Due to its proximity to Kolkata, Raichak can easily be visited using a cab, bus or a private vehicle. Daily buses run between the capital and Kolkata. Also, regular buses are available from far off places like Shantiniketan, Murshidabad and Durgapur.
Though travelling by train gets you nearly everywhere in India, Raichak has its nearest station at Howrah, which is about 55-60 km away from Raichak. You will need to take another ride to the central city. But on the positive side, getting a cab isn't very difficult.
Travelling within the city is fairly simple, especially because a lot of places are huddled together. So hire a cab, probably from the hotel itself and get to your destination. You can also walk around in the nearby places or get an auto to drive you there. Autos are not very common but not very difficult to get either.
