Travel tips for visiting Cambridge
This summer is the perfect time to visit Cambridge.
The city has been making improvements since the lockdown was eased, giving pedestrians more space and making it easier and more relaxed to navigate the streets.
Drive into Cambridge and you will only pay £1 an hour to park all day, every day, so why not bring the family and take your time to enjoy our beautiful city, knowing your parking fee will be great value. If you have a Blue Badge, then you can park for free for up to three hours in all the city multi-storey car parks.
If you are taking the bus, then we have five Park & Rides open that allow you to park for free for up to 18 hours. The bus fare into the city centre starts at £3 with up to three children riding for free. Stagecoach, which operates the buses around Cambridge, also has a handy app with its ‘How busy is my bus?’ function. This gives passengers all the latest information and the confidence to board.
Cambridge is of course a great cycling city, many villages are connected to the city by cycle paths and in the city many streets have separate cycle lanes. There is also ample parking for bikes of all sizes.
Cambridge railway station is just one mile to the south-east of the centre and is connected by a number of Stagecoach bus services.
The Cambridge guided bus also runs regular services into Cambridge bus station from towns and villages to the west of the city, including Park & Ride stops at St Ives and Longstanton, and to the south, including Trumpington.
