Travel to DPMMS

The University maintains a visitors page which at one time was a good source of information for visitors to Cambridge.

Map

DPMMS on the university map. We are on the west side of Cambridge.

By train or bus

The bus station is 1½ miles from DPMMS and the railway station 3 miles. If taking a taxi, ask for Clarkson Road (off Grange Road); the entrance to the Centre for Mathematical Sciences is by the Isaac Newton Institute.

The Uni4 bus has two stops near the CMS site, but doesn't stop particularly close to either station.

By car

Parking is very limited throughout Cambridge. There are one or two places for visitors at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences; enter the site at Wilberforce Road and use the intercom at the barrier to request access.

From the North, via the A14

Leave the A14 along the A1307 towards Cambridge (don't go onto the M11, there is no exit at Junction 13 southbound). Enter Cambridge via Huntingdon Road. At the sets of lights at the junction with the ring road, turn right down the ring road. Descend the hill to the lights at the T-junction. Leave the ring road here and turn right along Madingley Road, toward London and the M11. Go straight ahead at the next lights, then take the first left (Wilberforce Road).

From the East, via the A14

Turn off at the exit for Histon, but follow the B1049 (Histon Road) towards Cambridge. At the lights at the end, follow the ring road through the sets of lights (right, left, right) and descend the hill to the T-junction. Then follow the route as from the North.

From the South, via the M11

Leave at Junction 13, and at the light turn right onto the A1303 (Madingley Road) towards Cambridge. Approximately one mile later, just as Churchill College appears on the the grass to the left, turn right into Wilberforce Road.

From the West, via the A428

Leave via the A1303 towards Cambridge. Approximately one mile later, just as Churchill College appears on the the grass to the left, turn right into Wilberforce Road.

From Heathrow, the Picadilly line tube takes you to King's Cross in an hour, whence you can take a fast train to Cambridge.
