How to get to Gatwick airport from Bath

Hi there,

We are spending a weekend in Bath and on Tuesday will be flying out from Gatwick airport at 14:30. What is the best way to get to the airport? is it a good idea to book a hotel at the airport on Monday night and catch a late bus/train to Gatwick? this would allow us to make the most of the stay and have some peace of mind that we will catch the plane on time.

Any other suggestion?

Many thanks

By bus you are going to have to leave nastily early - so go the evening before

Train's a bit more civilised - you can leave at a reasonable hour and still arrive before midday - change at Reading.

+1 for train.

There are two trains a hour from Bath Spa to Reading, and an hourly direct train from Reading to Gatwick Airport.

Reading Station has recently been rebuilt and there is now lift access to all platforms - use the lifts if you have heavy luggage. .

I always go by train: you could leave Bath as late as 09:13 and still be in plenty of time.

Tickets are more expensive before 09:00

Which terminal are you leaving from ?
