View Oxbridge Tours, Cambridge departure point in a larger map
All tours will depart from the Corpus Clock, unless otherwise arranged. This is a large golden clock on the corner of King’s Parade and St Benet’s Street. It is diagonally opposite King’s Chapel and next to The Cambridge Chop House restaurant.
Coming by car: Cambridge is a medieval town with Twenty-First Century traffic. We recommend that you make use of the Park & Ride facilities, which are found on every main road into the city. The buses from these car parks will take you directly into town (see coming by public bus below).
Alternately you can park at the Grand Arcade, a multi-story in the centre of the City. This is well sign posted, and the electronic boards around town will let you know how many spaces are left. Once parked, go into the shopping centre and take the Petty Curry exit. Turn left onto the market square, then take the second left and onto St Benet’s Street. (going behind the Guildhall). You should then be on St Benet’s Street. Walk down past the Eagle pub, to the meeting point at the Corpus Clock.
Coming by train: The station is around 1 mile from the city centre. From the train station either take a taxi into town (the cheaper option if there are more than 3 in your group) or take the bus. This departs from opposite the station's main entrance.
Coming by private coach: Coaches usually stop on the corner of Queen’s Road and Silver Street on the river side of the road (alongside the park). For large groups we can arrange for our guides to meet you here. We can put you in touch with local coach companies if you require transport.
Coming by public bus: Get off the bus at St Andrew’s St stop, opposite the HSBC Bank. Turn right when you step off the bus and walk around the corner past The Church of St Andrew the Great, bearing left. You should now be walking along Petty Curry, a busy high street lined with shops. Keep walking until you reach the market square. Take the second left behind the Guildhall past Cath Kidston (right) and Jamie’s Italian (left) until you reach St Benet’s Street. Continue to the Corpus Clock at the end of the road.
