About Gatwick Airport
London Gatwick has the distinction of being the busiest single-runway airport in the world, the second largest in the UK, and the seventh busiest in the entire world. It's a close second behind the mammoth Heathrow airport, which is the only one of London's four airports that sits inside the M25 motorway. It is 35 miles south of London, and a quick commuter train ride from central London (approx. 30 minutes from Victoria Station).
The name Gatwick dates back to 1241, when rights to land in the area were deeded to one John de Gatwick. The airport began life in earnest in August 1930, when Ronald Walters licensed a private airfield, and began giving pleasure flights in his Avro 504s.
There is plenty of shopping available at Gatwick, and there are pubs, restaurants, and in the Gatwick area itself numerous accommodations and places to eat and drink. There is plenty of duty-free shopping, department-store type shopping at Harrods, and places to get books, games, fashion and beauty products, and much more.
There are two main terminals at Gatwick–the North and South terminals. Though not nearly as huge an airport as Heathrow, knowing as much as possible about where your check-in desk, customs, and other essentials are located ahead of time helps a lot. Also, there are special assistance services available for the handicapped, and shuttles to get you around the airport.
