the best way to get to ashby de la zouch from Gatwick

Hi all

I am trying to figure out which is the best way to go to Ashby de la zouch form London Gatwick airport.I found that the nearest train station is Burton-upon-Trent and from there I was thinking to take a taxi (13km), but I don't know if it is possible.

any suggestions?

thank you in advance

There is a frequent bus service from Burton to Ashby

which will be much cheaper than a taxi.

Alternatively, you might consider Leicester since Burton is slightly awkward to get to from London. There are regular buses from Leicester but the bus station is on the other side of town to the rail station.

Could you get a flight to East Midlands or Birmingham both of which would be better options than Gatwick

thank you for your answers.much appreciated. the easiest and probably the cheapest way to get to England from Athens is only to fly to gatwick.no other direct flight.for example the flight form Athens to EMA - Nottingham UK - East Midlands cost about 8 to 10 times compared to the flight to Gatwick.furthermore I searched for a flight from gatwick to the nearest airport to EMA but much trouble for nothing.

Personally I would check out trains to Loughborough, about 11 miles from Ashby, since the connections are easier in London (single change at St Pancras - it's the same train as Leicester just one stop further) and there is a direct bus from Loughborough to Ashby:

I live in Ashby so if I can help further give me a shout!

Whenever I go to London, Tamworth every time. Fast train (from Euston) is an hour and 2 minutes and about £25 if booked in lots of advance and not during rush hour/peak times. 15 minute drive / taxi ride to Ashby High Street - voila!
