We arrive in Gatwick from Vancouver at 9:30 and we head to Rome later that day at 17:30. So methinks that will give us about 4-5 hours once we account for customs on arrival and checking in again as we travel onward.
In a perfect world we'd like to park our bags (one carry on each) in an airport locker then walk from the airport to go get some fresh air on a nice enjoyable walk and then grab lunch in a nice local pub. Any suggestions on where to walk, where to eat?
Can we accomplish this by walking from the airport or do we need to grab a taxi first etc?
Please don't make us sit in the airport all this time :)
