Closing time for security gates at Gatwick South

I have an early morning flight on Friday and just have cabin baggage so was thinking of getting to Gatwick the night before and staying there overnight. I was wondering when the security gates close and if they will let me through security the night before so I can sleep in the more comfy areas inside the terminal, rather than out in the waiting hall by all the check-in desks. I have checked-in online so all I need to do is go through security.

Anyone know if they allow people through security the night before a flight? And if so, when the security gates close?

Thanks

Why not try "sleepinginairports"?

You won't be allowed to stay airside overnight.

Ok, cheers for the info.

I had a look at "sleepinginairports" and everyone said they just slept landside but didn't mention not being allowed to sleep airside so I was just wondering if it was possible.

Thanks for your help!
