Getting about during your stay
The rail service between London and Cambridge is excellent, and you can be in the centre of London within 50 minutes of leaving Cambridge, with trains scheduled until late.
The rail and bus service to the London airports is also excellent, and there are buses which go regularly to Oxford and other destinations of interest. You may also find our page on Living in Cambridge helpful, which has information on local transport.
"I had a tour of the grounds and had all my questions answered. And staff and students were very welcoming and helped me understand how Ridley functioned and where everything was." Dr Timothy Gombis, New Testament Professor, Grand Rapids, MI

- Medical care
Should you need medical care while here there is a doctors' surgery right next door to the college and the local hospital is a world class teaching facility. If you are travelling from overseas, health insurance must, however, be arranged before you arrive, as there is a cost involved.

Cambridge has more than double the national average Christian commitment, and an unusually large number and diversity of churches in and around the city, with 80 churches and chapels, around half of which are Anglican. There is a wide diversity of places of worship within walking distance of Ridley, including King's College Chapel, where choral services are held daily in term-time.
