Your Experience

With almost 60 bus journeys available from Stansted Airport and Victoria Station, you can choose a timing closest to the arrival time of your flight. The bus will go through many popular spots. These include Bow, Mile End, Whitechapel, Southwark, Waterloo, London Victoria Railway Station, and, the destination, London Victoria Coach Station. The 52-kilometer journey will take a little more than an hour by bus. By train, the same journey will take an hour and nine minutes at the earliest and a little more than that on average. A private cab might be quicker, but you will have to shell a significantly higher amount for that. Catching a train might seem like a viable option. Since the station is located a little far away from the airport terminal, having to tag your luggage along all the way is inconvenient. A bus transfer is the most affordable and convenient option. You can enjoy spacious seats, and dedicated luggage racks, to keep all your bags. Since the National Express bus station is just across the airport exit terminal, you will have to walk barely any distance before you reach the bus itself. The bus will stop at several spots around the city, and you can choose to get off at the convenient location. Due to its proximity to all the famous attractions of the city, Victoria Station is one of the busiest spots of the city, with a railway terminus and numerous bus stops. The towering Big Ben can be seen in the distance as you get close to the destination. Westminster Abbey, one of the finest examples of Gothic Architecture in the United Kingdom can also be seen, on the banks of the Thames. The Buckingham Palace, in white marble, surrounded by rows of vibrant blossoms and extensive gardens is one of the most beautiful sights in London. If you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the changing of the guard. With a different variant, you can also take a return journey from Victoria Station to Stansted Airport. The bus will travel along the same route.

Longed to watch the guard changing at Buckingham but the bus ran on different schedule. Liked the other attractions though.

The journey seemed bit longer than expected but the London traffic is quite inevitable. The bus trip was quite insightful.

The luggage racks inside the bus helped keeping my luggage arranged. Loved the soft spacious seats that offered elevated view.
