Hiya there,

tom and myself are off to Gatwick next weekend ( or possibly weekend after) but are travelling by train and are wondering if anyone has any tipson where to go. Neither of us are particularly good at photography :) but are hoping to improve! I'm told it's easily possible to walk from the station to the threshold of 8R - is this so? Bear in mind we won't have a car!

Cheers for that. Just wondering whether anyone knew how to get out of the train station.

I have set up base camp on the grass by the road at the 26 threashold a few times during 05. Was not questioned once.

From the south terminal take the emergency stairs from the domestic arrivals (next to easyjet area). At the bottom you will find yourself in the tunnel under the terminal. urn right and walk along to the threashold.

I would guess it could be a nightmare in this weather as you are fully exposed with no cover available.
