Getting from Gatwick Airport to Standsted Airport

Has anyone ever taken public transit between these two airports, and if so was it a relatively easy and cost effective way of travelling?

The easiest way is to take National Express coach. According to their website, it takes anywhere between 2.5 to 3hrs for the trip, and costs 23 pounds one-way. I took their coach from Heathrow to Gatwick and it was painless and on time. Since I flew British Airways, I got a 2pound discount. You can find out more info at:

Good luck

When I went, we took the train between the airports
The best way is to take the express
it takes you direct without stopping along the way

Be very careful relying on advice from sam453. He has been posting a lot today w/ either totally incorrect info or such generic answers that he may not have even been to the places discussed.

There is NO DIRECT EXPRESS TRAIN from Gatwick to Stanstead -- you take either the bus, or, a train into London, a tube ride and another train to Stansted
