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.

Arriving by Bus: 

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

Bus tickets must be bought from the bus driver and only cash is currently accepted. Pushchairs and fold up bikes only can be taken on the bus.

Information on bus services in Cambridge can be found on the Cambridge City Council website
