Public Transport vs Taxi to Stansted Airport from Wembley ArenaHi TT, I am going to see Roger Waters (brief pause for a YASSSSS) tomorrow night at Wembley, but I am flying back to Glasgow at 0840am the next morning for work (brief pause for a BOOOOO). Was going to crash with a pal in Brixton, or one in Finchley Central, but then thought it might be easier to just go straight to Stansted Airport from the gig.
It finishes about 11pm, and there seems to be (lengthy) public transport trips there at this time - my questions are:
Is it safe to travel at night? I live in a pretty rough part of Glasgow but still don't want jumped haha
What would the rough cost be?
Does anyone have any decent taxi company numbers I could use - I found "ATN Cars" who want £63 quid, if anyone has any cheaper options then let me know, though of course I appreciate this is likely the going rate, just seeing if I can save a tenner or so!
What is Stansted like to sleep in :0
Cheers everyone, haven't used this forum in so long but found it so helpful when I was travelling, thank you everyone who contributes to it xx

1Hi, I would do the painful (but much cheaper) journey at night - travel to Brixton, stay with your friend then hop on the Victoria Line to Tottenham Hale from where you can pick up the train to Stansted.
Alternatively, my brother-inlaw once pitched his tent in Stansted Airport without any problems...worth a try?!
It's perfectly safe to travel on public transport at night, and I would imagine plenty of people would be going from the gig to the nearest station. Depending on where your friend lives you may want them to meet you at Brixton station.

2A good private car service choice would be Just Airports. Wembley is in postal code SW1. The cash fare for a Saloon (sedan) from anywhere in SW1 to Stansted is £46.
