If you fly to Southend
Southend airport is in Essex and is further away than some the other airports, but it’s so small that you will be in and out in a matter of minutes and usually won’t face any queues at security unlike at Gatwick and Heathrow. That’s why lots of locals choose to fly here. The train takes you to Liverpool Street via Stratford.
If you want to rub shoulders with the city’s most stylish residents then you'll love staying in this impressive apartment in Shoreditch.
