This tour begins outside the gates of King's College, on King's Parade. King's Parade, Cambridge CB2 1ST, UK. Cambridge is well connected by train, and fast trains from London Kings Cross take under an hour. From the train station you can take buses 1 or 7 into the center of town. It is then a five minute walk to King's College. Anyone in Cambridge will be able to give you directions to King's College, but be sure to ask for directions to King's and not for 'The University'. The University is made up of hundreds of buildings spread over the city and you may get pointed towards an uninspiring outpost.
