Main Street, Stow cum Quy

Stow cum Quy is situated to the east of Cambridge.

From the north of Cambridge

From the north of the city, follow Newmarket Road, (A1134 the A131), until you reach the A14. Then, at the roundabout which takes you over the A14, take the second exit towards Stow cum Quy, (Anglesey Abbey, Burwell), and keep in the left hand lane. Follow the road for about a mile and you should start to see some of our signs.

The first first turning into main street is a right hand fork, then after few hundred yards you'll find The White Swan on the right side of the road. Alternatively, stay on the main road for a few hundred yards and take the next right-hand turn, and you'll see The White Swan to your right.

From further north

If you're near the A14 or heading towards Cambridge from the Northwest, follow the A14 round the north of the city and look for signs for Burwell and Anglesey Abbey.

If you're directly north or Cambridge, e.g. Ely, you can follow the A10 until it hits the A14, or take the A142 through Soham and either head in via Swaffham Prior or continue and pick up the A14 just north of Newmarket.

From the South

From the south side of the city, (Addenbrookes, Cherry Hinton, Fulbourn), head towards Cambridge Airport which you should pass on your left following Airport Way, before meeting Newmarket Road (A1303), which takes you over the A14. At the roundabout which takes you over the A14, take the second exit towards Stow cum Quy, (Anglesey Abbey, Burwell), and keep in the left hand lane. Follow the road for about a mile and you should start to see some of our signs.

If you're further west, or more central, Brooks Road, (A1134), takes you past Cambridge Airport on your right and then on to Newmarket Road.

From further south

If you're travelling from London or the south towards Cambridge on the M11, take the A11 and follow it for about 11 miles to Six Mile Bottom, then head towards the Wilbrahams on Wilbraham Road. This road will take you over the A14 then left onto Newmarket Road, (A1203), which you stay on for a few hundred yards before turning right onto Albert Road. If you follow Albert Road for half a mile, you should see the post office on your right and The White Swan on your left.

From the East

Most routes from the East will involve a strech of the A14.

From the Norwich area, you'll probably want to follow the A11 to the A14. Slightly further south and the A143 takes you to the A14 at Bury St Edmunds. Further south still, and it's A14 all the way.

South east of Cambridge

If you're visiting us from one of the may villages to the south east of the A11, you probably want to aim for the M11 or A11, (see From further south), or wind your way through the Suffolk countryside - particularly during the Summer.

From the West

Coming from places directly west of Cambridge, e.g. Wyboston, St Neots, Papworth, the A428 runs eastward and merges wiht the A14 to the north of Cambridge.

If you're further south towards Royston, the A505 takes you across the M11 and onto the A11. See 'From further south', above.
