Gatwick Airport Lounges

Gone are the days when airport lounges were only for the rich and famous flying first class.

Today, Gatwick Airport’s two terminals offer a number of airport lounges, for all travellers, flying with any airline and in any class, including entry to children.

Prices start from £16.00 per adult, for a three-hour stay, and include unlimited buffet-style food and drink and the use of the lounge facilities.

Airport lounges are a great way to unwind and relax before a flight and offer spectacular panoramic views of the runway. They also allow you to escape the crowds and general hustle and bustle of the airport, particularly during peak travel times, such as the summer holidays when queues for food and drink are long and service can be slow.

Gatwick Airport lounge providers are No. 1 Traveller, and Aspire by Servisair.

The lounge facilities in both terminals include:

  • Unlimited, free Wi-Fi
  • TVs, games room and cinema
  • Daily international newspapers and magazines
  • Family room

Dining menus include a good selection of hot and cold dishes, including vegetarian. The bar menus include wines, beers and spirits. There is also an extensive champagne and cocktail list and an a la Carte menu, both of which are charged at extra.

Children under the age of 16 are permitted in the lounges but must be accompanied by an adult.
