Arriving in London

There are plenty of useful amenities for incoming international travellers, such as bureau de change counters, cash machines and free WiFi, and you’ll be able to take advantage of both the duty-free shopping, as well as the numerous eateries within either of these airports’ terminals.

Taking a taxi from Gatwick or Heathrow will run you from 80-100GBP ($138-173), which is a pricey way to travel, and most passengers choose to take public transport via the buses or trains, or book a private airport transfer online.
