Cheapest way to get from Marble Arch to Gatwick

Hi Folks, just wondering what that cheapest method of getting from Marble Arch to Gatwick airport on a Sunday around 11am? We'll only have a small bag with us so we won't have the problem of dragging lots of luggage with us.

Thanks :o)

Walk down to Victoria (or get a bus in Park Lane) and get a Southerrn Train to Gatwick

When I used to do this, I would walk to Bond Street and take the Jubilee Line to London Bridge then First Capital Connect train to Gatwick. Not much in it either way in time or cost

To be pendantic , how about the 74 bus from Marble Arch to West Brompton if you can pick up a £2 fare on easyBus to Gatwick from there.

I don't think I've ever seen the headline EasyBus £2 actually be offered in real life, or if it is, you probably need to book several months in advance. The usual EasyBus tickets are around £6 to £10. Which is the same cost as the National Express coaches that go from London Victoria, which is definitely walkable from Marble Arch.

I guess whether you take the train, the Easybus or the National Express, the difference is going to be a few pounds only.

The Southern train from London Bridge is cheaper than the First Capital Connect.

Cheaper still are advance singles on Southern from Victoria to Gatwick - buy from Southern's own website and they start at £3.70

Still plenty at that price on 15 May for example - they don't sell out that quick
