Menu->Transport->[Playhead|Active Mark]->..

or press left/right arrow-keys (for the playhead).
select-mark, press SHIFT+CTRL+left/right arrow keys.

'cscope' is your friend.

eg. search 'cursor_to_region_boundary' (from editor_ops.cc) to find
cursor_to_next_region_boundary(). Look-up that C-symbol and you'll find
the ActionManager registers it as "playhead-to-next-region-boundary"
which can be found in "ardour.menus".
