How to get from Gatwick Airport to Stansted Airport :

There are two main ways to travel from Gatwick Airport to Stansted Airport by train. You can obtain a though ticket for the whole journey but that wont cover the Gatwick Express or Stansted Express which make less stops and so are slightly quicker.

Through ticket route:
Option 1: Take the southern railways train into Victoria station. Transfer onto the tube Victoria line and take the train to Tottenham Hale Station or circle line to Liverpool Street. Transfer onto the mainline train out to Stansted Airport.
When booked as one trip this costs from around £39.40 one-way adult fare and takes around 115-120 minutes.

Gatwick Express train
Option 2: Take the Gatwick Express into Victoria station and complete the journey using the mainline service. The advantage here is that the Gatwick Express is non-stop so saving time over the mainline service which makes stops on route. The disadvantage is you need to pay twice for the two different services needed for the whole journey.
