hi all. In our travels home from spain we fly in to Gatwick airport in london, but out of Heathrow. i've heard that this is somewhat common, but have no idea how to get from one airport to the next. any suggestions?
thank you,
alyssa

There is a frequent,direct Speedlink coach service between the two airports. It takes between 45 mins and 2 hours depending on the traffic. If your flights are all on the same airline, they will probably give you vouchers for the coach trip.

FYI
We've done this a couple of times on Speedlink, and didn't realize until the second trip that we were eligible for a voucher; we were not offered it until we asked.

When you arrive at the Speedlink terminal with your voucher, be sure to turn it in to the agent inside the terminal building. The Speedlink driver does not accept the voucher, only the ticket given by the agent. We have missed a flight because I didn't understand this, and there was a long queue waiting for the Speedlink bus.

There's no train/subway between Gatwick & Heathrow. As others have said, there's a regular coach service between the two. For timetables seeBR>www.gobycoach.com

Alyssa, the bus between LGW and LHR has a scheduled time of 1h10m and costs £12. If you really wanted to take the train, you could take the Gatwick Express to Victoria, the tube to Paddington and the Heathrow Express to Heathrow. Elapsed time would be about 1h35m and the cost would be £24.50. Or you could arrange for a car service (minicab) to transport you, which would cost about £60 for up to 3 people, including tip.
