The airport railway station is situated below the terminal building. You can buy a train ticket at the railway station. Trains depart every 15 or 30 minutes, and it will take you about 45 minutes to get to central London, Liverpool Street station.

The last train to leave Stansted Airport for Liverpool Street leaves at 00.30 (Monday - Thursday and Saturday), 01.30 (Friday and Sunday).
