With Huntingdon train station only minutes away by car, and the fast train from Huntingdon to London Kings Cross taking only 45 minutes, London makes a fantastic destination for a day trip from Spaldwick. There’s just so much to visit in London, including the EDF Energy London Eye, the Tower of London, Madame Tussauds, the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and the British Museum.

Some Spaldwick residents prefer to drive down to Stevenage, park their car in the ample Stevenage train station car park and take the train for the short journey between Stevenage and London Kings Cross.
