Cambridge is one of the most beautiful cities in Britain and is steeped in history and tradition. Acorn Guest House is ideally situated for a visit to both the city and the surrounding area. Cambridge is a city best discovered on foot and guests find our location ideal for exploring the sights. Acorn Guest House is located within walking distance of the river Cam, the historic city centre and the famous colleges. If travelling on foot to the centre, the journey is a pleasant walk alongside the river and across the greens. There are a number of pubs alongside the river. You may see crews of rowers on river and in the summer, you may see punting. For the less energetic, there are frequent buses from the bus stop located close by.
Cambridge has restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets and there are a number of varied eating places close to the guest house. We are always pleased to advise.
For business visitors, Acorn Guest House is close to the Science Park, Castle Park and St. John's Innovation Centre.
How to get to us
Cambridge is well served by local and national road networks. From London or Stansted Airport, the M11 provides the most direct route. From the north the A14 brings traffic from the A1(M) to the north of Cambridge. The west and east are served by the A14 running from near Birmingham to Felixstowe. It is easist to join the A14 and turn off at the Milton exit (near the Science park). Follow the road towards the city centre until you come to a roundabout (about 1 mile from the A14), turn left and then right at the next roundabout. We are just on the left.

Getting to and from London is straightforward. Direct trains to Liverpool Street and Kings Cross are frequent from Cambridge and take about 1 hour. It is also simple to get to and from Stansted Airport.
There are some direct trains from Manchester and Birmingham; these are cross country and can be slow. From the north, you will need to change at Peterborough and probably Ely.
