Travel and Directions to Venues

Directions to Venues

The conference made use of a number of nearby venues.  All were well signposted, and student volunteers in blue hoodies were on hand to direct delegates.The two main sites for the conference were 
  • the Centre for Mathematical Sciences;
  • the Lady Mitchell Hall, where the larger lectures took place.

  The Centre for Mathematical Sciences

Most of the conference took place at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences (the "CMS"); the map below is zoomable using the mouse (see also this map).

The CMS is most easily reached on foot from Clarkson Road or from Madingley Road:
  • From Clarkson Road, follow the footpath to the east of the Isaac Newton Institute, turn left at the Gatehouse and the CMS main building (where Reception is located) is 50m in front of you. This is the route you are likely to use after Monday lunch at Robinson College; the CMS is just over a 10-minute walk from Robinson.
  • From Madingley Road, follow the footpath from the pedestrian crossing southward and turn right at the Gatehouse. This is the route you are likely to use from the Storey's Way bus stop.
  • From the Wilberforce Road Entrance, follow the signs for CMS Reception. You should not use this route, but this is where Google/Bing/etc. might direct you.

There are other entrances, but these are access-card protected.  

There was no routine parking on the site for conference delegates. However, if special circumstances applied, delegates were asked to email

Bus Services to the CMS

The Uni4 and Citi4 bus services stop in Grange Road (close to the junction with Clarkson Road) and in Madingley Road (between Grange Road and Storeys’ Way).

Taxis to the CMS

Taxi drivers are generally familiar with the CMS. We recommend that you ask the driver to take you to Clarkson Road and drop you at the Isaac Newton Institute. Then follow access instructions from Clarkson Road (see above). 

Lady Mitchell Hall

Plenary lectures were given in Lady Mitchell Hall (CB3 9DA, see map), which is about a 20-minute walk from the CMS.  Lady Mitchell Hall is most easily accessed on foot from Sidgwick Avenue, and can also be accessed on foot from West Road where the University Library Uni 4 bus stop is located.

Churchill College
The LMS drinks reception and the Conference Dinner were held at Churchill College (CB3 0DS, see map), about a 5-minute walk from the CMS.  The main entrance to Churchill College is beside the ponds on Storey's way.
