We will be staying in a cottage over the holiday season near Grantham. We are planning to spend Christmas Eve in London, Christmas Day back in our cottage and then drive to a hotel near Gatwick on the 26th (as we will be flying out of Gatwick on the 27th).
Are train services running Christmas Eve? Will we be able to get back to our cottage near Grantham if we spend the day in London? Would driving as opposed to taking the train into London on Christmas Eve be a total nightmare?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! This is my 3rd time to the UK, but never over the holiday season. Thank you!
