By Train

Cambridge is easily accessible from London (King’s Cross or Liverpool Street stations), Peterborough for points north and west, and Norwich and King’s Lynn. Train schedules may be checked online.

It is just over a 1.5 miles from the station to the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide. There are taxi ranks at the train station. The walk takes you directly through the Centre of Cambridge. There are also several city buses (#1, #3, or #7) that run from the station to the centre of the city, which shortens the walk considerably.

Walking from the train station
1. Go straight ahead out of the station and up Station Road.
2. Turn right into Hills Road.
3. At a major junction with traffic lights go straight ahead into Regent Street (passing a large Roman Catholic church with a clock on your left).
4. Continue straight ahead into St. Andrews Street (passing Downing Street and John Lewis store on your left).
5. Go straight ahead on St. Andrew’s Street into the shopping area, ignoring Emmanuel Street which turns sharply off to your right.

(This is approximately where buses drop people off and so the walk could begin from here.)
6. Opposite the entrance to Christ’s College (on your right) go left through the gates into the pedestrianised Sidney Street.
7. Go straight ahead, ignoring Market Street on your left. You pass Sidney Sussex College on your right opposite Sainsbury’s on your left.
8. Where Jesus Lane leads off to the right you go straight ahead into Bridge Street and carry on as it becomes Magdalene Street, cross the river, and continue straight ahead (passing the entrance to Magdalene College on your right).
9. At the traffic lights turn left into Northampton Street.
