Upwell lies on the A1101 road, the nearest towns being Wisbech to its north-west and Downham Market to its east. It was a place of note in British railway history as the rural tramway, the Wisbech and Upwell Tramway lasted as a freight line until 1966; although it had succumbed to bus competition for passenger traffic as early as 1927.[citation needed]
