How long from Gatwick to Euston Station?

Hi,

Can anyone advise? I have a friend coming from Canada and flying into Gatwick, then going straight to Euston to get a train to Liverpool. Do you know how long it would take to get to the train station? Do you think we should risk booking an advance train ticket, or not bother, incase the flight is delayed? thanks for your help

Your friend can take the First Capital Connect train from LGW to St Pancras domestic then walk to Euston from there.

The train journey shouldn't take more than 50 minutes, depending on time of day and day of the week, with the wander over to Euston no more than ten minutes if your pal is wheeling a bag behind her.

But if your friend is coming in from Gatwick early in the morning on a weekday, she'll have to contend with masses of commuters heading into the city, making the journey potentially a less than pleasant one. She can mitigate this by taking the Gatwick Express to Victoria then a Victoria line train to Euston, but again the Victoria line will be chockablock at morning peak hours as well.

Depending on when she arrives, your friend may face queues at passport control and a wait for her baggage as well; allow at least three hours to get from scheduled flight arrival to Euston, I'd say, perhaps a bit more to allow for leaves on the line or some such.

FCC don't seem to know if their station is called St Pancras Domestic or St Pancras International.

The timetable calls it International and the live departure board on the web site calls it Domestic.
