Getting Here and Around in Cambridge


Getting Here and Around

Good bus (three hours) and train (one hour) services connect London and Cambridge. The long-distance bus terminal is on Drummer Street, very close to Emmanuel and Christ’s colleges. Several local buses connect the station with central Cambridge, including the frequent Citi 7 and 8 services, although any bus listing City Centre or Emmanuel Street among its stops will do. The journey takes just under 10 minutes. If you're driving, don't attempt to venture very far into the center—parking is scarce and pricey. The center is amenable to explorations on foot, or you could join the throng by renting a bicycle.

Stagecoach sells Dayrider (£3.70) tickets for all-day bus travel within Cambridge, and Megarider tickets (£12.50) for seven days of travel within the city. You can extend these to cover the whole county of Cambridgeshire (£5.70 and £22.50, respectively). Buy any of them from the driver.


City Sightseeing operates open-top bus tours of Cambridge—the Backs, the colleges, the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, and the Grafton shopping center. Tours can be joined at marked bus stops in the city. Tickets are £13. Also ask the tourist office about tours.
