@Eastenglanduk: Cambridge offers business visitors a unique experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. It’s an excellent, central location with great access, less than an hour from London and several international airports, including London Stansted, as well as good rail and road connections to East Anglia’s main cities and towns.
