Gatwick Airport to Bournemouth transport.
 
Hello Everyone,<BR><BR>We will be visiting London &amp; Bournemouth during May 2003. Our flight arrives at Gatwick at around 11:00pm. Does anyone know if there is some sort of transport (rail, bus, etc) from Gatwick to Bournemouth around that hour? I checked www.rail.co.uk, but I didn't see anything after 10:15pm.<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR>Suhas

Check www.thetrainline.com . This site will answer all of your questions. There are many connections to Bournemouth.

I think your choices are, a) stay at a Gatwick hotel overnight and take a train in the morning or b) arrange a car service to take you to Bournemouth that night. I think the latter would cost well over GBP100 -- but then so would the first, probably.

OOps sorry...I didnt notice the prolonged stop on the train schedule. Best to stay at a gatwick hotel upon arrival...take a cab its usually cheaper than waiting for the hotel transport. Could you get an earlier flight?

Just thought I'd bring your thread up since its dropped off where it will not get attention. Any answers out there?
