A quick question re Cambridge. 11:48 - Oct 11 with 1663 viewsBluebell

Anyone know the best place to park? How far from the station is the ground if we decide to go by train?

Before anyone suggests the Ground Guide, I have looked at that, but not knowing Cambridge it’s difficult to work out distances.

Thank you.

Other than the stock answer of Gatwick, I’d suggest the Newmarket Road Park & Ride site. It’s a reasonable walk but you can always jump on the bus which goes every 10 minutes and passes the ground. Avoid the city centre car parks as the prices are extortionate and it’s a pain to get away after the game

It's about a 45 min walk from Newmarket Road Park and Ride, which is then the right side of Cambridge for getting away to Ipswich so may be wrong side for you!

Do not park in Cambridge whatever you do, you can get an all inclusive in the Maldives for the same price as 6 hours in a Car Park there.

Park and Ride on Newmarket Rd, it's only a short bus ride to the ground, without the need to go into Cambridge.

If you get there early enough, I think you can still park on the grass verges on Barnwell Road which is a 10 minute walk.

Distortion becomes somehow pure in its wildness.

it would actually be cheaper to park at Gatwick and then get a cab to Cambridge, than by popping into a local car park.

Forget the park and ride suggestion.

Keep going past that and turn right at the McDonalds roundabout and park in the housing estate there. (or even left at the Maccy's and first right if the traffic is heavy)

Saves you a good 25mins walk.

But will add on a tonne of time getting in and out before & after the game, not accounting for any ‘damage” parking on the lovely council estate streets

Doubtful. Newmarket Rd flows fine these days away from town and I have not heard any reports of damage to any vehicles.

Its where I will be parking.

Last time I drove to Cambridge for an evening match in the early 90s, had my car towed which turned out to be very expensive mistake. To get my car out cost more than it was worth, but I wasn't in a position to get home without it.

So just be super careful of the local parking regs - the traffic wardens are "on it" shall we say.

Yep, this is the one. Ditton Walk end of Wadloes Road which is right turn at macdonalds. I lived on Ditton Walk for 12 years and have often walked that way on matchdays and people still pulling up to park with half hour to go. Big wide road with no restrictions.

The train station walk isnt crazy - 30 mins and lots of good neighbourhood pubs halfway around Mill Road - Salisbury arms, Devonshire arms, Calverys brewery etc and then last 10 mins of walk through the common.

If you are coming by car I would recommend getting off the A14 at junction 33 (science park) parking in Chesterton near the Haymakers pub (fantastic pub), where it's free and making the 10 minute walk to the ground over the green dragon bridge. That part of Cambridge is mainly fair game for parking but exhibit common sense. The other side of the river is tougher and park and ride is less stressful as others may have experienced.

This will be 1,000 times easier, will take the same time and be entirely free. I've commuted in for nearly a decade and cycled basically every street in the city.

Cambridge has Uber. I'd recommend that from the station.

The tow-away was scrapped long ago but the wardens will be out in force no doubt.

Not sure if still allowed but years ago the Abbey Leisure Complex (as it's known now) was a good option for free parking.

45 minutes????? It always takes me a couple of hours, though that might be in part due to the Devonshire Arms...

Last time I walked it I had an 8 year old in tow, so that might have made a difference to my time. Don’t think he’d have approved of a pub crawl on the way 😂

If you’re going to go via train a little tip get a connection at Cambridge for Cambridge North station (on the line to Ely), it’s much less of a walk to the stadium from there

Bluebell - town fan living in Cambridge. The walk from the station is easy. You can walk across coldhams common 20 / 25 minutes? Head over the cycle bridge at the station, up to mill road, down Sedgwick street to Cromwell road and then follow the crowd. If you fancy a detour around mill road you could try the Cambridge blue - the petersfield - or the Alexandra arms. I think you can still park resident free on Cromwell road and other roads around there if you wanted to drive and walk. I’d say I’ll see you there but I couldn’t get a ticket. Enjoy.
