This is the service station virtually inside Stansted Airport. For the Welcome Break by the large roundabout above the M11, see Birchanger Green.
Stansted services is a small, retail park-style facility surrounded by car parks serving Stansted Airport. It is so close to Birchanger that the signs at the Priory Wood Roundabout give drivers a choice of both services.
Free parking is provided for customers using the facilities only. Owing to the proximity of the airport, rules are very strictly enforced and you should check the signs before leaving your vehicle.
Free parking is limited to 30 minutes at BP, 60 minutes with the option to pay for more at McDonald's and Starbucks. Parking and then walking elsewhere (even if you're just walking from Starbucks to McDonald's), or parking outside of a marked bay, will result in a charge (fine) being issued.

Trivia and History
The hotels here are positioned to serve the airport.
The A120 here only opened in 2003, with the land here being identified for future development. The development was called Southgate Park, but this name is rarely used, given the famous airport positioned next door. The BP opened in 2004, the Holiday Inn in 2005, the McDonald's in 2009, the Starbucks in 2010 and the Premier Inn in 2011.
This service station can only be accessed by driving on airport land. This is not a public right of way, but it does mean that vehicles working for Stansted Airport can access the facilities, which are subject to different regulations.
Two shed-like buildings in the car park serve street food during the daytime.
