How far is London Stansted airport to Guildford?

Wondering whether it's worth getting cheap fare with Ryan Air to go to UK from Slovakia. We will be travelling with 2 kids under 4?

It's a bit of a schlep. Guildford is south and a bit west of London, with STN north and east of the city. There are coaches that traverse the M25 and M11 from LGW to STN, but if Mr O'Leary's little airline offers you an 0700 departure from STN you'd v likely have to stay the night at an airport hotel to ensure you check in under his rather rigid terms.

The RAC route planner clocks the distance at about 85 miles.

Stansted is a trek from Guildford which is why I very rarely use it! It is about 90 miles by road including a long stretch of busy M25 that can take 2 hours or more on a bad day. I have spent longer sat in the car coming from Stansted than the entire rest of the journey from Spain.

No sensible public transport options other than going through London.

Gatwick would be a *much* better choice, what you save on fare you will much more than be paid back in hassle from Stansted especially with small kids.
