Hi Ella

There's a really good train connection from Gatwick to London called the Gatwick express - the trains are really nice and new and clean (on the whole) and as it says it's an express service, I think it takes about 20 mins to London from Gatwick and only stops once or twice.

I have used it before but only once - when I was in Acton last week for my FDFC one of the girls came from Crawlay and caught the Gatwick Express there and back and managed to get a seat on every journey, and for a train anywhere between London and Brighton at rush hour, that's a minor miracle!!!

Gatwick Train station is within the Airport and well signposted, then you'll need to use the underground to get to Olympia

Hi Ella

Apparently, there is a train from Gatwick straight through to Olympia! If this is not going at the right time for you, I would definitely recommend the Gatwick Express, Trinity's right. (Going on Monday so I can't meet you, shame).

Kim's right - I've posted the Olympia website below and the bit underneath is a direct quote from their 'travel' page - it doesn't say what time the trains go :|
