There is a train service through London every 30 minutes, changing at Liverpool St and Marylebone, total time about 3 hours. This involves using the London underground (stairs / escalators). See …nationalrail.co.uk/en/s/timetable/details… for details,

The quickest route will involve three changes:

Stansted Express to Tottenham Hale station

Change there for Victoria line of the Underground to Oxford Circus

Change there for Bakerloo line of the Underground to Marylebone

Train from Marylebone to Banbury

That should take about 2h45m

There is a route with just one change, but it takes much longer - about 3h30m:

National Express coach (bus) 727 from Stansted to Heathrow Central bus station

From there, National Express coach 210 (destination Wolverhampton) to Banbury.

I'm thinking that for that number hiring a bus (with driver) is going to be the quickest and cheapest way.

Unfortunately I've no idea on how to set about it. Maybe your hotel in Banbury can recommend a local company that would come to Stansted to you?

That's a very good idea. I'd guess that a hired mini-bus/coach would take about 2.5 hours to go down the M11, round the M25 and up the M40.

There's a list of companies here from Banbury that might be suitable: http://www.banbury-cross.co.uk/mocoaches.htm - I have no experience of them. (Cheney Coaches looks hopeful - as dzug says, perhaps your hotel or host have heard of them?)
