Getting to Girton College

Last updated: November 2018

Girton College’s main site is situated just over 2 miles north-west of Cambridge city centre. It can be reached easily by car, or via public transport, taxi or bicycle from the city centre.

From the north: Approach Cambridge on the A14. Keep left past the interchange with the M11 and then take the right hand fork on to the A1307 in the direction of the City (Huntingdon Road). The College is 500 metres after the junction.

From the south: Approach Cambridge on the M11. Leave the motorway at Junction 12 and proceed towards the city centre on the A1303. Turn left and follow signs for the A1307 (Huntingdon Road). The main College site is 2 miles north-west of the city centre and is well signed from the A1307.

Cambridge is a busy city. Attempting to drive through the centre of the city can be very time consuming. Traffic is often heavy, parts of the centre are pedestrianised, and the one-way system takes some getting used to.

Information about Cambridge’s extensive park and ride system is available on the County Council’s website.

Information about car parking in Cambridge is available on the City Council’s website.

There are regular buses from Cambridge city centre to the main College site. Stagecoach numbers Citi 5 and Citi 6, run from Cambridge bus station (Drummer Street) and Emmanuel Street to Girton Corner.

There are taxi ranks at the railway station and in the city centre.

You can plan your journey to and from Girton College using Cycle Streets.

Information for those traveling to Cambridge from elsewhere in the UK and overseas is available on the Cambridge University website.
