Travel by Road

From London.

The simplest route is to take the M11 motorway leaving at exit 12 (the second exit marked for Cambridge) and following the A603 towards Cambridge. After 1 mile, turn left into Grange Road past the Pelican crossing and take the first left into Selwyn Gardens.

An alternative route from London is to take the A1 north, leaving the A1(M) motorway section at exit 10 for Baldock. Take the A505 from Baldock to Royston, staying on the northern bypass of Royston till the A10 north to Cambridge is reached. Just south of Cambridge and north of Harston, join the M11 going north, and follow the instructions for the first route from London, leaving one exit later at exit 12.

From the North.

Take the A1 south, leaving by the A14 signposted for M11 and Cambridge. Join the M11 till exit 12 (the second exit marked for Cambridge) and follow the A603 towards Cambridge. After 1 mile, turn left into Grange Road just past the Pelican crossing and take the first left into Selwyn Gardens.

Please note that parking in Selwyn Gardens is restricted to resident permit holders Monday to Saturday 9 - 5 and Blue Badge Holders only. However parking is available nearby on Barton Road and Cranmer Road.


Travel by Rail

From London.

There are services to Cambridge from two of London's main railway stations. There are two or more trains each hour from each of King's Cross and Liverpool Street. The fastest trains are from King's Cross and take about fifty minutes. Cambridge railway station is about 2 miles from Tyndale House. To reach Tyndale House from the station, take a taxi, cost about 7 or 8 pounds.

From the North.

On trains from the North towards London, change at Peterborough for connections to Cambridge.


Travel by Air

There are three major London airports, Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted. Stansted is the most convenient in terms of location and amenities, but, although there are regular flights from Paris, Amsterdam and a number of other European destinations, intercontinental services are limited at present. There are connections to destinations worldwide through Air UK.

Via Heathrow.

There is a frequent coach service from Heathrow airport to Cambridge beginning at 3.30 am and ending late evening. The journey takes two and a half to three hours. The coach can be picked up at the Central Bus Station (for Terminals 1 to 3) or outside Arrivals at Terminal 4. If you have a lot of baggage this is the simplest option.
To travel by train, take the underground (Piccadilly line) to King's Cross (direct line), from where there are twice-hourly express trains to Cambridge. The underground service is very frequent and takes about an hour to central London. Do NOT use Heathrow Express, which is exorbitantly expensive and will save very little time because it only runs to Paddington.
By road, follow signs to the M25 and turn onto it in the direction of Watford, leaving it by exit 27 onto the M11 going north to Cambridge (or take exit 23 onto the A1 to follow the alternative route). The journey takes about 1 hour 40 minutes.

Via Gatwick.

There is a frequent but slow coach service from Gatwick airport to Cambridge. The journey takes 4 to 5 hours.
If you don't have too much baggage, it is better to use the direct rail link to Victoria Station in London. From there one can either proceed by coach from Victoria Coach Station nearby, or by rail, by taking the underground (Victoria line) to King's Cross, then the express train to Cambridge.
By road, follow the signs to the M23 north towards London, leaving by exit 7, turning right to follow the M25 East counterclockwise around London, crossing the Thames at the Dartford tunnel (where there is a small toll charge) and continuing to exit 27, signposted M11 (N) Cambridge.
