The London Stansted Airport (STN) is the third largest airport in the U.K. and surrounded by castles, zoos, and gardens you won’t want to miss.
After travelling all day, give your legs some exercise with a trip to Mountfitchet Castle.
The castle is a recreation of English life in the 1060s—complete with catapults, free roaming animals, wells, and huts with thatched roofs. It’s a family-friendly spot, and a perfect activity for the kids to enjoy after a long plane ride. It’s also unique for being the world’ only wooden castle and village reconstructed on the original historic site. If you like the animals and want more of them, head to the Colchester Zoo. This award-winning zoo is one of the best in the world, and allows visitors to feed giraffes, walk through an exhibit of lorikeets, and handle snakes. The zoo is home to a wide range of fauna, including aardvarks, leopards, penguins, and a few komodo dragons. Prefer to be in nature and being mesmerized by flaura? Not to worry. Make your way to Epping Forest. Take your time walking through the ancient paths while admiring the knotty pollarded trees lining the dirt roads.
