London to Cambridge

Is Bus, Train or  Driving Best?

The best way to get from London to Cambridge is by train. Even though the bus station is right in the centre of the city, and the train station is about one mile outside, trains are more frequent and much quicker than the bus.

The fast train journey takes 45 minutes while the quickest bus takes over two hours – and some take three hours as they stop at Stansted Airport and wait there before continuing on to Cambridge. Even allowing for the 20-minute walk into town from the station, the train is a lot quicker. If you don't want to make the walk, just take a bus or a taxi from the station. The buses are cheap and run frequently.
