Getting there & away
Cambridge is well served by trains, though not so well by bus. Trains run at least every 30 minutes from London’s King’s Cross and Liverpool St stations (£17.90, 45 minutes to 1¼ hours). There are also three trains per hour to Ely (15 minutes) and hourly connections to Bury St Edmunds (£7.50, 44 minutes) and King’s Lynn (£9.30, 48 minutes).
From Drummer St bus station there are hourly buses to Stansted airport (£9.70, 55 minutes), Heathrow (£25, 2½ up to 3¼ hours) and Gatwick (£29, 3¾ hours) airports while a Luton (£12.20, 1½ hours) service runs every two hours.
Buses to Oxford (£6, 3¼ hours) are regular but take a very convoluted route.
