Information about Cambridge

Travel informationTrain

Cambridge train station serves as the primary transportation hub, offering connections to major airports in the South of the UK via London. From London, you have two direct options: the slightly slower London Liverpool Street route with more stops (approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes), or the popular fast train from Kings Cross, taking around an hour.

For detailed schedules and booking information, please visit the National Rail website for more information. 


In the spirit of sustainability, we encourage all attendees to prioritize eco-friendly modes of travel and minimize driving to the conference, both to reduce emissions and to alleviate congestion within the city. However, if driving is unavoidable, Cambridge offers three main car parks, with the Grand Arcade car park being the closest to the conference venue.

For further details on parking locations and availability, please consult the Cambridge City Council website.


Cambridge is known for being bicycle-friendly, with dedicated bike lanes and bike-sharing programs available. Consider renting a bike or bringing your own to explore the city sustainably.
