The best service to use is the Blue from Trumpington which passes the church, most of the others go to near the bus station which is a 10 minute walk to the church.

If you are coming by train it is a 25 minute walk from the Railway Station which is south east of the city centre. Bus route U operates every 15-30 minutes from stop 8 outside the Railway station to Trumpington Street directly outside LSM, the journey taking less than 10 minutes. Other buses run regularly between the station and the city centre and taxis are also available.
