My family group (10 of us) will be arriving at Gatwick at 11:16 on a Saturday, and from what I've been reading in the forums, it seems the train into London is the best way to go. I was trying to figure out if I should buy tickets ahead of time for the Gatwick Express, but then read that if you arrive on the weekend it is better to take a different train? Thameslink or Southern? Victoria Station and St Pancras seem about the same distance, more or less, from our hotel.
We'll be staying in Soho near Prince Edward Theatre; we are okay with taking (a number of) cabs from the train station to where we'll be staying, but I wanted to see if I should be buying train tickets ahead of time, or if I'm okay doing that at the airport. Also, do I take the Gatwick Express or not?
Thanks for any help!
