Cambridge is well served by local and national road networks. From London or Stansted Airport, the M11 provides the most direct route. From the north the A14 brings traffic from the A1(M) to the north of Cambridge. The west and east are served by the A14 running from near Birmingham to Felixstowe. It is easist to join the A14 and turn off at the Milton exit (near the Science park). Follow the road towards the city centre until you come to a roundabout (about 1 mile from the A14), turn left and then right at the next roundabout. We are just on the left.
Getting to and from London is straightforward. Direct trains to Liverpool Street and Kings Cross are frequent from Cambridge and take about 1 hour. It is also simple to get to and from Stansted Airport.
There are some direct trains from Manchester and Birmingham; these are cross country and can be slow. From the north, you will need to change at Peterborough and probably Ely.
To search for train times, visit the Railtrack web site and then click on "timetable".
