The EDGE Jamboree 2013 will take place at Sidney Sussex College at the University of Cambridge. This means that the conference itself, the accommodation as well as meals, will all be provided by the college.

The easiest (and often cheapest) way of reaching Cambridge is to fly to Stansted airport (Ryanair and Easyjet). Trains from Stansted to Cambridge leave every hour until 11 PM and takes about 25 minutes. Alternatively, you may fly to Luton airport (Easyjet). From Luton there are buses leaving relatively frequently (approximately every 2h), and the journey takes around two hours. Lastly, and if you insist, you may fly to any of the London airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, City). Then you would need to get from the airport to King's Cross railway station. Trains from King's Cross to Cambridge depart every thirty minutes (make sure you get the "Cambridge Express"), and the journey takes about 50 minutes. Tickets for all trains and buses must be bought in advance (the fastest way is to use the machines, so don't waste your time queueing).

Cambridge is a very small town and everything is easily accessible by foot. Walking from the railway station to Sidney Sussex College takes about 25 minutes (which is about the longest you'll ever walk in Cambridge), and a taxi would take you 6-7 minutes (and cost around 7 pounds). Here is a map. Taxis normally only accept cash. If you instead opt to take the bus from Luton airport, the walking distance is shorter; around 10 minutes (see directions here).
