Where will my car be parked at APH Gatwick?

When booking our APH Gatwick Park & Ride option, you can be assured that your car will be fully secured in a car park that has been awarded the Park Mark Safer Parking Award. Our new state-of-the-art APH Car Park, just off the M23, is a fabulous new site, with easy access to both terminals at Gatwick. This is where you will drop off and pick up your car. And this is where your car will normally stay for the duration of your trip.

In peak travel times, however, APH offers expanded capacity to meet demand. This means that we could move your car to the former APH main car park at Snow Hill (overflow1) or to our alternative secure parking option (overflow 2), at Westlands. Either option will incur less than seven miles additional mileage. They are protected by full CCTV, security fencing, motion-detection alarms, and are approved with the Park Mark Safer Parking Award. Your car will always be returned to the main APH Car Park ready for you to collect.
