Two night stay at The Swan, poor check in on a busy Saturday night. Saturday night meal poor but pub was very busy. Really good refurbished rooms with a fantastic breakfast served by the lovely Joan. Many thanks to Walden Taxi for their help.

I think the easiest way is to get a bus/taxi to Stansted Airport - it's about 12 miles away. The Stansted Express train runs frequently to London, but it is a little expensive. Have fun!
