Travelling to Greenwich House

Please use the bus, Universal Bus or bicycle to get to Greenwich House as car parking is not available for visitors.

If you have no option but to come by car you can use the Park and Ride at Madingley which is free, and roughly 20 minutes walk away.

Arriving by train

There are fast trains from London King's Cross Station to Cambridge every half hour, taking about 50 minutes. Direct trains are available to Cambridge from Norwich, Ipswich, Birmingham and also from Stansted airport. Full timetable details are available from Network Rail.

Taxis to Greenwich House are available from the station. If you wish to travel from the station by bus, see below.

Arriving by bus - Universal, Citi 4, X5 and Park & Ride Red 77

The Universal bus by Whippet runs from Addenbrooke's, the train station and Trumpington Street every 15 minutes and costs £1 per single journey for Cambridge University cardholders, £2 for others. Get off the bus as it turns onto J.J. Thomson Avenue, walk back towards Madingley Road, cross over the pedestrian crossing and up Madingley Rise to the top where you will find Greenwich House signposted.

The Citi 4 bus also serves the West Cambridge site (weekdays until 8pm only). A full fare is payable on the Citi 4 route, and this service terminates in Downing Street in the city centre and does not go out to Addenbrookes.

Alternatively, the Red Park & Ride Bus (route 77) departs from the city centre (St. Andrew's Street) every 10 minutes and stops close to Greenwich House, taking approximately 15 minutes to get here. If travelling from the centre, ensure you catch the bus to Madingley Road Park & Ride.
