Go to the Stansted Airport website and you will find all the ways on the transport to and from the airport link.

Or you can look here:

Best way is by Stansted Express train, imo, but it's the most expensive.

Buses and coaches are cheaper, but you should allow for traffic congestion making your journey slower than it might otherwise be.

Certainly look at the cost of taking EASY BUS from London to Stansted. Can be cheap.

Easy Bus is easily the cheapest but its start and end point in London is Baker Street which may not be suitable for everyone. However transport connections are good from Baker Street station. Easy Bus is non stop to and from Baker Street.

Travel Tips for London

Being a pedestrian in London

by Marpessa

Generally I'd have to say 'watch out' if you are a pedestrian walking around London - especially if you are not used to places/cities with such congested traffic. In London you can often hear a car horn, this is usually when a pedestrian can't wait for a walk light or is crossing in the middle of the road - in London, on the road, transportation waits for no-one, so just be sure you look both ways and watch your step.

EAST FACES IN BRITISH MUSEUM

by Andrew_Liu

Bright hall. All people here have almost east face. The whole items on display represent the east culture. Perhaps you can not consider it is in London when you see this picture in any other places. It is British Museum, room 33.
I understand these people’s impression, because I am one of these people.
But I should thank British museum for their useful works. They have taken very good care of these items so that we can visit these valuable cultural treasures.
Is my opinion correct or not?

City of London

by toonsarah

Although London itself is a city, not everyone realises that within its boundaries lies another city, the original City of London, sometimes referred to as the “Square Mile”. This small city dates back to the Middle Ages, and with its neighbour Westminster was the core around which the sprawling modern metropolis developed. But it has remained an autonomous (at local government level) authority and has a culture and atmosphere all its own.

There are probably two main reasons to come here – history and money. Indeed the term “The Square Mile” is used not only to designate the geographical area but also London’s financial services industry. Prior to the recession, and to some extent even now during it, London owes its international standing and much of its wealth to the activities that happen in just this small corner of the metropolis. That wealth is evident in the large number of modern office blocks squeezed into this small space, and any admirer of modern architecture will find something to appeal to them here. My own and many others’ favourite is the so-called “Gherkin”, more properly known as 30 St Mary Axe, designed by Sir Norman Foster and built to house the London headquarters of a Swiss bank. This is at present the second tallest building in the City; the tallest is Tower 42 (formerly known as the Nat West Tower and still called that by many Londoners, me included!) This is 42 storeys and 183 metres high, but it will be surpassed by the currently under construction Pinnacle or “Helter-Skelter” which is planned to rise to a massive 288 metres, and which looks set to become another iconic building for London.

For history buffs, the City of London offers even more than it does for fans of modern architecture. This history goes back to Roman times, with the building of the city wall within which the mediaeval city later developed. You can still see fragments of this wall in the grounds of the (excellent) Museum of London and in the area around the Tower of London. It was during this medieval period that the growth of London really accelerated, happening in two distinct areas. The nearby up-river town of Westminster became the Royal capital and centre of government, while here the City of London developed as the centre of commerce and trade. It was not until around 1600 that the area between them became entirely built-up, so it is not surprising that to this day they retain such different cultures and atmospheres.

The defining historical moment in the history of the City was the Great Fire of 1666. It ripped through the heart of the mediaeval maze of streets, and after it had passed grand plans were proposed to rebuild the city on more modern lines, with grand boulevards such as those already shaping the centre of Paris. The main proponent of this plan was the architect Sir Christopher Wren, and at the centre of his plan was to be a majestic cathedral. That cathedral was St Paul’s, and indeed it is wonderful, but the rest of his plan never cam to fruition, and many of us are glad that it did not. Instead the new city grew up on much the same street pattern as the old one and it that pattern that makes the City what it is today. You can still trace the winding lanes in today’s narrow passageways, and the small size and irregular shape of the city blocks has given rise to real inventiveness in modern building design as epitomised by the Gherkin and Pinnacle. The main historical sights to be seen in the City include the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, numerous other Wren churches (i.e. designed by Sir Christopher Wren to replace those lost in the Great Fire), the Monument (marking the site of the same Great Fire), the Royal Courts of Justice and the Inns of Court, the Guildhall, the Royal Exchange and many more. There is a good suggested walking tour on the website below, although I think the idea that you might complete this is one day is very optimistic (unless you choose not to stop anywhere at all en route). There are also plenty of quaint historic pubs when you’re in need of refreshment, but be warned that these get very busy at lunch-times and in the period immediately after work (5.00 – 7.00 PM) and can be very quiet later in the evening and at weekends – indeed, the whole city takes on an altogether sleepier atmosphere at that time.

Peculiar Abbey

by rickyvilla81

Westminster Abbey is no Abbey. It is no Cathedral. It is in fact a Royal Peculiar, for it is there that monarchs have been crowned since 1066, all of them bar a couple of Edwards (those Edwards!). It was in fact built by an Edward originally, King Edward the Confessor, but they do say that the ground was sanctified by St.Peter himself who was brought over the Thames in some story I have forgotten.
I tell you what, a lot of people are buried in here - monarchs, writers, architects, poets, actors, scientists, abbots, musicians; the last to be buried here was Sir Laurence Olivier. Many wordsmiths are honoured, if not all buried, at Poets Corner, including Chaucer, Dryden, and Shakespeare. Above the main entrance are statues of modern martyrs - including Martin Luther King.

So many typicle London (and...

by Pavlik_NL

So many typicle London (and English) things. Take a London-cab or a double-deckerbus to get around. You can't watch the city in a more 'English' way. For tourists there are special 'open top' doubledeckers, so you can freely look around and make great pictures from passing monuments (weatherpermitting of course).

Christmas in London is of fairytale-like splendour. The shopwindows (go to Harrods) are amazing and the lights shimmer through the long evenings.
