For my next trip to the UK, I'm headed straight to Eastbourne from Heathrow for a few nights at the coast (accommodation booked) then back to London for a few days before heading home. Could you tell me whether my transportation plan makes sense or if there are more efficient options available? Thanks in advance.
- Tues Sept 18, arrive Heathrow Terminal 3 at 720 am
- National Express coach from Heathrow Terminal 3 to Gatwick South Terminal (about 1.5 hours) - planning to prepurchase a refundable/changeable ticket for GBP27 at the nat express website
- Train from Gatwick South Terminal to Eastbourne, about an hour, direct - planning to buy an anytime walkup ticket on arrival for GBP 16.50 rather than an advance restricted ticket in case there are flight delays or long queues at pp control
- If all goes well, I should arrive to my accommodation by 1 pm.
Advice welcome - Thanks again.
