Rail station to centre of town

by doofus

I was just wondering how easy or difficult it is to get to the centre of town etc from the railway station.

Is it really near and walkable?

Re: Rail station to centre of town

From the station to St John's College, on St John's Street, is 2 miles. If you google for Cambridge Rail Station you will find a link for "from here" to "to here" and you can get a good idea of what's what. In my father's undergrad days, he walked to college and ditto for post grad visits; when he turned 65, then he decided he would take a taxi if it was raining! So, it's not that near but as to whether it is walkable, depends on your state of health and mind and the weather!!

It's about a 20 minutes walk, no more, very easy to find. I've done it often, but I wouldn't like to do it with heavy bags. There are buses and taxis outside the station.

Many thanks for the info you guys. I think I can see and me and my wife taking the bus! Hope they are frequent and cheap. Any idea of the fare?

Thanks a lot.

Sorry, I've always walked, so no idea about the fare.

It is a 20 minute walk as mentioned, but hop on a No. 1 bus to the centre (This goes to ARBURY) which will help if you have bags to carry.

Travel Tips for Cambridge

Selwyn College

by AcornMan

Selwyn actually has one dormitory in a building separate from the main facility. The picture here is not that separate facility because I didn't even bother to take a picture of it. Unfortunately it is nothing like the traditional architecture of the original dorms, though I'll concede that I had a decent view out the window of my room.

If you ever have the chance to attend a summer program at Selwyn or any other college, I strongly recommend that you take advangate of the opportunity. I met people from all over the world and learned more during that one summer then during a typical year in college. And with only two hours of class each day, there's more than enough time to explore Cambridge and take in all it has to offer.

Take a look at St. Johns...

by steventilly

Take a look at St. Johns College.

Founded in 1511 by the mother of King Henry VII (see the line of Royal patronage for many of these colleges, especially among the Tudors). The picture here is of First Court, the first part of the college to be built. Behind it towers the chapel of the college, a much later addition.

Mill Road

by Winksc

A little out of the Centre is Mill road. Home to some of the most interesting shops, restaurants and cafes in Cambridge. Including Cheap Bike shops, Cheap computer shops, wine importer, Oriental furniture shop, Chinese supermarkets, Indian supermarkets. Wether you are a tourist or a newly arrived student or worker, the first thing to do in Cambridge is walk up and down this street.

Jesus Green

by barryg23

It sounds like some sort of preacher, or religious person but Jesus Green is a place-name in Cambridge. It's slightly north of the city centre, near Jesus College, and is a green area for sports, relaxing, lunch, etc.

One of my favourite pubs

by jrs1234 about The Salisbury Arms

Here's a place you'll find me from time to time, most likely on a Friday evening. It's in the Mill Road area, and generally pubs here are less busy than those in the city centre. It's a great pub with a good choice of beers, and a great atmosphere. There's lots of seating, a jukebox and they serve food in the early evening as well.

Look out for the bicycle suspended from the ceiling as a decoration!
