The Glass World Stadium is situated to the east of the B1049, just over half a mile north of Junction 32 of the A14, and as such is easily accessed from all directions. A map of Histon FC’s location can be found here
From the East: take the A14 and exit at Junction 32 turning right onto the B1049.
From the West: take the A428 which becomes the A14 (at Junction 31) and exit at Junction 32 turning left onto the B1049.
From the South: take the M11 and leave at Junction 14 to take the A14 Eastbound (Newmarket, Ipswich) leave the A14 at Junction 32 turning left onto the B1049.
From the North-West (Huntingdon): take the A14 and leave at Junction 32 turning left onto the B1049.
From the North (e.g. the Fens): The A10 from Ely joins the A14 at Junction 33 and then approach from the East. The B1049 runs South from Wilburton through Cottenham and on to Histon. The ground is on the left of this road half a mile south of the traffic lights by Histon Village Green, just before the bridge over the old railway.
After leaving the A14 at Jn 32 the B1049 goes north, with the Holiday Inn on the right and then climbs to go over the old railway line with trees on both sides. The Glass World Stadium is on the right hand side next to the recreation ground as the road descends the hill.
A limited amount of public parking is available at the ground on a first come, first served basis. The charge is £2 for cars and £5 for minibuses. Other car parking at the ground is for permit holders only.
Unfortunately Histon Station saw its last passengers back in 1970 when the Cambridge to St. Ives line ceased to carry passenger services.
Cambridge Station is about a 10 minute walk from Cambridge City Centre. The Citi 8 bus and the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway routes A, B and C (see below) connect Histon & Impington with Cambridge Railway Station and each service runs every 20 minutes.
To get to the ground from central Cambridge or Cambridge Railway Station, take the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway (route A, B or C) towards St Ives or Huntingdon or the Citi 8 bus service towards Cottenham. The Guided Busway stops at Histon & Impington outside the Railway Vue pub, just two minutes from the ground. The Citi 8 also stops near the Railway Vue, or you can get off at the Cambridge Lea hospital stop just one minute from the ground.
