By train, it takes either 1 hour 20 minutes or 1 hour 30 minutes and you need to change trains once (Hitchin) or twice (Peterborough an Ely). There are three trains per hour and it costs 17.90 GBP for a single ticket, or 22 GBP for an off peak return.
The UK train ticketing system is notoriously complicated. It is usually cheaper to buy your tickets up to 6pm on the day before you travel than on the day. And fares are more expensive if you travel before 09:30.
On arrival in Cambridge, it is a 15-minute walk to the town centre, or you can catch a taxi outside the station for around 5 GBP. There is also a bus that runs about every 10 minutes.
To walk, exit the station and continue along Station Road, which is directly in front of you. At the T-junction, turn right onto Hills Road, which takes you towards the city centre.
