The London Heathrow is one of the busiest and biggest airports in Europe. The airport has five terminals and each terminal serves over a 100 destinations across the world. The terminal 5 is located to the west end of the airport and three satellite buildings 5A, 5B and 5C. The three buildings together have 66 gates. 5A is the main terminal building and all three buildings are connected by transit trains.
The Gatwick airport is the second busiest airport in London and handles about 35 million passengers every year. It is located in West Sussex and is 30 miles away from Central London. The distance from the Heathrow to Gatwick is about 44 miles. Taxis, minicabs, coaches and rail links connect the two airports regularly.
The National Express coach connects the Heathrow to Gatwick in about 75 minutes. The service runs all days of the week at a frequency of 15 minutes. The Heathrow is connected to Gatwick by two railway links. The first option would be to take the Heathrow Express or the Piccadilly tube line to Central London.
The Victoria station in Central London offers the Gatwick Express service that takes you to the Gatwick airport in just 30 minutes. The second option would be to take the 285 bus from the central bus station to Feltam. Gatwick can be accessed easily from Feltham by changing lines at the Clapham Junction. While using the public transport can be cheaper than hiring a taxi or a minicab from Heathrow to Gatwick, it is a very tiresome task and demands a lot of patience.
Taxis can be directly hired outside the terminal building of the airport. Taxis are available even during the late hours of the night. If you pre book a minicab, the driver will be waiting for you at the arrivals lounge of the terminal 5. Taxis and minicabs make your airport transfer quick and easy. If you are travelling with heavy luggage and small children public transport can leave you very exhausted. In such cases taxis and minicabs are the best option to travel from the terminal 5 of Heathrow to Gatwick.
