I'm going to be visiting England in June, and will be spending some time in Huntingdon. I'm wondering if there is a train from there to London, or if you could recommend some other transportation other than car. Thanks for your help!
Look at www.nationalrail.co.uk for train routes, times and fares. You might also be able to travel by coach.... www.nationalexpress.com.
There is an excellent train service from London (King's Cross) to Huntingdon taking between 40 and 70 minutes, depending on the train you choose. There are about 2 trains per hour and the cost is around £18 each way, but you may be able to get a better deal than that by buying in advance. In addition to the web site suggested above you can also try www.thetrainline.co.uk.
Thanks so much for the replies! I may come back often between now and June! My son and daughter-in-law were just stationed there, so they are learning the area too. Now I'm thinking I should find transportation from Heathrow to Huntingdon so that they don't have to make the trip to pick me up. You've given me ideas on where to look...thanks again!
Picadilly line (tube) Heathrow to St Pancras Kings Cross. 45 mins. Or Heathrow express to Paddington then Circle line to Kings Cross
You could consider the Airport coach service by National Express (see website in first reply) from Heathrow to Cambridge. This will take up to 3 hours depending on time of day, but by the time you have crossed London by underground it will take you almost as long by train. From Cambridge the coach seems to take an hour to Huntingdon, but if you were picked up in Cambridge you should be able to get to Huntingdon in under 30 minutes.
This may be easier than getting bags on and off three trains.
train - GNER, fast costs a lot
or WAGN, slow, relatively cheap
Take your choice. look at www.qjump.co.uk
