About Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport is located in West Sussex, London, and is a major hub for many airlines. Handling over 46 million passengers per year, it is the second most popular airport in the UK, just behind Heathrow Airport. The airport actually opened up in the late 1920s but has only been used for commercial flights since 1933. Although they only have two runways, they service almost 50 airlines all over the world.

With more than two dozen eateries inside, you surely won’t go hungry. The North Terminal has 13 places to choose from, including Shake Shack, The Red Lion, and Bar Burrito. In the South Terminal, you can find another 13 places such as Jamie Oliver’s Diner, Nando’s, and The Flying Horse. For your shopping fix, there are 34 shops and kiosks in the North Terminal and 29 in the South Terminal. 

London is the capital of England as well as the United Kingdom. It is also considered to be one of the world’s most powerful and important global cities. In fact, it has also been touted as the most popular work city, sustainable, innovative, and most visited, according to Forbes and several other major publications. But it’s not just a big famous city, it has a big tourism following as well.

Luggage Storage Options Near Gatwick Airport

  • Gatwick Aviation Museum: Less than four miles from the hangar on Lowfield Heath Road, the Gatwick Aviation Museum is actually on the airport property. See a huge collection of British aircraft from the Second World War to the 1970s, including the Percival, Blackburn, Gloster, Hawker, and Avro. They even have a nature trail and refreshments. 

  • Lowfield Heath Windmill: Just a few miles from Gatwick, this historic windmill in Charlwood, Surrey, is a fabulous place to visit while you are here. Built in 1737, the windmill is one of the oldest working windmills in the country. Drop off your luggage with Bounce and visit the grounds anytime for a picnic or just take a walk around. Or come during one of their open days for a tour of the inside of the mill. 

  • Reigate Caves: Have you ever been in a cave? These unique caves about seven miles from the airport are different from all the others. The main difference in Barons’ Cave is that it’s not lit. All guests have to carry their own lantern, making it especially spooky and fun. The Tunnel Road Caves are lit and a bit more modern but date back to the 1800s. Don’t bring your bags, though. Bounce has plenty of spots nearby where you can leave them. 

  • British Wildlife Centre: On Eastbourne Road, 10 miles from the airport, this impressive zoo has over 40 different species native to the area. Scottish wildcats, hedgehogs, red deer, and stoats are just some of the adorable creatures you can see. Grab your camera from your bags before dropping them with Bounce. 

  • Go Ape: If you are looking for some extreme adventures to get your blood pumping, head to Go Ape just seven miles from the airport in Tilgate Park. Make sure you drop off your suitcases at a Bounce location first because you will need both hands. Climb to the treetops in the Treetop Challenge or see the view from the canopy on a zip wire, bridges, and crossings sure to get your heart beating faster. For a more mellow experience, jump on a Segway for a trip around the park.

  • Buchan Country Park: Enjoy 170 acres of green fields, vibrant wildflowers, and trails at this park just eight miles from the airport on Horsham Road. Visit the Countryside Centre, have a bite to eat in the picnic area, or enjoy some coffee at the CoffeEco Mobile Barista. 

  • Cherry Lane Adventure Playground: If you need to keep the kids busy for a couple of hours, this playground on Cherry Lane is the perfect spot for that. It’s only six miles from the airport, and they have both indoor and outdoor activities. The kids can do some ziplining, climb the walls, jump on trampolines, and even ride go-karts.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
