American Military Cemetary Cambridge

by Cmorris

What train or transportation type do you recommend taking from downtown London to the American Military Cemetary just outside Cambridge? Please indicate travel time, and costs if known. What are the operating hours of the cemetary on Monday or Tuesday during the week.
Thank you
Chuck

Have you seen the official website at http://www.abmc.gov/cemeteries/cemeteries/ca.php
?

Most of your questions are answered there.

Also look at http://www.transportdirect.info for rail info and pricing. This is not the most user friendly site (perhaps J (leics) will pop in to remind me which one she uses), but on Friday morning (picked at random) between 7 and 8 a.m., there are three trains, taking from 52 to 69 minutes one way. The first one priced at 24.10GBP for round trip 2nd class with both segments on the same day, or 36.80GBP for round trip 2nd class with up to a month to return. These prices are from King's Cross station in London to Cambridge station in Cambridge.

Of course, if you take the train, you will need to get to King's Cross, and from the Cambridge station to the cemetery - note that the cemetery website suggests the taxi that are at the station. No idea of the costs...

Without being flippant, I note that there are two similar enquiries within two hours of each other. Maybe you should get together, to share costs! Website says cemetery is within 3 miles of Cambridge, so I imagine a taxi would be less than £10, not that I take UK taxis much.

Cambridge is most easily reached via M11.

Trains are from Kings Cross and Liverpool Street. King's Cross is quicker, by about 20 minutes, but choice really depends on where you're starting from in London.

I note that there is a commemmorative service on May 26th at 11am. There are several trains from either terminus which would get you to Cambridge comfortably by 10am. Fare is same from either. Advance purchase of return ticket usually costs £18.50 although there is one train at £14.00

Alternatively, you can get a coach from London Victoria coach station (picks up at other London locations) which runs direct to Cambridge Madingley Road Park & Ride. But I couldn't say how far that is from the cemetery. Day return is £10.80 but first bus doesn't reach there until 10:40am.

Travel Tips for Cambridge

Lunch at the Anchor

by Mariajoy

This is a lovely pub right on the River Cam where the punts are moored.

I had the aubergine and pasta bake with chips and peas and Petra had the tuna salad and it came to around 13 GBP. Very reasonable!

Lunch was followed by *afters* ! Petra had the hot chocolate fudge cake and icecream, and I had the toffee icecream sundae, for 3 GBP each. *mmmmmm* YUMMY!!

Take a look around Trinity...

by steventilly

Take a look around Trinity College. Founded in 1546 by Henry VIII (of the 6 wives fame!). Henry granted great wealth to this college, giving it land and property that had belonged to the monasteries, which Henry had dissolved (abolished).

The picture here is of the Great Gate of Trinity College.

Castle Hill................

by leics

.....is closed off at the moment. I suspect local skateboarders have been using and eroding it.

A typical Norman motte, its bailey now hidden by the council buildings, it's still worth a visit. Cambridge was originally centred on this side of the river (Roman/ early Medieval remains found) but moved to the other side when the colleges were founded. Many of the stones from the original castle found their way into college buildings.

Additional earthworks were added during the English Civil War, but these are no longer clearly visible.

American Military...

by steventilly

American Military Cemetary.

Between Cambridge and Maddingley (only about 1 to 2 miles out of Cambridge).

Here lie many of those American servicemen killed while stationed in or around Cambridge during WWII, along with those who died at sea on the Atlantic crossings - in total over 3000 graves. Also, a wall lists the some 5000 men who were lost in action and whose bodies were never recovered.

Photography stuff

by jrs1234 about Jessops

If you're looking to get some prints from your camera (digital or film), or want a photography gadget, or even a new camera, then it's worth dropping by Jessops. I've been getting my prints done here for years and always been happy with the quality. The cameras are not normally as cheap as buying from the internet, but look out for special offers on individual models - there are often good deals to be had. They have a good range of accessories - I recently brought a camera bag and they had plenty of different types to choose from.
