Churchill College is one of 31 Colleges that comprise the University of Cambridge. Founded in 1960, it is a 15 minute walk from the centre of Cambridge. Despite the concentration of hi-tech and science industries around Cambridge, the centre still retains the atmosphere of a small town, renowned for the many university colleges and places of interest. Further information about Cambridge and alternative accommodation can be found at: www.visitcambridge.org.
Travel to Cambridge is convenient by road or rail. Churchill College is on Storey's Way, off the A1303, one mile west of the city centre and close to the M11 motorway. There are frequent train services to Cambridge from London King's Cross and Liverpool Street stations. The nearest international airport is London Stansted (30 miles) which has rail and coach links to Cambridge. From London Heathrow and Gatwick airports, there are express rail links to central London for onward rail journeys as above. There are also coach links from both airports to Cambridge (one change).
