Travel by Air

Picture from Tyndale House

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 Dartford (where there is a toll charge of 1). Leave the M25 at exit 27 north onto the M11 towards Cambridge (see by road from London). The journey takes about 2 hours.



Via Stansted.

Stansted, London's third airport, 25 miles to the south of Cambridge, is the most convenient major international airport for Cambridge. There a direct coach service to Cambridge and the journey is approximately 50 minutes. There is also an hourly rail service, taking 30 minutes.

When travelling by taxi, ask for "36 Selwyn Gardens", not Tyndale House.
Taxi drivers expect tips, but not ones like "It might be quicker if you turn."
