Travelling by Air

Cambridge Airport has some domestic services and facilities for charter flights. Stansted Airport is approximately 40 minutes by road from Cambridge and Gatwick and Heathrow Airports are about 1.5 - 2 hours by road from the College. Buses from all these airports run regularly into the City Centre. Trains run directly to Cambridge from Stansted (35 minutes) and via London from Heathrow and Gatwick. If you plan to take a taxi from any of the airports apart from Cambridge City, we strongly recommend that you arrange a taxi through a local Cambridge supplier – see below. Black cabs at the main airports are very likely to work out exceedingly expensive.
