London to Cambridge
by Bus

Going from London to Cambridge by bus has its advantages, one being that it is usually much cheaper than taking the train. Another advantage is that the bus station is in Drummond Street, right in the city centre, while the train station is a mile out of the city.

However, the big drawback of travelling to Cambridge from London by bus is the long journey time. Even the fastest buses take over two hours, and the slower buses have a journey time well in excess of three hours, without allowing for traffic delays. Some late-night buses take less than two hours but this isn't much use to anyone wanting to make a day trip from London to Cambridge.

The slower bus services also stop at Stansted Airport, and this is usually a long stop while passengers unload or load their luggage, and in any case even if the bus isn't busy, it waits there for 30-40 minutes before travelling on to Cambridge.
