The historic March station was once an important railway junction, with seven platforms and a number of lines leaving in different directions – it’s fair to say that the railway transformed the fortunes of what was once a tiny Fenland town. Most of those lines have since been closed, and only two platforms are currently in operation, but travellers still get a sense of that history in the station architecture. Today, trains to March include services from Peterborough, Ipswich, Stansted Airport, Liverpool Lime Street and Birmingham New Street.
The station is to the north of the town centre, with the High Street about a mile away. The walk along Station Road and across the River Nene will take about twenty minutes, and the regular local bus connection takes roughly ten. The market in March takes place each Wednesday and Saturday on Market Place, just off the High Street by the river.
