gatwick Express - discount

by TwinkleOz


Besides the Easyjet website, where either can I get a bigger discount for train travel on the Gatwick Express. 2 ppl travelling.

Thanks for your help!

Re: gatwick Express - discount

by leics

Easyjet offer tickets for 15.20, normal fare is 16.90GBP.

I am not aware of any other discounted tickets for the Gatick Express.

Why not just get the ordinary train from Gatwick to Paddington? It takes a little longer, but it's much cheaper at 8.90 per person. will give you train times and fares.

Or, even cheaper, take the bus. National Express at 7.90, Easybus from 2GBP. Info and links for all transport here:

From Gatwick you have trains into London. First Capital Connect operate services to/from London St Pancras, Farringdon, City Thameslink, Blackfriars and London Bridge.
Southern provide alternative fares and services to/from London Victoria.

Getting to VICTORIA station on SOUTHERN costs about £7 one way. And does not take much longer than the dedicated Express train. Look at times / prices etc at :

if travelling for sightseeing, then look at 2 for 1 deal by rail operators - this is on Southern Railway site :

I agree - the best way to save money is not to use Gatwick Express. Instead use one of the 'ordinary' Southern trains, which take only 10 minutes longer to get to Victoria or the alternative trains and/or routes to London Bridge or Blackfriars as mentioned above, depending on the final destination.

Hi All

Thank you for your advice.

Our final destination is Barons Court.

As the other vt'ers have said its far cheaper to travel with southern into Victoria & if you are travelling on to Barons court on the tube you can ask for a travelcard to cover you from gatwick incl zones 1-6 that way you can continue to use public transport for the rest of the day & should not be too much more expensive.

Shop until you drop! Go to Piccadilly Circus or Oxfordstreet. You can also find nice stuff (a lot of music, art, clothes, jewels) at Camden town.

Also go sightseeing! Buckingham Palace, The tower of London, The horseguards, London Bridge and Houses of Parliament are all waiting for you!

Enjoy the nightlife and the theaters and musea! Going out at night!

Why Dont We Do It in the Road?

by rickyvilla81

Silly title. Abbey Road is where the Beatles recorded most of their albums (bar Let It Be) under the watchful eye of George Martin, at the EMI studios (Studio 2 to be exact). For their final album, recorded here because here they "could be musicians, and nothing more", they famously were photographed in the street outside, walking across the zebra-crossing (crosswalk to you in the US!). Paul was barefoot, silly Paul. Of course everyone started to say that Paul was dead, and had been since 1966, having been replaced by a double. The signs were all there in the way that the other Beatles dressed, some of the song lyrics, and the license plate on the VW Beetle (ironic!) that said "28 IF" - Beatle Paul, age 28 IF he'd lived. Codswallop of course, since he was 27, and very alive. All of ahich makes me say - he was 27!!! The Beatles last album! Look how much he'd done by then! I'm 27. I've put on a play in Provence and performed in the British Museum. Paul McCartney on the other hand is a genius. Remarkable.

By the way you can get to Abbey Road by going to St. Johns Wood. Take a photo of the crosswalk, man!

Historical person

The monument of Winston Churchill is in the opposite side of the street from the Houses of Parliament. This person had very important role in the history of United Kingdom and in the history of Europe.

Respectful with your parent`s friends or boyfriend


In England for most of guys what moms think is very important and stronge. They follow the rules and have a lot of respect for their parents. They could get offended if you dont understand how important and stronge is for them their parents opinions. Rlationship between sun and mom is really stronge and try to interfer in it could be really dangerous. This is hard to explain or understand because you never imagine this in a first world country. They seem to be independent, and they are but not emocionally or economically(just physically). They dont even realise this, but all english girls know it or people who are older than 25. (not everyone is the same)English people are really polite and too formal in the way the act and think. Everything has to be right and under the rules This is my perception after 10 months in a relationship with an english guy, spend 2 months in England and meeting lots of friends over there. They have such an amazing culture..I will come back there soon. I want to learn more.

Yes, London is unique when it comes down to culture. There's nothing you couldn't do in London. Listen to people saying things like 'I'm afraid we don't have toilets'. Watch other people throwing up while walking. See a great play for just a fiver. Shout, take your clothes off, have a baby, whatever - nobody will give a mick.
