to get there
Buchan Street is a large modern spacious hall, north of
central Cambridge, just off Kings Hedges Road. Get there by cycle,
bus or car. Walking is not recommended from the centre of town, it
is too far. There is a cafe and
supermarket next to the centre. If you walk or take the bus or taxi
there will certainly be someone who can give you a lift back. So
you've just gotta get there!
20 minute ride from the
city centre. Follow signs to CRC
Kings Hedges and Buchan Street. Get the map by

2) Frequent but
slow with a 5 minute walk
Take the number 1 (every 10
minutes) from Cambridge rail station ( stop 7) via the city centre (St Andrews
Street stop S1) towards Arbury. For
simplicity, stay on the bus until Armitage Way - the stop after
CRC. Then walk 5 minutes along Kings Hedges Road. This bus takes 40 minutes from the rail station and
is rather tedious. My map
