The M25 is the orbital motorway that encompasses the whole of greater London. In fact in practical terms the M25 now determines the areas considered to be within London by being a man border around it.

Gatwick Airport is located just over 9 miles from the M25, an almost straight run along the M23.
Stansted Airport, Heathrow Airport and Luton Airport are also located very close to the M25 motorway which means travel by road to each of these airports is most practically travelled via the M25 even though the distances are far greater than travelling in a straight line.

Please note that the M25 motorway is notorious for traffic delays and so all journey times shown on this page are a guide only.
