This official on-site airport car park is a 5 minute drive from the terminal building and shuttle buses run every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day. Automatic Number Plate Recognition is in operation so it is essential that the car you arrive in is the car you booked. Any changes should be notified before arrival. The car park has the coveted Park Mark award for full peace of mind. Transit vans are prohibited from parking.



Stansted Airport
Off Bassingbourn Roundabout
Thremhall Avenue
CM24 1PZ



Leave the M11 at junction 8 if you're travelling from the north and junction 8a if you're coming from the south. At the roundabout, you'll need to take the fourth exit if you're coming from the south, and the first if you're coming from the north, onto the A120 Thremhall Avenue. Take the third exit at the next roundabout. You should then drive down the slip road to the airport. You'll come to yet another roundabout, where you'll need to take the third exit. Shortly after, you'll come to the final roundabout and you'll need to take the first exit. After a short while, you should see the car park on your left.


Transfer from airport

Transfers run 24 hours a day, every 10 minutes and the journey takes just 4-5 minutes.


Arrival procedure

On arrival, please pull up to the car park’s barrier. It will read your number plate and open for you. If you have any problems, please press the button to talk to the car park’s team, but make sure you don’t push the button to take a ticket as you will be charged again for your parking.

Please try to get to the car park at least half an hour before your flight to make sure you have enough time.

When you’re ready, catch the transfer bus to the terminal.


Departure procedure

On your return, please catch the bus back to the car park from where it dropped you off. If you tell the driver where you parked, he will try to drop you off nearby.

Once you've collected your car, drive to the barrier and it will open to let you out. If the barrier doesn’t open, press the button to speak to someone at the car park.



The car park is fully covered by CCTV, including the entrance, and is patrolled 24 hours a day. It has also been awarded the Park Mark, a national security award accredited by the Association of Chief Police Officers.




Disabled facilities

The car park has disabled toilets and disabled parking bays. Transfer buses have low floors.


Additional information

You will need to give the car park your car registration number either when you book, or some time before you go. If you change the car you're going to be travelling in, you need to give them the new details.

"It was entirely trouble free and as expected!"

July 17, 2018

"Absolutely no complaints about the Purple Parking service.
My experience was entirely positive and I shall definitely use this service again.
The parking is somewhat over-priced but nonetheless competitive with what others charge."

July 13, 2018

"The open zones were quite full and the parking control weren’t to quick to open other zones"

"All process was perfect. I was able to park in a minute from arrival and bus came in less than 10 minutes. Also, upon return the bus came in a few minutes and left us very close to our parking slot. Also, the plate recognition was automatic both at arrival and departure and I do not have to present any receipt / ticket. Definitely recommended"
