Where are you flying to as Stansted is 60 miles north of London and Southampton similar to the south?

When are you travelling as the answer at weekends may be different from during the week - and different weekends will have different answers.

And how long will you have to make the journey?

As for cheapest - at a guess Megabus train to Waterloo, Tube to Victoria, then National Express or Terravision coach to Stansted. But that would probably take around 4 hours, you could shave some of that by doing trains all the way via Waterloo & Liverpool Street stations

It's not cheap and not easy. This journey takes about 5 hours and I strongly recommend avoiding it if you can. Can you fly from Southampton or Bournemouth to wherever you are going? Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham and Bristol airports all much easier to get to than Stansted.

Your choices by public transport are convoluted . I would consider getting bus to Heathrow or train to Gatwick and an onward connection from there. This avoids crossing central London. Still epic though.

Or look into one way car hire.

"This journey takes about 5 hours"

It takes just over three hours, not five. And it's not such a bad journey (I take a similar journey on a fairly regular basis). Train to Waterloo (1:20 hours), Tube to Liverpool Street, train from there to Stansted (45 minutes)

I usually take the Waterloo and City Line to Bank (one stop) and the Central Line from there to Liverpool Street (also one stop), but this involves a fair bit of walking at Bank. Nationalrail gives an alternative option of Bakerloo to Oxford Circus and Central Line from there - seems a bit of a detour but probably involves less walking.

Last minute frequent flier seats back to JFK routing from Stansted via Berlin Air.
