Living in the area

Other nearby villages include, Wootton, North Crawley and Marston Moretaine. Transport is important to think about when living in one of the villages other then Cranfield as you will almost certainly benefit from the use of a car.

Cranfield is is also just a short distance from the vibrant towns of Milton Keynes and Bedford, and only an hour by road or rail to London, Oxford and Cambridge. There are good transport links from Bedford and Milton Keynes to the campus, so these would be an option for those without a vehicle.
