If I go by train to the air museum. What is the best way on the cheap to get to the museum?
Sorry, i have no idea. We were in our motorhome and drove from site to the Air museum, but its well worth the effort. Enjoy your visit
The best way “on the cheap” is to walk. There is a station south of town(Whittlesford) that is not too far from the museum and you can walk to/from there. You’ll be walking along a busy road and there is no sidewalk or footpath, google it first to make sure it’s worth it to you to save a few pounds though. But it’s doable.
Next cheapest option would be arrive at Whittlesford and call a taxi from there. If you can’t reach one, call the museum and ask them to call you a cab, they are very helpful. A cab from here will be much cheaper than a cab from Cambridge.
Sorry we drove, but there is a station about a 10 minute drive from Duxford.
Sorry I'm unable to answer that question as we drove.
Hi Jonathan, my personal advice is get a cheap day return ticket to Whittlesford Parkway. Get a cab - it is only 2.3 miles to the IWM about 6 minutes. Try telephoning Triple A taxis in Duxford on 01799 668166. Just an idea. Enjoy your visit.
We went by train to Royston then taxi to Duxford. Being a bit paranoid about missing my Dragon Rapide flight I prebooked a taxi for both directions which is a bit expensive.
There were plenty of taxis waiting at the station and the fare is a lot less, about 20 to 25 pounds each way. You can also ring for a local taxi as the numbers are readily available.
Uber has a bit of the market in Cambridge but not much in the small towns.
My solution was to take a taxi, which cost around 20 pounds each way. My son told me you may try UBER, if you are in this system. There is a bus line that connects the museum but it goes to the Trumpington bus station south of the city, ( watch for that if you pick a bus ) may be from there, you have another bus line to the center.. ( Parkside bus stop in the center ) .Taxi may be a cost, but it allowed me to stay all day in the museum.
Hope it helps
Hi, sorry I do not know the area and I came by car. I suggest you give the museum a call and they should be able to help you Also you will need the whole day to look around and take it all in.
