    Do not spend a night here unless you have to. Its very very very cold and almost all the stores/restaurants are closed.

    Stansted express train has %50discount if you buy 1 month before your journey. It takes 50 minutes from London Liverpool street station to airport. Some gates are accessible by a train within airport.

    Consistently the most rude airport security staff. Well done, Stansted!

  • Jack J.

    Cramped and busy airport, everyone on top of each other. Too many shops. Don't expect to have a fun time. The reprieve is one hour of free wifi. I long for a real airport such as LHR

  • Mark C.

    Arrive with LOTS of time to spare. They charge £3 just to drop people off now which results in a massive queue out front. Secondly, pay £5 for fast track security lane once inside to save an hour.

    Mark Clulow · September 28
  • Clay V.

    Avoid a late arrival if at all possible. The passport gates always have a massive queue. Airport needs some serious upgrades. Not fit for purpose.

    Clay Vickers · September 15
  • Stefan H.

    Cheapest option to get here is with National Express. 10£ from Liverpool Street Station.

    Stefan Hübner · August 7
  • Braeden M.

    Stansted Express is the best way to get here. Free wifi at the airport, but only for an hour. Awfully long lines for security. Crowded one-car people mover to satellite terminals.

    Braeden Mayer · July 25
  • Alfredo F.

    19£ train ticket to London Liverpool street station in less than 1 hour.

  • Michael H.

    Security was an absolute scrum. No one seemed to have a clue what was going on. And that was transferring to a domestic flight.

  • Clyde K.

    WATCH doesn't make the detectors beep - keep it on!

    Clyde Kasapi · June 22
  • Gabriel M.

    This airport is worse than a bloody zoo .... It's been few years have not used Stansted, pity how its reached sub-zero stand. Avoid if u can, extra cost of flight is million times worthwhile.....

    Gabriel Marine · May 22
  • Fatih K.

    Stansted Express is running perfectly to Liverpool Street and it is the best way to commute. There is almost always a long queue for passport control upon landing

    Fatih Kuran · May 19
  • Nastja S.

    Very big airport, a lot of people, too crowded. Ti much stress because of the security control. Better to buy fast track at £3.5

    Kind people

  • Natalie K.

    Worst airport I've ever been to. Not enough seats, everything under construction, no outlets anywhere.

    Natalie K · May 2
  • Magdalena M.

    You have to walk miles and miles before you can get out of this airport...

  • Joyce S.

    This airport has the worst design/circulation ever, and RyanAir is pretty shady. But it sure has cheap flights.

    Joyce Sohn · April 28
  • Jiri P.

    Very well post signed.

    Jiri Pavlik · April 24
  • Justin

    Needs more than the 3-ish seats available

    Justin · April 20
  • Scott S.

    Lots of building work currently going on at this airport which makes it very cramped...good luck finding somewhere to sit.

    Scott Stephens · April 16
  • Djothi C.

    Don't use their printers if you need them for your bus ticket, they are buggy and will eat a lot of your £ / €.

    Djothi Carpentier · April 15
  • Adam H.

    The new Wetherspoons there has a better menu and plugs everywhere.

    Adam Hutt · April 15
  • Marcelo Almeida

    liked. friendly security staff. 1 hour free wifi

    Marcelo Almeida · April 15
  • Mateusz P.

    Just a big, regular airtport. Be prepared for a long waiting in the security check queues.

    Mateusz P · April 13
  • Andrew M.

    Loo is between the Pret and Giraffe. You're welcome.

    Andrew Marks · April 12
  • Kubuś S.

    Very crowdy!

  • Amir Afiq A.

    There's a prayer room for all faiths can be found in Check-in Zone J, opposite Caffè Alba (before security control). Opening hours are 05:00 to 23:00 daily

    Amir Afiq Azmi · April 9
  • Amir Afiq A.

    first impression upon arrival was the airport doesn't feel/look that 'welcoming' after a long 14 hours flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but it's alright.

    Amir Afiq Azmi · April 9
  • Oliver S.

    Off you go, on holiday

    Oliver Shreeve · April 6
  • Vlad R.

    It was nice, but it lasted an eternity to get to pick my baggage, so you shouldn't go there on Sundays

    Vlad Rs · April 5
  • Merve A.

    Security checks take ages. There are M&S, a small shop and Costa before security check, and few restaurants near the gates.

    Merve A. · March 31
  • Nisa O.

    Be there early, always crowded

    Nisa Osman · March 29
  • Paul G.

    Prepare for long security queues. Avoid. ✈️

    Paul Gallagher · March 28
  • Hassan E.

    Not a fan of this airport. Its ok but could be better.

    Hassan Elmi · March 24
  • João Pedro O.

    Nice airport to stay overnight!

  • Krzysztof K.

    I really like that airport. It's crowded, sometimes the organization is bad but still it has its own charm. Try to get the latest flight once. You'll be surprised how calm it is.

  • Aga K.

    Very long queues to the incoming EU border in the morning! Take it into consideration when booking a transfer to London because we waited 40mins for checking documents and nearly missed our bus!

    Aga Kozlowska · March 17
  • Richard

    Once you are passed through security the airport is quite nice now it has undergone a major refurbishment. Security and Ryanair bag drop queues are long and slow!!

    Richard · March 15
  • Nerijus M.

    Experience is much improved recently

  • Olga O.

    Once 1 hour of free wi-fi (per device) has expired, you can still use: foursquare app, most google products (search, plus, blogspot, etc, but not gmail), the airport's official website (obviously)

    Olga Orlova · March 14
  • Chris P.

    Vast, hollow, impersonal architecture sets the tone for this airport that is in dire need of a personality to calm all the victims of Ryanair that pass through it's white warehouse-style halls.

    Chris Parkes · March 13
  • Hassan E.

    Its OK....not a nice looking airport but does the job and close to Cambridge

    Hassan Elmi · March 8
  • Tamas O.

    Since the refurbrishment started, the whole airport is dark, overcrowded and has lack of seats. Hope it ends soon.

    Tamas Olajos · March 7
  • Mark W.

    Security at Departues takes an age. Get through early! (Least 30mins before boarding)

    Mark Whiteside · February 25
  • Kasia

    Horrible and overcrowded airport.

    Kasia · February 24
  • James R.

    What a totally ridiculous new layout. Winding lane of shops to go through just after security. People stopping and tripping over each other. You should have left it as it was!

    James Richards · February 21
  • Leman O.

    Takes ages to go through the security :(
