The nearest airports to Interlaken are Sion and Bern, but neither has flights from the UK.
The simplest way to get there from Gatwick is to fly with easyJet to Zurich:
There are some trains which run directly from Zürich Flughafen to Interlaken Ost, typically taking around 2¼ hours. At other times you need to change at Bern (and then possibly at Spiez as well, depending upon the particular service chosen):
For cheap, but well-reviewed accommodation, in Interlaken, consider the Hotel Tell, which can be booked through several online sites:
I went there as a14-year old with the scouts, so I can understand your addiction. I had to return to show my wife (as soon as we could afford) and later our grandsons. Consider going in summer; it's just as snowy at the Jungfraujoch and the views are just as good. It's worth buying the Bernese Oberland pass if you're there for more than a week - it gives you 5 days free transport on all the buses, boats on lakes Brienz and Interlaken, all the ski-lifts and most of the mountain railways. Unfortunately the last bit to the Jungfraujoch isn't free but you can get part way free and a discount on the final leg. The interesting bit is that all the trains, boats and buses connect with each other AND THEY RUN TO TIME.
However you choose to do it you WILL enjoy yourself bringing back all your memories.
