Gatwick Airport to Bournemouth transport.

Hello Everyone,

We will be visiting London & 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.

Thanks,
Suhas

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?

Hello,

Thanks everyone for their replies so far...
Unfortunately, our flight to London has already been booked. It arrives Gatwick at approx. 10:30pm.

I will keep on searching the web for some more info. on buses, trains, etc. I will let everyone know if I find anything.

Thanks again.
Suhas
