For anyone interested in aviation history, this outpost of the Imperial War Museum Duxford, ten miles south of Cambridge, will make a great day out. It is Europe’s premier aviation museum and also boasts a huge collection of tanks, other military vehicles and naval exhibits.
Allow 30 minutes to travel the 15 miles by taxi; Duxford is a tiny village with limited public transport, so a minicab's your best bet if time's a factor. You can book this at the airport. Expect cost of a cab to be around GBP 25.00 each way. One-day entrance to the museum is GBP17.50 adult, GBP8.75 child (5-15). Under-fives are free.
Best known for being home to one of the leading universities in the world, Cambridge makes an ideal place for a day out. Whether you fancy trying your hand at punting on the River Cam followed by afternoon tea at Grantchester, attending choral evensong at King’s College Chapel or just wandering around the medieval streets and college grounds, you will not be disappointed.
Operator National Express runs twenty-one direct coaches a day from the station directly outside the main terminal to central Cambridge. Journey time is 50 minutes; GBP 10 one-way, GBP 15 return
