Travel and Transport

Getting to Cambridge

Drummer Street bus station is about 15 minutes' walk from Trinity College.


As Cambridge natives are aware, the city centre is very car-unfriendly. There is no parking available at Trinity College, and the nearest parking places (Queens Road, Park St multi-storey and Lion Yard multi-storey) are extremely likely to be full on a Saturday afternoon in July. We strongly recommend you leave your car at your accommodation and walk, cycle, bus or taxi to the city centre for the wedding. If required, wheelchair accessible taxis are easily available through the main taxi companies (see numbers below), and can drop passengers by the main entrance to the College.

The main entrance to Trinity College is through the Porters Lodge on St John's St/Trinity St. The chapel is in the first courtyard after you enter through the Lodge, on the right hand side.


The Citi 1 bus service stops very near the Arbury Community Centre and can be caught from Bridge St, a 5-minute walk from Trinity College. Buses run every 10 minutes during the day, dropping to every 30 minutes until the early morning.

There is a taxi rank between Lion Yard and Christ's College, a 10-minute walk from Trinity College. Or you could call a minicab from Panther Taxis (01223 715715) or Diamond Taxis (01223 523523), both of whom are large and reasonably reliable taxi firms. The fare from Trinity to the Community Centre is likely to be 5-7 pounds.

There is a free car park near the Community Centre. Please don't drink and drive.

There is another event in the Community Centre before our booking, and we will not have access until 5:30pm. If you need to kill time between wedding and reception we recommend you spend it in the city centre, or the Carlton Arms pub (handily on the bus route to the Community Centre).
