By Train

Cambridge is served by trains every half-hour from Kings Cross, London (journey time approximately 45-55 minutes) and from Liverpool Street, London (journey time approximately 1 hour). Trains from other parts of the country are also available by changing at Ely or Peterborough. There is a taxi rank outside the station and the journey to Stow-cum-Quy is around 15 minutes. Please see National Rail for timetables.

By Bicycle

Quite a few people have cycled from Cambridge last year and they reported that it was manageable in about 50 minutes. If you're on a budget and don't have your own car or a friend to car-share with, this might be an option worth considering.

The Missing Sock sits along the scenic National Cycle Route 51. The route is described HERE, with an online map HERE. It is signposted with noticeable blue signs: NCN51_sign.gif
