Your Experience

A bus journey from Stansted Airport to Paddington Station is one of the most affordable and comfortable ways to travel between the two stations. Trains can be quite inconvenient due to the locations of the stations. Having to carry heavy luggage all the way to the trains stations is quite difficult. While a taxi might be the best bet, it is quite expensive. A bus transfer is the best solution and is the perfect balance of affordability and comfort. The air-conditioned and plush interiors will ensure a relaxed atmosphere and will allow you to enjoy London from your quiet vantage point. The journey is approximately 65 kilometers and will take an hour and a half due to traffic on the streets of London. As you get closer to the center of London, you will catch sight of the Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, and the Buckingham Palace. Portrayed widely in media, witnessing these monuments in real life is a stunning experience. The sight of the magnificent bridges such as the London Bridge and Tower Bridge is breathtaking. The Tower Bridge, in particular, is one of the most stunning. A bascule and suspension bridge, it is 65 meters tall and can be raised to allow ships to pass underneath. The bridge requires 5 minutes to raise, and if you are lucky, you might even catch sight of the raised bridge.

The flight was on time and we were worried whether the bus would arrive on time. Well, it was and we never felt jet lagged as the journey was smooth along the famous tourist attractions!
