For those needing to travel between Wreningham and Stansted Airport an existing option is about to become a lot more viable.  From the 15th December, many of the Norwich to Cambridge train services are being extended to Stansted Airport. See here and here.

The journey time between Wymondham Station and Stansted will be approximately 1¾ hours.  That will take you right alongside the terminal building.  If you’d been planning to drive, park in the airport’s Long Term of Mid Stay car parks, taking the bus link to the terminal, you’ll find the overall journey time between Wymondham and the inside of the airport terminal to be almost the same by train.

Of course, life isn’t perfect.  The through trains between Norwich and Stansted won’t be operating in the early mornings or in the evenings (that will require a change) but, otherwise, it’s a very regular service.  You can check the train times here, (put in dates after 15th December to see the new services and times).

Of course, with the introduction of the new Greater Anglia fleet – already operating on the route to Cambridge, the train is a great improvement, too.

Thanks to David Kirk for finding this for us.
