Trains to Royston chug through the charming Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire countryside before coming to rest on a sweeping curve in this delightful station, built in 1850. An important stop on the commuter line between London King's Cross and Cambridge, Royston also acts an interchange for smaller stations further along the Cambridge Line. Trains to King's Cross can take between 40-60 minutes and trains to Cambridge as little as 17. Located at a junction on the ancient Ickfield Way, modern Royston is a busy market town peppered with historic buildings and award-winning gardens. The town's Roman roots are charted at the Royston Museum, and one of its more unusual sights is Royston Cave, a small manmade cave located in Katherine's Yard on Melbourn Street. There are theories that Freemasons and Templars once used it - for a chance to make up your own mind, visit on a summer weekend, when the cave is open to the public.
