thinking of going down to London for a few days with the wife and daughter at the start of July, does anyone know the cheapest way of getting from gatwick to the docklands area (staying at the etap hotel at London city airport, flights to London city are double than what we will pay to gatwick so that is the reason for not flying into London city)

If your thinking about going on the train look at booking one way fairs. i.e one way there and one way back.

I always use TheTrainLine (google it) for my tickets. Also make sure you compare return ticket prices to two one way prices as sometimes they are very different. Lastly book in advance (1month Before) as you will save quite a bit.

Failing a free lift get a train from Gatwick to London Bridge (Not the Gatwick express .. to expensive) then one stop on the undergound (Northern Line) to Bank Station Then DLR (Docklands light Railway) to London city airport

If you going to travel via underground then it maybe worth your while getting a oyster card - saves a bit of pounds.
