What is the best way to travel from Cambridge to London?

Cheapest way to travel from Cambridge to London


cheap

Buses are the cheapest way to travel from Cambridge to London, with daily direct connections leaving throughout the day. National Express is the only operator on the route, but they run plenty of buses. The first service leaves as early as 3:05 a.m., and after that there are departures every hour until 9:30 p.m. The journey takes around 1 hour 45 minutes, with no changes. All buses leave from Cambridge Coach Station, which is right next to Christ's Pieces, close to the centre of town. Park and Ride buses stop at the coach station, so anyone coming from the outskirts of Cambridge can easily reach their bus. However, for very early departures, it will probably be necessary to book a taxi.
