Transport : Airport Lounges

Virgin Atlantic has just launched a brand new Clubhouse airport lounge at Gatwick North terminal (Virgin flights recently moved terminals at Gatwick). This lounge features in my review of the best Airport Lounges at London Gatwick.

The new Clubhouse lounge has large windows with views across the runway, a large central bar and a partnership with East London cocktail bar White Lyan means a selection of delicious and rather special cocktails are on offer.

The menu is standard Virgin’s Clubhouse food (you can see my review of Virgin’s Clubhouse at Heathrow for a better idea of the food on offer). There is also a woodland-themed play area for children.

The spa area offers free treatments if you manage to snag a short appointment and is worth a try.

The Clubhouse also has outposts in LAX, Newark, JFK, San Francisco, Boston, Washington Hong Kong, Johannesburg and Gatwick. These lounges are fun, well designed and offer better food than the BA Galleries lounges. To find out which other ways Virgin is better than British Airways read my article on British Airways Vs Virgin Atlantic. Both airlines feature in my top 10 best airlines for longhaul Business Class.
