My husband and I are looking at an alternative, and cheaper train route to Gatwick from Dover on a Friday afternoon in October. We do not want to go into London. I found this route; Dover Priory to Tonbridge, Tonbridge to Redhill, Redhill to Gatwick. Can anyone comment on how easy this would be? We will not have much for luggage (easily manageable) but I noticed that some of the times between arriving and leaving are very short (4 mins). Have you done this route? Is it easy and quick to change trains?
Thank you for all of your suggestions and information.
