Default Travel into central London from ....

.... Stanstead airport.

Can someone please advice the cheapest way to get two adults and a child
from Stanstead airport to central London and back again. Traveling in on a
Friday morning and returning on Monday evening. (9pm flight) I've had a
look at the Stanstead website and from what I can see the train prices are
almost as expensive as the easyjet flights I'm getting from N.Ireland!

TIA ... John

PS: First post here so greetings to you all from Northern Ireland.

Some more!

On the Friday I'm arriving I'll be using public transport quite a bit. From
East Dulwich as far North as the Ally Pally and lots of places in between.
So I think I'll be needing an all zone travel card. How much is an adult and
a child travel card?

Also I'll be leaving the Ally Pally about 11pm on Friday evening. Whats the
public transport like at that time with regards to returning to East
Dulwich?

So many questions!

Thanks ... John

Bus is the obvious suggestion. Have a look at:

The A6 bus (National Express) seems to be the one you want.

Probably the coach would be the cheapest option. See:

Yup. The A6 is slow but reliable, cheap and runs through the night
between Stansted and Victoria.

Alexandra Palace is in Zone 3 and East Dulwich is in Zone 2 so you probably
won't need an all zone travelcard. You can get a family travelcard for zones
1-4 for £3 adult and 80p child.

The last train to East Dulwich leaves London Bridge at 2349. In order to
catch that you would need to be on the 2255 from Alexandra Palace and then
catch the Northern Line from King's Cross to London Bridge.

Thanks for the reply.

Thats an all day travel card for zones 1-4 for £3 adult and 80p child? We
are two adult males and a child heading for a sporting event in the Ally
Pally (Ice-hockey) Do we qualify for a family travelcard ok?

Seems cheap to me, last time I was in London I think an adult card was £4.10
(approx)

Yes, it doesn't matter if you are related or not. The only condition is that
you must travel together at all times.

As long as you travel together then you will be able to buy and use a
family travelcard.

They are for off-peak travel which is after 9.30am Mon - Fri. All day
Sat, Sun and public holidays.

Sounds like your best bet is to get one-day Travelcards from Stansted. That
will cover your journey to London and all the travelling around that
evening, on National Rail, London Underground and buses. There may be a
family ticket available. Try the TfL travel planner for that last trip. It
might just be OK, or it might involve night buses.
