Once through Passport Control there are a collection of eateries to suit every taste, and shops to choose from whether Tax Free or Duty Free. For Business Class Travellers there is a chance to rest a spell in one of the two Executive Lounges on offer in the South Terminal or the one in the North. For travellers with special needs there are Free Help Points on offer at several locations where a Map and a useful telephone number is given to request assistance.
If there is time to spare, why not take advantage of Tilgate Forest Country Park nearby where beautiful scenery is mirrored in the lakes, Or if you have time for a round or two there is Effingham Park Golf Club where 18 holes will take you on a journey around five lakes.
