How to Get To Stansted Airport

London is one of the most visited and travelled destinations in world, whether for work or for leisure. Hence in order to cater to high volumes of passengers every year, there are many airports ik UK itself that are well connected with different parts of the world like Manchester Airport, Gatwick Airport or Stansted Airport.

Manchester and Heathrow are the busiest ones however in the past few years even Stansted airport is becoming one of the fastest growing airports in the world. Every year almost 25 million passengers travel to and from Stansted Airport from different parts of the world. Therefore a proper and effective infrastructure is required in future in order to handle large number of travellers.

 Modes of Travel from Stansted Airport

Once you have reached the city the first and the foremost thing that you think about is how to get from the airport to your desired destination. Stansted Airport is situated farther outside the city and hence if you want to travel, you might have to do a bit of planning.

One of the most common and taken options can be Stansted Airport Taxi service service. Since there are no taxi ranks particularly outside the airport which normally other airports have, therefore you might need to book the Stansted Airport Taxi beforehand either by phone or booking on the airport itself. For booking on the airport you would have to contact the international arrivals desk of the airport and ask the airport staff to book the Stansted Airport taxi for you. You also have an option of calling cab services that operate in the city. If you are looking for a cheaper option than booking a Stansted Airport Taxi, then here are some options that you can check.

Train Service

Stansted has its own dedicated railway network that joins different cities of United Kingdom. You can easily find trains in the interval of every 15 minutes during the day time and during the peak hours that is early morning and after 5 PM be ready to wait for 30 minutes for the train to arrive. The train service begins from 6 AM in the morning and runs till the midnight. If you want to travel luxury then you can book your ticket on the business class. However, the train other than the business class is also quite comfortable so why spend extra.

Wildflower Hall A Fairy Tale Luxury Resort

Endless pines and cedars dotting the mountains, wisps of mist and views of magnificent snow peaks... no wonder the British chose Shimla for their summer capital. The crowning glory of Shimla, at 8,250 feet precisely, is the astounding Wildflower Hall, an Oberoi resort. Words can't justify the immense charm and beauty of the resort – picturise yourself sitting by the fire, smoking your pipe, savouring a drink or reading as the world goes by. If history and class make up your cup of tea, Wildflower Hall is just the place for you.

The site where the hotel is located was once the residence of Lord Kitchener who was the commander-in-chief of India's armed forces in the early 20th century. The property was rebuilt to reflect grandeur reminiscent of those times. So there are teak wood floors everywhere, hand-knotted rugs and furnishings complete the picture. You could explore the rich flora and fauna of the Himalayas based at the resort, taking long walks and enjoying the fresh mountain air. For the adventurous type, the resort provides opportunities galore – river rafting, trekking and mountain biking among others.

If you love to laze at the spa, the Wildflower Hall is just the place for you. This fairy tale luxury resort offers an outdoor Jacuzzi apart from a heated swimming pool. Having got an opportunity to stay at the resort for a couple of days, I decided to explore the options at the spa. I opted for the signature indigenous rituals where I got a rejuvenating head massage which was combined with inhalation of essential oils. Then there is a steam therapy as well, and I came out relaxed and rejuvenated after a session at the spa.

The rooms are yet another story altogether. Each room offers views of the gardens, the mountains and the forests around. There are marble bathrooms, LCD TV, satellite television and DVD player, Wi-Fi and all the modern amenities that are expected of a luxury resort. There are Deluxe Garden View Rooms, Premier Garden View Rooms, Premier Mountain View Rooms, Deluxe Suites and the Lord Kitchener Suite. The mountain-view rooms are highly recommended, as most guests would feel.

When it comes to dining, The Restaurant has on its menu Indian, Asian and continental dishes to please the palate of international travellers. Lutyens caters to traditional Indian cooking, and you can enjoy a traditional dinner here as I did. It opens only during the peak season, though, and only for dinner. The Cavalry bar is idea for relaxing with a drink of which there is wide variety.

The best time to visit Shimla is during summer. If you want to experience snowfall, you should visit in winter, but if you are not used to extreme winters, it may not be a great idea. There are many hotels in shimla to suit your budget, but if you can enjoy a stay at The Wildflower Hall, nothing like it! It is the place to head to among all the resorts in Shimla.
