Questions about this journey

  •  Guest – “So as not to be walking around lost what platform will the train to liverpool street station go from.”
  • Admin – “Our info says No.16, but look for the one that says Eastbound (on the Circle line)”
  •  Guest – “I have a return journey on the early morning of 12th at 7.55 AM, which means I have to be at the Airport latest by 6.30 AM. Could you please tell me the best way to get to Liverpool street from Paddinton before I get on the Stansted Express to reach the Airport by 6.30 AM. . Are there and if there are early morning trains/Tube/underground to get there.Your reply is so much appreciated. Thank you & best regards. Regina”
  • Admin – “that's going to be a very tight (risky) journey.the first train from paddington is at 04:51, which arrives into Liverpool street at 05:10.According to the Stansted Express timetable you can then get a train at 05:25 from Liverpool Street, which arrives into the airport at 06:12 ( ... f?sfvrsn=4)that doesn't leave you much margin for error.The Stansted Express does run earlier trains, but it's not possible to get to Liverpool Street by tube, because the tubes don't run that early.”
  •  Guest – “Wow..appreciate your immediate and fast reply. This helps me a lot to plan my return journey now and hopefully all works this way. But yes, learnt a lesson - No more early morning flights...its a lot of trouble.Thank you very much once again and best regards,ReginaGermany”
