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.
Luton Airport is located just over 13 miles from the M25, an almost
straight run along the M1.
Stansted Airport, Heathrow Airport and Gatwick 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.
