Arriving by air

Stansted Airport is located just 30 miles south of Cambridge, is 40 minutes away via rail or the M11 motorway and is the most convenient international airport. There are also regular flights from most European destinations. Heathrow and Gatwick are both approximately 2 hours away by road or rail, and there are frequent coach and rail connections to Cambridge from all three airports. London Luton airport does not have such good connections to Cambridge but can be economic for a group of people to share a taxi from the airport to Cambridge.

Arriving by train

Cambridge is less than an hour away from London by train with frequent departures from King’s Cross and Liverpool Street stations. Eurostar services terminate at St Pancras Station, which is adjacent to Kings Cross. Some direct services operate from Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Nottingham. Cambridge Station is about a 25 minute walk from the centre of Cambridge, but buses run every eight minutes and taxis are available for hire at Cambridge Station.

Arriving by car

Parking is not easy or cheap in Cambridge but the Park & Ride services from several sites on the outskirts of Cambridge are quick and frequent.

Cambridge is linked to London and the M25 by the M11 motorway. Access from the Midlands and North is via the A14 and A1.
