Travelling with Small children and infants

Foldable pushchairs are welcome on board, you can fold these easily away safely under seat, in the overhead storage or other storage areas. Pushchairs aren't allowed in the wheelchair area as we have to keep them clear for wheelchair users legally.

Our accessible toilets on board include a folded baby changing unit and are a private area if you want to use them for breastfeeding. Our stations also have accessible toilets and baby changing facilities too, just ask a member of staff to point you in the right direction.

No complicated station connections 

We’ve made it as simple as possible to get you and your bags to where they need to be. 

Stansted Express platforms at London Liverpool Street and Tottenham Hale are easy to access, so you don’t have to worry about carrying your bags up flights of stairs as you rush to make another connection during your journey to and from the airport.

Taking your bike on the train 

You can bring a folding bike on board, as long as it is fully folded. Unfortunately, we don’t allow any other bikes on any of our services.

From 1 June, Stansted Express and several other train companies in the UK will no longer allow e-scooters on trains.
