Getting off the airplane and into London was efficient and smooth using this train. The only problem I had was to figure out that the ticket lets you in directly to the platform: you just have to present the ticket to the guard. At first i thought it was a voucher one had to use to redeem an actual ticket; indeed mine was just a print-out, whereaseveryone was scanning their ticket. I am glad i asked the guard who let me in.
Great way to get to London from Gatwick! In one hour we were at the St. Pancras Station, just a 10 minute walk from our flat in Cartwright Gardens, in Bloomsbury. From St. Pancras International, you can catch a train to Paris or Brussels. And from King's Cross station, which is right beside St. Pancras, you can catch a train to anywhere in the UK
Bloomsbury contains the University of London and University College London, and is the cultural centre of central London.
