I alighted my train ( from Hove) on Platform 19 at around 1 pm on Sat 14th July. I was on route to Penrith with a train connection at Euston. I noticed a lady who was using a stick and trying to pull her very...More
This place is amazing. It reminded us of Grand Central Station in New York. There is a constant buzz in the air with people moving quickly about. There are a number of commercial merchants in the station along with food vendors. We had a direct...More
This area is undergoing an amazing regeneration at the moment and you can see lots of scaffolding being erected everywhere: I am sure in several months this place will look amazing as it tries to separate the madness from inside the station, where the trains...More
This station now looks very dated having last been upgraded around 30 years ago. The station has few facilities and not much in the way of shops or cafes unless you head to the equally dated shopping centre attached to it. It is also in...More

Dreadful service. Food was abysmal. Had to wait 20 Minutes because the first vegetarian breakfast was in fact a very porky sausage and bacon.The veggie replacement finally arrived with two very raw quorn sausages and a tiny bit of scrambled egg and a very minute...More
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

First best advice I received as I arrived was follow the path lines (colored painted stripes) on the floor. This was my first time I really traveled much at all on public transport, and all the trains, buses, etc took a lot of learning for this first timer. So, when in doubt, I was never ashamed to ask for help; sometimes three times, and took the "two out of three" approach. Which was very useful as some people gave me wrong advice. Before you walk a long distance, ask again, and again.

From Victoria Station the Gatwick Express can be entered from street level (no stairs). The elevator takes you down to the platform. Ride the train to Gatwick Airport and there you can exit the airport to street level (no stairs). Hope this helps! Have a great trip!
