By Train


Trains run hourly between Ipswich and Cambridge, view the timetable here


The train station is approximately a 10 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Fayre. Follow the crowds down the hill towards The Beerhouse pub and go straight over the mini roundabout towards Ipswich Street, which then feeds into St Johns St where you will find the start of the Christmas Fayre.


By Bus


Regular bus services will be running from Cambridge, Thetford and Norwich, as well as from surrounding villages such as Long Melford, Lavenham, Sudbury and Clare to name just a few.


The bus station is very central to the town centre, just a stone’s throw from St John’s Street and The arc Shopping Centre.


For more information on the services, please visit Suffolk on Board


RWSfm will be covering the latest in travel and parking information on Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 8am and 6pm, with an update every 30 minutes. Tune your radio to 103.3 or download the TuneIn radio app
