  • *laugh* - Awesome! When you flying in?

    I fly into Gatwick, too. I plan on taking the Gatwick Express (prepurchased a rt voucher for $37 (USD)), which will whisk you from the airport to one of the tube stops and then take the tube over to the hotel.

    You'll have to bring a bottle or two of some good Port!

    Cheers,

    Jason
    • Flying in on 10 Dec 2004 13:35 (that's the arrival time)

      The guys on the london.pm mailing list told me *not* to take the express; they said the normal train to Victoria takes only 10 more minutes and is cheaper (8 pounds).
      • D'oh! Oh well ...

        I get in that morning (7am). I booked tickets to the Festive BBC Good Food Festival [festivebbc...show.co.uk], so I plan on doing that during the afternoon.

        Give me a ring when you get in - I got good recommendations [jamieoliver.com] for dinner that I'm looking forward to checking out.
        • I plan on walking a bit, during the afternoon. This will be my first time in London :-)

          I'll give you a ring :-)
      • The express has the advantage that it starts from Gatwick, so there is plenty of time to board it while it sits in the station. The normal trains come from Brighton, so you don't have that long to get on them and you'll have more "fun" getting luggage past the other passengers. Also you need to work out whether you're looking at train heading to Victoria or London Bridge (the Express only goes to Victoria). But, yes, they are cheaper, and if you know what you're doing no more hassle than the Express. Althou

        • The thing that concerns me the most is getting back... :-) My flight back to Portugal is on Monday, at 8:15, IIRC... I'll probably have to get up at 6 or something... or even earlier... ;-(
