DIRECTIONS TO OUR OFFICES
The office is in Bishop Bateman Court on the edge of Cambridge city centre, close to the river and many of Cambridge's most famous colleges. The penalty for this historic setting is that access is not always easy by modern modes of transport...
Trains to Cambridge station
For times and fares see . From London the service from King's Cross is faster and more frequent than the service from Liverpool Street. From the Cambridge station on Station Road to the office is about 30 minutes walk or a taxi ride (fare about £7). There are frequent buses from the station to the city centre. Bicycle hire is also available. The Cambridge North train station on Cowley Road is a 45 minute walk from the office and fewer services stop at this station.
Buses and coaches
For services within Cambridge see www.stagecoachbus.com. Other operators provide services from the surrounding area and express/coach services from other cities including Oxford and Milton Keynes. Except for the Uni 4 service, all coaches and buses arrive at or near Drummer Street Bus Station, about 10 minutes walk from Bishop Bateman Court.
The nearest major airports are Stansted (trains and coaches to Cambridge) and Luton (coach service to Cambridge). There are coach services from Heathrow and Gatwick, but it is generally quicker to take a train into London and then the King's Cross-Cambridge service (see above).
Cars and deliveries
We recommend that anyone driving to Cambridge to visit us should use the park and ride services - see below. Car parking at the office may be available by prior arrangement - access is via Magdalene Bridge and Thompsons's Lane. There is no public on-street parking. If you need to drive into Cambridge, Park Street Car Park is just a few hundred metres from the office. Access to Park Street is only via Jesus Lane, which in turn is only accessible from certain other roads. You can also check 'live' the availability of car parks in Cambridge at www.cambridge.gov.uk/car-park-spaces.
Park and ride
For details of Cambridge park and ride sites and services please see cambridgeparkandride.info. For visitors coming from London and the south and west, the best site to use is at Madingley Road, adjacent to M11 junction 13. There is no exit from the southbound M11 at junction 13; visitors coming from the north via the A14 should therefore use the Milton site close to the A14/A10 intersection north of Cambridge or one of the busway sites.
