How to get to Christ's

By Rail

There are direct connections  to Cambridge railway station from both London, Liverpool Street and London, Kings Cross mainline stations.

When travelling by rail from the northwest, it is normally necessary to change at either Peterborough and/or Ely.

There are frequent bus services from Cambridge railway station to the city centre (Drummer Street Bus Station, which is adjacent to the College), or taxis are also available at the station

By Coach

National Express long distance coach services  terminate at Parkside, on the Northern side of Parkers Piece.  Christ's is only a few minutes walk from the terminal.

The X5 service (from Oxford, via Milton Keynes) terminates in Drummer Street bus station

By Road

Parking in Cambridge city centre car parks can be difficult and is also expensive. There are several Park and Ride sites located outside the city centre and it is recommended that visitors use these facilities whenever possible.  Details of Park and Ride sites,  city centre car parks and parking charges can be found on the City Council's website

The College has very limited on-site parking facilities, which are invariably full to capacity in term.  The College car park may only be used by visitors with the permission of the Director of College Services.


Road approaches to Cambridge can be seen  HERE.

The College main gate and Porters' Lodge are located on St Andrew's Street and its location can be seen HERE.

Please note that there is now a one way system in operation preventing direct access to St Andrew's Street from Regent Street. All vehicles except for buses and taxis heading North up Regent Street are now forced to turn right into  Park Terrace, left into  Parkside / Drummer Street and then left again into Emmanuel Street.   At the end of Emmanuel Street, turn right into St Andrew's Street.

Please also note that  Hobson Street is one way,  with no entry permitted from the King Street end, so it is not possible to access the College car park from King Street.  Satellite navigation systems are not always aware of this restriction.

A representational map  showing the layout of the College, with staircases and public rooms identified can be found HERE
