Alternatively, it would take you approximately 25 minutes to cycle to Huntingdon train station and secure, sheltered cycle parking is provided free of charge at the station.
Car parking is available at Huntingdon station for £5.80 per day (correct as of May 2016) – which of course could be less if you have a car share partner.
