Stansted for a day

We will be in the Airport for a day - Arr 10am leaving around 11pm ( realising we would want to be back at airport around 8pm ) what can we do? We will have spent 4 days in London (central) at the start of our trip so other suggestions appreciated - thank you.

Go to Cambridge - it's about 40 minutes by train or 60 minutes by coach

Chelmsford? Not bad for shopping. Takes 35 mins by coach. You can get a coach direct from the Airport bus station (X30 - the bay directly in front of you as you exit to the bus station). Here's a link to the bus timetable (£11 return)

Colchester is another option (just over an hour ) X22

Although it is about 20 miles to be fair (further than I'd originally thought).
