About London Gatwick Airport
Gatwick Airport, located some 28 miles south of Central London, is Europe's busiest airport for point-to-point flights, and leads the world as the most used single-use runway. Gatwick also was the world's first airport to boast a direct railroad link, and was one of the first to use pier-based, enclosed terminals, which allowed passengers to avoid wet weather for most of the embarking process.
The name of this airport actually dates back to 1241, where it was the name of the manor formerly situated here and owned by the De Gatwick family. Anglo-Saxon derivatives of "gat", meaning "goat," and "wic," meaning "dairy farm," loosely translate to "goat farm." In 1890, the land was sold to the newly minted Gatwick Race Course Company, who, in the following year, developed a racecourse which was adjacent to the London-Brighton railway. The land changed use in the late 1920s, and, in 1930, an aerodrome was licensed for use.
Local attractions near Gatwick Airport include the Archway Theatre in Horley; The Hawth in Crawley, which offers a mixture of arts in its venues; the Crawley Museum Centre; the Lingfield Park Racecourse, located in the Surrey countryside; and, for aviation buffs, the Gatwick Aviation Museum, showcasing a fine collection of British aircraft.
At Gatwick, travellers will find an assortment of restaurants and world-class shopping experiences on either side of security control.
