.
2) The First Capital Connect train to London Bridge in 30 minutes up to an hour. To then reach UCL campus, take the Northern line (bank branch) to King’s Cross Saint Pancras or Euston.
By Train: Gatwick Express
The heavily marketed ‘Gatwick Express’ service, which runs to Victoria, is similar as non-Express trains, and are faster than Southern, but much more expensive. However, at peak times (i.e. on the morning towards London and in the evening away from London) the Gatwick Express will be much less overcrowded than non ‘Express’ trains.
To reach the UCL campus from London Victoria, take the Victoria line to Warren Street, Euston or King’s Cross Saint Pancras.
