Here is the scenario: Arriving late in the evening (23:10) on a Friday flight into LGW. Need to get to my hotel at LHR and rest up for flight back to the States on Saturday morning.
The schedule for the National Express coach has the last bus departing LGW North at 12 midnight. It's 19.50 GBP. A private car with driver is around 70 GBP. A no-brainer, maybe, but I need to know if 50 minutes at that time of the night is enough time to get from the plane, through baggage claim, HM customs,etc. to make it to the coach.
Thoughts are appreciated!
