From London, trains to Cambridge leave from both London Kings Cross and London Liverpool Street stations. Cambridge is a 50-minute journey from London’s Kings Cross and slightly longer from Liverpool Street stations. There are also good cross-country services from Peterborough to link with trains from the north and the Midlands. Refer to the National Rail website for journey planning information(see http://www.nationalrail.co.uk or call 08457 484950). Cambridge station is a 20 minute walk, or a short bus or taxi ride from St John’s College. A taxi from the station takes about 15 minutes, costing around £10.
The College is easily accessible from the M11, M1, and A1(M) motorways, and the A14. Parking on site is limited, and available only by prior arrangement. If you wish to park in one of the College’s parking lots then you must make arrangements prior to arrival as space is very limited. There is a public multi-story parking garage in Park Street, adjacent to the College.
