As the preferred accommodation is within walking distance of the conference venue and all debates take place within one facility, transport during the event is not provided.
Arriving by Car/Coach
We would not recommend driving to the Senior School except for arrival on Friday and departure on Sunday. Parking will not be provided due to the site being a city campus. The school is also located in an area with narrow roads which become easily congested. We would suggest picking up and dropping off at the Trumpington Road coach area, just south of the school. Otherwise, the conference venues and recommended accommodation are easily accessible by foot.
Arriving by Train
Cambridge Station is just a 15 minute walk from the Stephen Perse Foundation Senior School! The non-stop train service from London King’s Cross operated by Great Northern takes up to 45 minutes from London to Cambridge. Trains also operate to Cambridge from Birmingham, King’s Lynn, London Liverpool Street, Stansted airport and Norwich.
Arriving by Plane
If you are travelling from Europe, we recommend flying to Stansted airport. It is just 30 minutes from Cambridge by train and offers regular, inexpensive flights through Ryanair and Easyjet. Alternatively, if you are joining us from further afield, London Heathrow airport will most likely be the most convenient option. From there we suggest taking an airport transfer to Cambridge or take the train via London King’s Cross.
