    It’s too damn hot, and the gates so far. Consider bringing a change of shirts in your hand luggage, as you may get sweaty before even boarding. Awful airport

    Security is a mess give yourself time. North terminal has better food then South terminal. Express train is not worth it, since it takes only 30 minutes less and costs more than double.

    A relatively nice airport, but with the lack of a good free WiFi network doesn't sit anywhere near the top of international airports in my mind.

    Feels overcrowded, so many people packed into a relatively small terminal. Rather poor selection of eateries. That said traveling through, security checks, customs and baggage claim is pretty smooth

    Let's face it: Gatwick isn't the best place on earth, but they are improving it and the shops and restaurants are ok, if not, rather over-crowded...

    Duty free has all the branded counters - Chanel, Lancôme, La Mer, YSL. Great shopping here but Heathrow is still better. No Urban Decay products unfortunately.

    They have Gatwick Express. Gatwick Express is the fastest rail link between the airport and central London. Non-stop trains run to and from London Victoria every 15 minutes and take 30 minutes.

    Your tickets were cheaper than in Heathrow? Include the price of transport and the time to go there in your business case. If you are on north terminal, more fun guaranteed!
