Travel

Cambridge is well connected to London Stansted Airport with regular trains from the airport direct to the city centre. The journey time is approximately 30 minutes (return fare £14.90).

All other London Airports (Gatwick, Heathrow) are reasonably well connected via London Kings Cross or Liverpool Street. An off-peak return train fare from London Kings Cross will cost £24.20. For further details regarding train journeys see: http://www.nationalrail.co.uk.

From the train station it is approximately a 40-minute walk to the Faculty of Music. There are three buses (Citi 1, Citi 3 and Citi 7) that stop at Emmanuel Street in the city centre, approximately a 20-25 minute walk from the Faculty (the bus fare is around £2). Alternatively, taxis are available directly outside the train station that would cost up to £10.
