Public transport is a handy alternative for some trips to help you reduce your reliance on travelling by car. Whether you’re looking to travel locally or nationally, there are plenty of options available to travel either by bus or train.
You can catch a bus on The Street (A1101), at a sheltered bus stop roughly 500m from Sycamore Park’s access road. Alternatively, there are further stops along Holmsey Green that also provide regular services from Beck Row to Thetford, Brandon, Lakenheath, Bury St Edmunds and more locally, into Mildenhall. You can download bus timetables through the Traveline website and you can view a step-by-step guide on this here.
For journeys a bit further afield, Newmarket Train Station is approximately 21km from Sycamore Park, with trains operating regularly to Ipswich and Cambridge, for connecting rains to London Liverpool St, Birmingham, Kings Lynn, Norwich and Stansted Airport too. The train station offers step free access throughout with secure storage available for 12 bicycles as well as 12 spaces for cars, with an additional accessible car space.
There is a closer train station at Shippea Hill, although there is only one service available per day (Mondays to Saturdays) to Norwich.
