Homestay students need to travel independently to and from school for classes, activities and excursions. Cambridge is not a big city so it is quite easy to get around by walking, by bike or by bus. Bus tickets and bicycle hire is an extra cost and is not included in the fees.
We recommend that students use the local bus services. You can buy a 'Citi' bus pass (approximately £15.00 per week), which is called a 'Megarider'. These can be bought on the buses by asking the driver directly. There is a bus stop directly in front of Studio school for the Sir George camp. Studio staff will also be able to help you choose the correct bus, which will take you to and from the school or city centre.
This is the favourite and most traditional way for getting around Cambridge. Cambridge has many cycle lanes to separate bikes from car traffic and parks to cycle across, but we only recommend bicyle hire for sudents who are experienced cyclists in their own country. The cost is approximately £17.00 per week for a short-term stay, plus a deposit is usually needed. if you are a competent cyclist and confident about cycling on English roads this is a good way to get around the city.

Taxis in Cambridge are safe and a good way to return home quickly and safely. To take a taxi everyday would be expensive but sometimes it is the best way to return to the homestay after an activity - especially iif you share with other students who live in your area. A typical taxi cost from the city centre or the school to your homestay will be between £10 and £15 per journey depending on where you live.
On arrival at the camp you will be given details of the taxi company's phone number.
Airport transfers are included in the Sir George camp, from/to Heathrow, Gatwick or Stansted airports on Sundays.
Please see Airport transfers information for more details.
At extra cost, on request, we can arrange a taxi transfer for you from a different airport on a different day
