The best way to get from central London to Stansted Airport. Then comming home I will be travelling at around midnight. I found terravion, or the bus or train, or another option? What my best choice?

The fastest way from Central London to Stansted Airport is usually to take the Standsted Express Train from Liverpool Street station. The journey takes about 45mins, however this is not the cheapest option costing approx GBP15. The good thing about the Stansted Express is it runs every 15 mins, is fast, clean and safe. However you might need to find an alternative method to get back to london as the last train usually leaves the airport about 00:30

You can also get buses from Victoria St Station and Golders Green. The buses are run by National Express and run 24 hours a day. They're a little cheaper than the Stansted Express, but the journey time is longer.

If you're going to be close-ish to Victoria the Terravision is probably the way to go, it's a bit cheaper than National Express and there isn't any difference in the standard of comfort or reliability, though National Express is definitely an option if they've sold out.
