Gatwick is best known for having the second largest and busiest airport in the United Kingdom. Another interesting fact is that the city hides a rich history behind the walls of its numerous castles. Holidays in Gatwick offer a trip back in time to the Norman Conquest, historical experiences on board a steam train and enchanted forests.
Located in the GMT time zone, Gatwick can be visited the entire year. The most suitable time to spend your holidays in Gatwick is from spring to summer, when temperatures reach as high as 22°C. However, as Gatwick experiences mild temperatures most of the year, the low season is an excellent time to enjoy the region without the crowds. Gatwick Airport is well connected with most of the country, so getting there by plane is easiest. Holidaymakers can also arrive by train or by bus.
A few minutes away from the Gatwick Airport is Hever Castle, one of the most imposing castles of the area and the place where Henry the Eighth's wife spent her childhood. The castle is open to the public and can be visited at any time; visitors can even book a room here. Now a National Trust property, the gardens at Nymans estate host a variety of flora, offering beautiful walks through the lush grounds during your holidays in Gatwick.
Children will enjoy discovering the fantasy world of their most beloved character, Winnie the Pooh, in Ashdown Forest. Located along the High Weald nature preserve, Ashdown Forest has something for the whole family; its open heathlands are perfect for walking while admiring breathtaking landscapes. Take a fun ride on a steam train at the Bluebell Railway, a preserved historical line. For more active holidaymakers, there is a wide variety of activities in the area, from cycling to horse riding, golf or rock climbing.
