A new tourism website was launched today (18 June) to tempt Gatwick Airport's 30 million passengers to ditch the bright lights of London for the attractions of the South East.
Released in time for the Olympics, Aroundgatwick.com highlights the best that Surrey and the rest of the region has to offer to entice tourists.
The website, which is a joint venture between Gatwick, Surrey County Council and other organisations in the South East, shows off the region's unique attractions, from castles and classic English villages to award-winning vineyards and world famous museums.
Helyn Clack, Surrey County Council's Cabinet Member for Community Services and the 2012 Games, said: "Our aim is to encourage the millions of people who travel through Gatwick Airport to visit Surrey instead of taking the express train straight to London.
"This summer's Olympic and Paralympic Games will bring hundreds of thousands of tourists to the UK and this new website should lead to more of them visiting Surrey and the rest of the South East."
