Gatwick Airport Lounges

No matter your class of travel, that typical airport experience can easily be avoided with a simple trick that the most savvy travellers use to avoid the crowds.

Whether a first class or economy class passenger, you can enjoy excellent facilities and receive priority treatment at one of the Gatwick Airport lounges. Available for passengers at both terminals, these facilities offer you quiet spaces, complimentary drinks & snacks, newspapers & magazines, kids entertainment and a range of facilities away from the bustle of the airport.

There are four lounges we recommend for you. There's two at the north terminal and two at the south terminal. Take a close look at our details of these facilities and how you can book your stay.

Note: With the comfort and relaxation you'll receive at these lounges, be sure to be at your boarding gate at least 20 minutes before your flight's scheduled departure time.

Top tip: Enjoy a little extra time in the lounge, ideal for romantic getaways, check in a little early for your flight and romance your partner with some champagne before you fly.

Our best choice whether you fly from the north or south terminal is the Number 1 Lounge at Gatwick. Offering an exceptional experience and with experience of providing top class relaxation before you fly at multiple destinations, including it's location at Heathrow, you won't go wrong with this choice.
