Park & Ride Cambridge
Where possible we would encourage delegates to use public transport to travel to and from Cambridge. If this is not possible we recommend that delegates arriving by car use the following ‘Park & Ride’ facility.
Cambridgeshire County Council run a ‘Park & Ride’ service from Madingley Road (CB3 0EU), just off Junction 13 of the M11 to the West of Cambridge. Take the Universal/Route U bus (running every 10 mins between 0700 and 1930 on weekdays, and every 15 mins between 0830 and 1830 on Saturdays) and get off at the stop ‘West Road, University Library’, which is approximately 50 metres from West Road Concert Hall.
The car park has 930 spaces. It is free to park for the day (up to 18 hours), you just need to pay the bus fare, this is £3 return to the city centre and back. Tickets can be purchased at the machines in the car park using coins or a credit/debit card, or cash can be given to the driver.
