Fast and efficient. We took it to catch our flight back to Canada at Gatwick. Basically like many other trains we traveled while in the UK, but express direct to the airport. You just exit the train station and find your departure terminal and gate....More

While this is one of the best ways to get into London from the airport, there isn't enough space on the train for luggage. It does not make sense because it's a train service and people are flying in from other countries obviously carrying large...More
