Top international destinations (in order of popularity) are Dublin, Alicante (Spain), Malaga (Spain) and Rome (Italy). The top three UK destinations (in order) are Edinburgh, Belfast and Glasgow. The Stansted Express runs every 15 minutes between Stansted airport and London Liverpool Street and takes 47 minutes.
