Gatwick airport is the second most busy airport in the UK right after the Heathrow, another airport in London. Located about 30 miles south of central London, Gatwick primarily serves the London area but has many bus lines going to and from there to take passengers to other destinations around the UK. The rail line also connects Gatwick to central London for people looking to go directly into the city. Gatwick opened as an aerodrome in the 1920’s and has served as a hub for commercial flights since the 1930’s. If you’re traveling to London soon and are looking for a place to stay near Gatwick so you can catch an early morning or late night flight, check out the following list of Airbnb vacation rentals and you won’t have to worry about time!

1. A room 10 minutes away from Gatwick South Terminal (from USD 47)

Our first option is a spacious double bedroom with private bathroom located just a short walk away from Gatwick’s South Terminal. It takes more time to walk from baggage claim to outside than it does to walk from this property to the airport! There is a free shuttle going to and from the North Terminal making this a great option for people looking to stay a night close to the airport to catch an early morning flight. Coffee and tea are offered for free but breakfast is not. If you have a car there is parking available for 4 pounds. There is a train station nearby which provides a 30-minute ride to central London.

9. The closest Airbnb to Gatwick (from USD 50)

Possibly the closest Airbnb you can find without actually having to be at the airport itself! Only 2 minutes from the airport, this is a great option for guests catching early flights or people working on the flight crew. It’s a one-minute drive to the terminal or, if you’re going the other way, 30 minutes to central London. The house brims with Edwardian features and is brightly lit during the daytime. Supermarkets and pubs are located nearby as well as a legendary 16th-century inn called “The Six Bells”. The local Wetherspoons Pubs serve hot meals and breakfast for cheap. High-speed WiFi is available and so is tea and coffee.
