To get from London to Cambridge by train head for King's Cross Station in London. There are usually two trains an hour, with more in peak times for the commuters. One of the trains is a fast train, and the journey time is about 45 minutes, while the slow train stops at more stations and its journey time is roughly one hour. If you want to be sure to get a fast train then check the link below for the current timetable, though it's as easy just to turn up at King's Cross Station as trains are frequent and there's so little difference between fast trains and slow trains.
Cambridge train station is about a mile out of the city centre, which is the one advantage going to Cambridge by bus has: the bus station is right in the heart of the city. However, the much longer bus journey times mean that the train is still the best option. To get from the train station into the city, you can either walk in about 20 minutes, take a taxi (which won't be expensive) or catch one of the regular bus services from outside the station.
You can check the current times and prices of trains from London to Cambridge on the National Rail Enquiries website. You can often find the best train ticket prices by booking in advance online on the Raileasy website.
