Trains to Cambridge

Cambridge railway station is an elegant Grade II listed building with a long, classical façade. The station is located on Station Road, one mile southeast of the city centre. As a result, it’s only a short walk from the old university city with its galleries, museums, and architecturally stunning colleges. Eastern Counties Railway first opened the station in 1845, and its design has been attributed to British architects Sancton Wood and Francis Thompson. Cambridge station has eight platforms including the third longest railway platform in the UK at 470 metres. In 2013-14, Cambridge station served over 9 million passengers, making it the busiest station in the east of England. Just off Station Road is Hills Road, a busy street packed with bustling pubs and restaurants. Winding cobbled streets lead to the town centre, where chic designer shops meet medieval spires and rolling lawns, alongside the waters of the River Cam.

Cambridge is typically served by Greater Anglia and Great Northern, connecting the university city with the rest of East Anglia and London. Routes typically take Cambridge commuters into either London King's Cross or Liverpool Street in the capital, with other connections to Ipswich, Ely and Norwich along other parts of the lines. CrossCountry also provides a service through Cambridge, taking passengers through to Stansted Airport or north to Birmingham.
