Arriving by rail

Cambridge rail station is well served by regular train services to and from London, Stansted Airport, East Anglia and the Midlands, those arriving from the North of the UK will need to change at Peterborough.

The Department is within easy walking distance (20 minutes) of the station or, alternatively, there are a number of bus stops outside of the station.

Arriving by bus/coach

Cambridge is well served by National Express whose stand is alongside Parkers Piece, about 5-10 minutes’ walk from the Department, these buses serve all major airports. 

The Universal bus stops on Trumpington Street outside the Fitzwilliam Museum and the department is easily accessible via the footpath between the Judge Institute and Brown’s restaurant (see red marker on the map below); this service is discounted for University card holders (£1 per journey).  Tickets can be purchased in advance online via the app: https://www.go-whippet.co.uk/m-tickets/.

Arriving by car: note that Tennis Court Road is one-way northbound and must therefore be approached from Lensfield Road.

Driving in the centre of Cambridge is quite difficult, especially for those who are unfamiliar with the city. The city has a medieval street pattern, complex one way system and much traffic. The department has very limited parking, which must be booked in advance. Please use the five Park and Ride sites (which have over 4,000 spaces and are located on main routes into Cambridge) or alternatively use Public Car Parks. The Lion Yard and Queen Anne Terrace Car Parks are the nearest to the Department.

 

Other bus services stop at Drummer Street bus station, 5-10 minutes’ walk from the Department; you can plan your bus journey online https://www.traveline.info/.
