Churchill College is one of Cambridge University’s newest colleges (receiving its Royal Charter in 1960). Situated on the North West side of Cambridge, the College is set in beautiful grounds and has a fascinating history, housing the Winston Churchill Archives. It is staffed, as is traditional in Cambridge, by College Porters – friendly people in bowler hats who help with anything from booking a cab to organising a punting trip.

 

Travel

Cambridge may be a small city, but it is quickly congested and rush hour can cause sever delays across the city. No matter how you are getting to BoS Europe, please check travels times and allow for delays before setting off.

Parking
There is free – but limited and non-guaranteed – onsite parking at the College in the Visitor Car Park on a first come, first served basis.

Public Transport
Otherwise, the college is easily accessible by public transport – it’s a 20-minute taxi ride from Cambridge Train Station. For a local taxi firm, we recommend using Panther Taxis (+44 1223 715715), but Uber is also an option.
