Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

Gatwick Express is a rail passenger express that travels between London Victoria, Brighton in South East England and Gatwick Airport. The service began way back in 1984 and was initially operated by British Rail. After privatization in 1996, National Express bought the franchise. In 2008, however, the Gatwick Express merged into the Southern train operating company, and as a result, it ceased to exist as an independent franchise. Recently, in July of 2015, Gatwick Express along with Southern merged into a single entity called Govia Thameslink Railway. The Gatwick Airport is the second busiest in Britains, and can easily be reached from the city center of London by train.
