I'm a totally newbie when it comes to travelling, this is my first time on a train!

Sounds silly but if my train arrive at London Kings Corss at 01.06 how can i get on the tube transfer at 01.06? And is this journey included on my ticket or will i need to purchase one?

Thanks

The underground dosent run to Gatwick Airport. Your best bet is a Direct rail service from St Pancras International (next to Kings Cross) to Gatwick Airport. You'll have to buy a ticket for this.

Ive just read your edited post now. and yes all the journeys are pert of your ticket. Once you get off at Kings cross your meant to get your transfer at St Pancreas. Tube come and go in mins so don't worry about missing that specific one just jump on the next one going to victoria.

look for the victoria line at kings cross and follow for that platform.

The direct route

The stations at King’s Cross and St Pancras International are linked together, offering a wide network of travel options all over the country. Simply head to King’s Cross and walk over the concourse to get to the St Pancras International station. Here you can take a direct train to Gatwick Airport.
The journey time takes between approximately 45 minutes and an hour, depending on the time of day with the service being operated by First Capital Connect. Check online to confirm departure times and book tickets. The station at Gatwick is located directly underneath the South Terminal, with lifts and escalators to take you straight into the building.
A little bit longer

An alternative method is to travel from King’s Cross to London Victoria, then on to Gatwick Airport. Go into King’s Cross Underground station and take the Victoria line (pale blue) southbound. Victoria mainline and underground station is just 5 stops away.
The usual tube rules apply – have your ticket ready to slot straight into the barriers and don’t get in people’s way on the escalator. If you have bulky luggage that won’t fit through the narrow gap, look for the wide, manned gates to one side as you exit the underground station.
Head towards Victoria mainline station and you’ll find all the departure boards. Southern Trains operate a stopping service to Gatwick that takes approximately 35 minutes. You’ll arrive underneath the South Terminal of the airport.

Would've been wise to have done you research before booking your ticket.
If i was in your position i would just pay that little extra to get the direct journey from St Pancreas to Gatwick. Rather than stop at victoria.

You have your journey itinerary but do you have the actual tickets on you?
the tickets should give you some idea as to weather they are advance tickets meaning you have to catch that train/tube or if they are anytime.

The tube from Kings Cross to Victoria takes about ten minutes. But the last Victoria line train out of Kings Cross going south wouldve gone by then. You can get the N73 night bus from Kings Cross directly to Victoria, have a look on tfl.gov.uk at the journey planner for more information.
