Less than 40 miles from Central London and just over 30 miles from Cambridge and Colchester, Stansted Airport greeted more than 22.5million passengers in 2015. It serves more than 170 destinations across Europe, Central America, North America and North Africa and is one of the busiest airports in the UK. To serve such a huge number of people, Stansted has fantastic facilities and a choice of options when it comes to parking.
Being so close to London and other major towns and cities, finding parking in the neighbouring areas can be difficult. Most street parking is reserved for residents, and visitors also put increased demand on the remaining spaces. This could leave you stuck paying for a taxi or trying to carry heavy bags on public transport. However, there are great value car parks at Stansted Airport to allow you to leave your car conveniently close to the airport while you travel.
