    Crawley – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Gat National
      Crawley is the closest town to Gatwick Airport. Before the Airport was built, Gatwick had a racecourse which even hosted the Grand National between 1916-1918.
    2. Sporting Pedigree
      England football manager Gareth Southgate, Olympic decathlon gold medallist Daley Thompson, middleweight boxing champion Alan Minter and sports presenter Dan Walker all spent their school years in Crawley.
    3. Creepy Crawley
      Not only have there been a number of stories regarding ghost sightings at Gatwick airport, there’s also the legend of a stagecoach that drove into thick mist, never to be seen again, and the infamous Sweeney Todd (the ‘Demon Barber of Fleet Street’) worked at a butcher’s shop in Crawley, where he learnt butchery skills and how to make pies.
    4. Named & Shamed
      The town’s name comes from the Saxon, ‘Crawl Leah’ which means ‘place infested with crows’.
    5. Dragon’s Tale
      In 1614 a London newspaper reported a dragon was living in woods close to Crawley after a number of ‘sightings’ had spooked villages running away. It’s believed these were actually stories created by a gang of smugglers, who spread rumours to keep people away from their stashed booty.
    6. World Champs
      The Greyhound Inn in the nearby village of Tinsley Green hosts the annual World Marbles Championships. A local story says that two men once played a game of marbles in the pub to decide who should marry a local woman.

    About Crawley

    While it’s considered a new town (one of the generation of towns that grew after the Second World War), Crawley actually date back to the 470’s. There have been people lining in the area since the Stone Age. During the Roman period this part of the Weald was a centre of iron working.

    The modern era was born from the expansion of the former RAF airport and people arriving from London that was still being rebuilt following the war.

    Today Crawley is a bustling, modern town with excellent infrastructure, great shops and plenty of entertainment and activities right on the doorstep.


    Soft play centres, bowling, cinemas, theatre, comedy clubs, there is plenty to keep the whole family smiling. Sports fans will find a number of teams to follow, plus a good selection of sports clubs and facilities. There are parks and walks with dedicated cycle paths and outdoor gyms if you prefer to keep fit outdoors. When you’re not keeping fit, you’ll find a huge array of eateries, regardless on your thoughts on calorie counting.


    Crawley is dominated by its association with Gatwick Airport (sitting just outside the town). There are buses and trains to the airport. From the town centre trains run to London Victoria, taking around 41 minutes. The M23 is a stone’s throw away, and meets with the M25 just a few miles north of Crawley before continuing into central London.
