EasyJet Terminal in Gatwick

Would someone kindly confirm which Terminal (North or South) Easyjet uses in Gatwick for a LGW to VCE flight?
As well, which Terminal does the National Express Coach (fr LHR) stops at?
Thank you!

I arrived at the south terminal last week on an EasyJet flight from Geneva.

As soon as I relieved my impecunious state at the Barclay's ATM I continued to the Victoria Express.

So I don't know how to get to Heathrow.
But there are plenty of good signs.
And anyone local will aim you in the right direction.

The National Express stops at both terminals. I don't know which one I landed at when I used EasyJet, but the signage was easy to follow to get to the National Express, and I took it to Heathrow. After picking me up, the bus then stopped at the other terminal to pick up more people.

Most times of the day, you are requested to buy your ticket inside. I was taking the bus so late that I had to buy it from the driver, and he griped because I gave him a 20-pound-note for the 17-pound ride. He refused to take a 50-pound note from a Spanish lady.

Wow. And as I went to the Victoria Express I actually saw signs saying you could may buy your ticket on the train. There are agents and machines near the escalators to and from the platforms, but the train conductor is armed with the right equipment. I actually bought my ticket on the platform.

But then I noticed that at the London bus stops the signs said buy before boarding.

Fortunately for me, there was a convenient little shop that doubled as a exchange clip joint and London transit ticket office. Day cards both bus and tube were readily available.

While riding, I saw a couple of passengers buy from the driver, but they had almost the exact change.

I guess the old way of having a driver and a ticket taker/seller on the bus has gone the way of the dodo bird.

Some of the old ticket guys were funny as could be. I remember boarding bus #9 a few years ago and asking the ticket seller if the bus went close to St. Paul's. His answer,
"Blimey guvner, if we went any closer we would be in the bloomin fount. Then we would all be baptized."

EasyJet definitely uses the South Terminal.

Easyjet LGW to VCE is from the South Terminal.

There is a quick monorail trip connecting the two terminals and everything is well signed.

I don't know what trip you are putting together but are you aware that BMI fly from LHR to VCE which may save you the time and cost of travelling between LHR and LGW?
