HISTON Histon is justifiably one of the most sought after areas in close proximity to the City just three miles from the actual centre by fast road, yet pleasantly located close to some of the best countryside in the county. Close by is the Cambridge northern by-pass which conveniently gives direct and easy access to the M11 motorway, London and other parts of the country. The village boasts excellent facilities including a varied range of shops and bus service - including the Guided Busway linking the village with central Cambridge, Addenbrookes and the Cambridge North Rail Station. There is schooling for all ages, including the highly regarded Impington Village College, providing educational and recreational facilities for all the community.
