What is the fastest most budget friendly and kid friendly way to get to the hotel from gatwick airport? Is there any shuttle? Tube station? Bus?
I agree with the previous answers, the Thameslink train to Blackfriars station is the best option. Once getting off at Blackfriars, exit through the south side of the station, so you will be a few steps from the hotel.
We took the tube to heathrow. The front desk was very helpful instructing us. Call them and ask or send them an email. Good luck and have a blast.
I agree you should get the train to London Blackfriars. If you leave Blackfriars station from the exit south of the river (it has a North and South exit) it is a short walk to the hotel. Gatwick airport is a long way from central London and the hotel but it is an easy journey by train.To get around London from your hotel is also really easy, try walking as you can easily get to the central attractions like Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden or the hotel is very close to Southwark tube station if you prefer. The hotel staff will advise you on bus routes if need be. Enjoy your stay!
the Thameslink train to Blackfriars station is the best way to get there and very comfortable too. it will take about an hour.
