Two good friends of mine will be in London for a couple days and are staying in Central London. They have a flight to catch out of Gatwick on Saturday morning. I was wondering what's the best way to get to Gatwick from Central London? The Gatwick Express looks good, but it's bloody expensive for a 30 minute journey. How about Thameslink? Can't find any price info on Thameslink.
They are flying Ryanair (for shame) out of Gatwick. Ryanair flies out of the South Terminal correct?

Quoting Ba757gla (Reply 3): Southern goes into Victoria station ! it will be a little slower of course!
Only 5 minutes slower if the select correctly.
Thameslink and Southern will cost pretty much the same and Southern makes multiple trips per hour that stop at only Clapham Junction and/or East Croydon, which means they are only 5 minutes slower than the Gatwick Express. Weekends are a bit more hit and miss as there are fewer trains and usually they make more stops, but you should still be able to find one fast train per hour.
