March train station has been serving the Cambridgeshire town of March since it first opened in 1847 and sits on the Ely-Peterborough line. When the station first opened, and for some time following, March station was a major junction with a number of train lines operating to, from, and through it.

Over time, the station has reduced in significance on a larger scale, but it is still a vital transport link in the Cambridgeshire area. As well as regular passenger services now operating through March, there are an increasing number of freight services in operation. The station originally had seven platforms, which has now been reduced to two operational platforms – though two disused platforms have been readied for potential future opening if additional services are introduced.

As a signal to the station’s interesting history, a Victorian ledger dating back to April 1885 fell from the station loft when contractors were refurbishing it in 2021. There are currently plans to display the ledger at the station to celebrate the history of March station.

You can get to March by train from all around the UK, with trains operated by Greater Anglia, East Midlands Railway, and CrossCountry. Popular routes on CrossCountry include Birmingham to March, Peterborough to March, Stansted Airport to March, Cambridge to March, and Leicester to March.

At March train station, facilities include free public Wi-Fi, a vending machine with cold drinks and snacks, toilets including accessible toilets and baby changing facilities, waiting rooms, bicycle parking, and a car park open 24 hours a day.

Things to do in March

March is a Cambridgeshire market town that is part of the Fenland area of East Anglia, which means that it has a rich and vibrant mercantile history as well as a unique natural beauty. Whether you love walking in nature, shopping and exploring cafes, or a bit of East Anglian culture, there is something for everyone to enjoy in March.

Once surrounded by marshland, March is a perfect place to stay when going on a walking holiday in Cambridgeshire. UK staycations are becoming more and more popular, so why not spend a weekend hiking or birdwatching in the Fenland and marshes. Accompany your trip with an overnight stay in one of March’s B&Bs and hotels. What could be a better way to spend your weekend than taking in the beauty of the English countryside whilst getting out for some fresh air and light exercise?

If you’re on a day trip to March with kids, a must-visit location is Fossils Galore. This unique fossil museum has a whole variety of fossils, ranging from Woolly Rhino skulls to Iguanodons uncovered by Fossils Galore’s resident palaeontologists. Fossils Galore always run a great schedule of activities and special events during school holidays to keep your little ones entertained in an educational way. If you have budding palaeontologists in your family, make sure to check out our suggestions for the Best Places to Find Fossils in the UK.

When in March, make sure to take a walk along the River Nene. With longboats lining much of the shore and classically English pastoral scenery, a walk along the Nene in March is the perfect way to spend a quiet weekend. With plenty of independent cafes in town, be sure to stop in for a warming cup of coffee in winter or a refreshing cold drink on hot summer days.
