DISCOVER THE TOWNS BETWEEN CAMBRIDGE AND NORWICH


Comfortable, modern trains link Cambridge and Norwich up to hourly seven days a week, the ideal opportunity to see flat fertile fen, majestic forest or primrose clad cutting. You could even find yourself riding a train wrapped to promote visits to The Brecks. Between Ely and Norwich there are some pleasant destinations to visit too.
