London Gatwick Airport, designed and built to take the excess air traffic away from London Heathrow, but is today a London airport in itself.

The second largest airport in the UK boasts good facilities.

I use Gatwick regularly, and if I am to fly out from the South terminal I always arrive very early, in fact extremely early for my flight. Why? To take advantage of all the facilities at the terminal.

The shopping centre within the terminal is brilliant. It boasts several designer clothes shops, w.h. smiths, coffee bars, a pub, restaurants and cafes, a burger king....and the list goes on.

The airport is clean, the toilets are regularly attended to and kept smart. Car parking is plentiful, but you have to allow around half an hour to travel from most car parks until you arrive in the airport lounge, just to be on the safe side, the free car park busses run frequently but are sometimes crowded.

Security is tight and the customs officers are polite, doing a difficult and delicate job.

It is easy to hail or order a cab.

There is a good viewing area from the duty free areas onto the airfield. The duty free area and shops are good.

The visual and audio systems for information are regularly updated and are correct.

This is a good airport.
