travel to stansted airport early in the morning

by Anna_PZ

does anyone know how I can get to the stansted airport from york
to catch a flight at 6.50 am? I would rather not take a B&B or sleep
at the airport. I do not have a car so I have to rely on public transport.
Many thanks, Anna

There are trains ( and coaches ( The former are faster, but more expensive than the latter. If you have a flight at 6.50 am you will need to check in about 4.50am. I don't think you will have any choice but to spend some time in the airport, especially if you take the train) but Stansted is bearable enough place for a short while.

I live a little south of york and I frequently use stansted, my sisterlives close by, its a three hour drive down the A1, and you need to allow more, so you would have to leave at midnight if you were driving. you might check out a coach and try to sleep on that?

When we moved from York to Sweden by ferry from Harwich there was no alternative other than staying in Harwich over night to catch the ferry. I'd pick B&B or possibly sleep on a night bus as that takes quite some time to meander down towards London.

Travel Tips for York

Go to York Minster! Easily...

by Liz10052

Go to York Minster! Easily rivals London's Westminster Abbey and St Paul's. Absolutely breathtaking. Walk around inside for awhile, then go downstairs to the museum they've set up. It illustrates the fascinating history of the church and the site on which it stands. Very worth the money (which is only a few pounds anyway). I loved it!


by LoriPori

On display in the North Transept of York Minster is the ODYSSEY EXHIBIT. Odyssey consists of thirty-two carved wooden figures, each 2.5 metres tall. The artist, Robert Koenig, carved male and female figures out of lime trees that grew in his mother's home village, Dominikowice in Poland.
The exhibit is on display from September 1 - 29, 2008

Recipe: Elderflower champagne


Elderflower champagne was very popular dring the 1920s-30s. A very refreshing summer drink.
Put 5 litres cold water in a food container. Add 5 elderflower heads, 1 sliced lemon, 500g granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar. Choose the sweetest scented flowerheads.
Cover and leave to stand for 24 hours, then strain through muslin and bottle.
Use high pressure screw top or beer bottles (the small 250ml beer bottles are not suitable).
Store at room temperature for 2 weeks. Chill well before drinking. It will keep for about six months.

never thought the english coastline was anything interesting until I went to Scarborough. Actually I only heard about the town from that simon and Garfunkel song ( stars chanting) but didnt what a lovely town it was.
Its located on the eastcoast about an hour from York by train. Its the last stop on the route so you wont miss it.
The town is one long step downhill. There are shops all the way down to the harbour, and lots of second hand shops all along the way. When you finally get to the harbour you reach something which could easely be compared to las vegas, only in smaller measures.
There are full of mini casinoes, where you can part with your money in the slotmachines, or those stupid things where you have to put some coins into and hope the other coins kick it off the edge. Its entertaining for a while but its all seen before.
If you take a scroll along the coastline you will see the roaring ocean beside you and beware you can easely get wet by the big waves...

Holiday resort Scarborough


Take a trip to the beautiful holiday resort Scarborough by train. The journey takes only 45 minutes. Scarborough has a north and a south bay, between them lies Scarborough castle (see photo).
Moreover the town offers an elegant Esplanade and fine gardens. Up the Yorkshire coast there are more interesting villages like the maritime town Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and the fishing harbour of Staithes.
