Great St Mary’s is located right in the heart of Cambridge — in fact, all distances in Cambridge are measured from our front door. You can find us on Google Maps. We are hard to miss; we’re the big church between Market Square and the University Senate House.
Train: There is a regular service to Cambridge from London King’s Cross and Liverpool Street stations. From the train station you can catch a taxi, or any bus headed to the City Centre (especially the Citi 1, Citi 3 or Citi 7).
Bus: The central drop-off point for bus services is at the city bus station on Drummer Street, a five minute walk from the church.
Coach trips: If you are arriving by coach, there is coach parking on Trumpington Road by the Fitzwilliam Museum, on Chesterton Road, or on Queens Road. All of these are a short walk from Great St Mary’s . Download a map for coach drivers here.
Car: Very limited parking is available for visitors on University and College sites and in the City as a whole. Parking within the City is very limited, so please use Park & Ride sites instead of bringing your car into the centre if you possibly can. Information on parking in Cambridge can be found at https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/parking
