Welcome to A.net!
Maybe you already have got that impression when your post received no replies: Spotting at STN
is veeery difficult!
- From the terminal building itself you can´t see much (or "almost nothing at all").
- Walking away from the terminal building in direction of the approaching cars might get you in trouble with the local security.
- If you have a car with you, there are two places to check out:
According to the location your profile I assume you will go to STN
via A12 and A120 ?!
Continue driving on the new A120 past the airport until you reach the last exit before the M11 (this one should have signs for "Long Term Parking" and the Stansted Hilton). Go into direction of "Long Term Parking" (LTP) and continue straight on when the entrance to LTP is on the left. Not too many yards from there people park their car on the right next to the fence (no guarantee that it is allowed, space is for not more than 2-3 cars).
Drive back into the direction of the airport. Exit to the left @ the second last roundabout (the one before
access to short term parking) and yield to the right (= driving basically in the direction of the terminal). There is a emergency gate on the left which is used as a parking and spotting space. Of course obstructing an emergency gate is illegal !
Anybody who has better information is welcome to post it here!
Carpe diem ! Life is too short to waste your time ! Keep in mind, that today is the first day of the rest of your life !
