Distance from Gatwick Airport to Thameslink to Eurostar?

First time going to Europe!

Booking times for the Thameslink and Eurostar and wondering how much time we need in between.  Will be landing in London approx 9:30am and planning to get to Thameslink by 10:45am (crossing customs etc. - is an hour enough?) and catch a 12:30pm eurostar.  Doable?

Hi Nancy, 

1 hour from landing to Thameslink/Eurostar is really tight!

Journey time from Landing at London Gatwick Airport (LGW)Heathrow Airport to Central London is about 1.5 hours, without delays!

If you are landing at 9:30 (which is more like 9:45 knowing London holding patterns for landing aircraft) I would expect you are in Central London by 11:30 - 12:00 at best.

Worst case scenario, you have spare time to have a macchiato and enjoy the recently refurbished hotel in central London!
