Gatwick to Crawley

What is the best way to get to the town of Crawley from the Gatwick Airport? Friends recommended the Hillside Inn and we would like to try it.

It isn't in Crawley itself, nearest station is 3 Bridges but it's a mile from the station.

The public transport options don't look too good and take about 3 times as long as a taxi would

I'd say it's at least two miles from 3Bridges Station, but there's always taxis waiting there, if you don't want to walk it. Otherwise the quickest and easiest way would be just to get a taxi from the airport .

If you don't want to bother with taxis, you could get a train from the airport to Horley (1 stop) which has a good selection of Chinese/Indian restaurants plus Ye Olde Six Bells pub which is about a 20 min walk from the train station, and does very good food.

Not sure where you got your info from Alanrow, but as somebody who lived in Crawley for 32 years up until 2 months ago, I can confirm that the Hillside Inn is in Crawley (albeit not in the 'town' - if this was what you was getting at).

The nearest station is Three Bridges (next stop from Gatwick Airport station) and then you can get a taxi from there for a 5 minute ride (walk will take 25 mins approx).

The Hillside is very good (in fact I have posted my own review). If going on Friday or Saturday you should book though,
