From London, trains to Cambridge leave from Kings Cross and Liverpool Street stations. There are normally one or two trains each hour from both stations. The faster trains take 40-50 minutes.
Some direct services to Cambridge operate from Birmingham, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Peterborough and Sheffield. It is possible to change at Peterborough for services from Doncaster, Leeds, York, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow, though it may be quicker, though more expensive, to travel via London.
Trains also run direct to Bury St Edmunds, Ely, Ipswich, King's Lynn, Newmarket and Norwich. From elsewhere in Britain you will normally need to travel via London.
