Stansted Airport is situated North of London but there are good transport links to take you to our hotel.
We recommend hopping on the Stansted Express to Tottenham Hale Station and then taking the Victoria line (Light Blue line) to Euston where it’s a 7 minute walk to the Crescent Hotel.
You can buy your ticket on the Stansted Express through their website, on ticket machines at the airport station or through the trainline app. The earlier you book, the cheaper it will be!
Oyster Cards and contactless payments are not valid on the Stansted Express but can be used on the Victoria line.
Once you reach Euston Station, you’ll want to head past the Euston Square Gardens located in front of the station and across Euston Rd. Once you reach the other side of the road, head left (keeping the Gardens on your left side) for approximately 1 minute until you come across Duke’s Road which should appear on your right. Follow that road until it puts you on Burton St in where you’ll need to turn right. Go down that road, take your first left and you will see the Cartwright Gardens. Our Hotel will be there, just on your right.
