Travelling around Royston

Are you thinking about visiting Royston? Perhaps you already live in this great town but need to get around without the hassle of parking or the expense of petrol? At Arriva we know travel and we know Royston, so take a few moments and read through our carefully created guide to attractions and travelling in this great town.


Royston is surrounded by countryside and is situated where two Roman roads met, the Icknield Way and Ermine Street. The town is named after the Wayside Cross erected by Lady Roysia.

The town was a favourite hunting base for King James 1 who built a hunting lodge in the town.  

Today, Royston is a small market town with light industry providing employment.  Royston Museum presents the history of the town. Also worth visiting is the unique Royston Cave which is thought to have been used by the Knights Templar in the 13th century. You can also visit the stately home, Wimpole Hall, which is about 6 miles from Royston.
