Gatwick to Bethnal Green

Take an overground train from Gatwick to London Bridge Station. Then you will take the 48 bus from the station to the the Warner Place bus stop bus stop on Hackney Road. The bus journey should take 20 minutes. The bus stop is just past Hackney City Farm.

Paper ticket and Oyster Card

  • Purchase a paper ticket labeled ‘Not Gatwick Express’ for travel from airport to London Bridge Station.
  • You will use an Oyster Card to travel on the Tube and on busses within London.
  • You will not use Oyster to travel between the airport and the city.
  • Oyster Cards are the cheapest way to travel on public transport in London.
  • You will pay £3 for the card and I advise that you put £10 credit on the card.
  • When you leave you can return your card and get your £3 and any remaining credit back.
  • You use the card by ‘touching in and out‘ at Tube stations and by ‘touching in’ when you board a bus. You do not ‘touch out’ when getting off the bus.
  • Here is TFL’s page on using Oyster.
