The nearest stations are Whittlesford, Royston and Cambridge. There are taxi ranks at both Royston and Cambridge stations.

On Sundays there is a direct Myalls 132 bus service from Cambridge to IWM Duxford. For further details please see the service timetable.
We recommend that visitors travelling south on the M11 take the alternative route, which will be signposted from Junction 11 of the M11, along the A10 to Royston and then east to the museum along the A505. Cambridgeshire Police will be operating a traffic management system on the M11, A505 and at Junction 10 of the M11, to ensure traffic flows as freely as possible. Parking at the museum is free.
