Where is Orton Mere ? Was there a settlement here prior to the arrival of the railway? Does anyone know which parish it would have been in during the 18th and 19th century Regards
Any idea if there are any concerts on in Cambridge, I love to hear the Kings College choir sing, but will only be in Cambridge from Wednesday next week, the 29th of January for a few days - it's a long shot I suppose.
I will be in Cambridge on business the last week of January. So only able to do any tourist stuff after 5pm - which I assume is mostly after dark in January. Are there any touristy things that I can do? I'm not a nightlife person really looking for more history or museum type things.

Which is the chipest way to arrive from London to Cambridge?
I've been to Cambridge so often that I thought I'd know my way around. But usually I walked or took a bus from the railway station to the centre, quite easy.
This time we're travelling with a baby and the weather forecast predicts a mixture of light rain and heavy rain. I've tried finding the right bus for us on the Cambridgeshire Transport website, but no luck. I suppose I'm too stupid to find it, so I thought I'd come here and ask you.
We have to get from the train station to our B&B in Milton Road. Is it Citibus 4? Or any other bus? I haven't been able to find a page showing all the stops.
We cannot take a taxi because they don't have baby seats, so it's either walking or buses.
Thank you for your help.
To get to London from Duxford at about 6:00 on a weekday evening, what its best? Should we backtrack to Cambridge and get the train there? Or is the Whittlesford Parkway stop better? Or is there some third point to catch the train back into London.
Ihope to stay two nights in either Ely or Cambridge. I would like VTers advice on which to use as base. My first idea is to stay 2 nights in Ely, see Ely first day , then 2nd day see Cambridge, back to Ely for night. Any comments. Thanks.
I'll be in transit at Stansted airport for 10 hours and someone recommended going to Cambridge.

Thank you for all your replies.

Has anyone out there stayed in De Vere University Arms Hotel? I can see that it's coveniently located near the train station, but is it also convenient to the other sights, i.e River Cam (punt), Queen's, King's University, etc?
If anyone can suggest a hotel/accommodation that is in the city center and is affordable, I'd certainly appreciate it. BTW, it's for this Sunday night.
Not looking to go gallery hopping, but am looking for nicely-talented local artists who do works depicting the Cambridgeshire-Suffolk-Norfolk area.

I'll be arriving to London Heathrow Airport T4 on Tuesday morning. I want to take the rail to Cambridge. How I can reach to King's Cross station from T4? I'll be carrying a med-sized bag on arrival, can I carry it easily with me? Or can I check it in the train to Cambridge? Can I use my Oyster card to get the ticket to Cambridge?
I have a midweek three-hour stop over in Huntingdon (train) and need to look good for an evening meeting in Peterborough. I don't need a cut, just a shampoo and style to make me feel less like I'm living out of a suitcase. I see there are several shops in the high street - what can you recommend in the middle-price range? As for brief tourism, I'm thinking about a walk to Godmanchester if its not raining. If it is rainy, where is a good cafe in Huntingdon?

I'm planning a one-night stay in both oxford and cambridge as side-trips for a London visit. Is a one-night stay enough to gain a decent appreciation of each town? Or would I be better off canceling one side-trip and extending my stay at the other town?

The next day I will be travelling to London, so far I know I have to leave Cambridge by train and stop at Kings Cross in London ... can someone please forward a link to the railway station website.

Any suggestions for a lovely day in Cambridge are most welcome.

I am planning to take a train from London King's Cross station to come Cambridge. I was buying the ticket from raileasy.co.uk site and was given two types of tickets - Standard and First class with 10 pounds price difference. If first class provides great comfort, I would go for that. Any word on this? Or there is not much difference. Please advise.
Hi, we're an American family of musicians (keyboard, voice) coming to Cambridge after playing silent film music in Bologna and looking for an inexpensive place to stay, or a famiy we could stay with and make some music! We know tons of show tunes, folk songs, and perform all over the US for silent films, you will be well entertained...
We love the UK haven't been in 10 years, are tightening our belts with the ridiculous dollar exchange (lucky you! come visit!) and hope we can make some new friends this time around.
Thanks so much

What train or transportation type do you recommend taking from downtown London to the American Military Cemetary just outside Cambridge? Please indicate travel time, and costs if known. What are the operating hours of the cemetary on Monday or Tuesday during the week.
Hello, I'm coming to Peterborough for a gig this weekend. Where can I go for a drink afterwards? It will be lateish, and ideally I'd love somewhere 'Rock'. However, if that's not possible I'd be happy with a nice, cosy friendly pub that isn't going to be blasting out chart music and serving alchopops to teenagers! Somewhere in the town centre would be good. Any tips?
While we are in Peterborough, is there anything else we should see / do?
the only way to see the bridge of sighs is entering saint john's college paying the ticket or is it possible to see it also from a part (street, other bridge etc...) of the city?
