The London Gatwick train station is getting a £150 million upgrade and there will be changes in the number of trains which operate between Gatwick Airport and London Victoria starting 17 May.
So if you are arriving to London via Gatwick Airport you should expect a lower number of trains, thus possible longer waiting times for the next train to central London.
The main changes include:
- No off-peak Southern services will run between Brighton and London Victoria. Passengers wanting to use this route outside of peak hours can travel on the Gatwick Express instead. Southern’s Super Off-Peak and Kids for £2 fares will be eligible on these services, and Gatwick Express tickets between London Victoria and Brighton will be charged at the lower Southern fare.
- Gatwick Express services will remain the same in morning and evening peaks. However, outside of these times, two fewer trains an hour will run — although those that do run will be formed of more carriages, to provide extra capacity.
