Harston is the first village coming south out of Cambridge on the A10 and has an excellent range of day-to-day facilities, plus exceptionally easy road links both into the city and south towards Royston and London. A new purpose-built, road traffic free cycle route has recently opened that leads over the M11, into Trumpington and on to the city. There is a regular bus service and the newly completed cycleway is a most useful asset, which runs alongside the A10 through the whole village. The Cambridge Biomedical Campus can be reached by bike in about 20 minutes.
It is the right side of town for the science parks at Melbourn, Babraham, Granta Park and Great Chesterford and Foxton’s mainline railway station to Cambridge (c. 13 minutes) and London Kings Cross (less than 1 hour) is within 2 miles.
Within the parish there is an Ofsted ‘Good’ rated primary school, a restaurant, doctors surgery with dispensary, an excellent local shop with Post Office counter, village hall, hairdresser, petrol filling station and a large recreation ground with a recently improved children’s playground.
