By car

Please note that car parking for visitors is strictly limited and should be prearranged through your host. There is a nearby park and ride site on Madingley Road.

  1. Going north on the M11 from London/Stansted, leave the M11 at Junction 13, and turn right towards Cambridge.
  2. If travelling from north of Cambridge, drive south on the A14 and continue going south onto the M11. Because it is not possible to leave the M11 at junction 13 when travelling south, you should continue along the M11 to junction 12 (Cambridge, Wimpole and Barton), and double back, by negotiating the roundabouts to re-join the motorway going north so that you can take the exit to Cambridge at junction 13 as above.
  3. Take the third turning on the right (JJ Thomson Avenue – signed to the Cavendish Laboratory).
  4. Take the first left, before the William Gates Building.
  5. Follow the road around, past the Microsoft building (on the left). The Electrical Engineering building is immediately after, on your left – it has afountain outside.
  6. There is a small visitors’ car park in front of the Electrical Engineering building.
