London Stansted Airport (STN) is an international airport located in Stansted Mountfitchet, in the Uttlesford district in the Essex, some 30 miles (that is, 48 km) north­east of London. Stansted is somehow the headquarters of many important low­cost flight companies in Europe, supposedly dragged by Ryanair’s over one hundred destinations managed in the airport. In 2013, it was the fourth busiest airport by passenger traffic in the UK after Heathrow, Gatwick, and Manchester. Stansted is linked to London and Cambridge by M11 route and to Braintree, Colchester, and Harwich by A120 route.

What to do in London Stansted Airport

Each of the thirty­two London boroughs has something peculiar that makes it worth a visit. Renting a car can ease your mind with regards to taxicabs or costly and crowded public transportation. In this way, you can also find accommodation far from the city center, thus saving money and using your car to reach the many beauties in town. London will enslave you for days with every kind of attraction, such as Westminster Abbey, the Big Ben, the Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Tower with the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom, Buckingham Palace, Covent Garden, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Harrods, the Thames River cruise. On the other hand, you may want to visit some of the amazing city museums, namely the British Museum and the National Gallery. Finally, if the weather is good enough, you can loiter around in Hyde Park, Regent’s Park, and St James, arguably the best green spaces in London.

Must­see

  • Sunbathing at Hyde Park

  • A day with your kids at the British Museum

  • The house on the Hill Toy Museum

Driving near London Stansted Airport

Limiting your exploration only to London might be a pity. What about leaving Stansted and visiting one of the sights around there? Having a hire car will be a huge asset to take a look around to the rich English landscape Take, for instance, the area north of London. It deserves a visit not only for its natural landscape but also for its history. Close to the airport you could pay a visit to the unforgettable Mountfitchet castle and to the highly­accoladed House on the Hill Toy Museum ­ one of the greatest in Europe. Both sights lay close to each other. The Toy Museum could be a great idea for a day with your children. It opened in 1991 and displays some 80.000 toys, mainly from 1950­1980.
