Early Morning, Late Night and Public Holiday Flights
The British are generally quite traditional when it comes to public holidays (particularly big ones like Christmas and New Year) and the public transport services listed above may sometimes also take the day off. Likewise, if you need to get to Gatwick for an early morning flight public transport may not be open in time.
There are however other options available.
A taxi from Gatwick to or from central London is reasonably expensive and should be used as a last resort. However Hotel Link and dot to dot as well as other similar companies do offer services on public holidays and early mornings.
