By bus

There is a small shuttle bus that runs between Whittlesford Parkway and the Campus. Since this runs on a first-come-first-served basis, interested delegates should contact the Conference Centre for more information.

We recommend organisers who know they will have large numbers of guests arriving by train to consider putting on coach travel from the stations. We would be very happy to organise this for you.

Car sharing

We actively encourage all of our delegates and conference organisers to share journeys to and from the Campus where possible. If you are likely to be visiting the campus on a frequent basis you may also like to consider CamShare.

Arriving from the south:

Leave the M11 at junction 9 (signed A11 Newmarket) and take the first exit signed A1301 towards Cambridge. From the roundabout take the first left (about 800 m). At the next small roundabout follow the signpost left for the ‘Genome Campus’.

Arriving from the north:

Leave the M11 at junction 10 (note that M11 junction 9 is restricted and only accessible from the South). Turn left at the roundabout and straight over the next roundabout. Travel a mile or so on the A505 in the direction of Saffron Walden. At the next roundabout take the third exit (signed A1301 towards Saffron Walden). Pass two turnings to Hinxton village (these go to the village only), and take a right, at the next roundabout, signposted on to the Genome Campus.
