Finding the Department

How to Find The Department

The Department is located on the Old Addenbrooke's Site, in Tennis Court Road (which is in the centre of Cambridge). A rudimentary locator map is shown below. Links are also given to the University Map (look at the red pin marker in the image below).

Arriving by rail: Cambridge rail station is within easy walking distance of the department (15-20mins) and 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. Buses and Taxis are also available immediately outside the station building.

Arriving by bus: Cambridge is well served by National Express whose stand is alongside Parkers Piece, about 5-10mins walk from the department, these buses serve all the major airports. Within the city the C4 bus service 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; this service is discounted for university card holders. Other bus services stop at Drummer Street bus station, 5-10mins walk from the department.

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.
