Directions & Maps

The IRC in Nanotechnology is located in the Nanoscience Building at the West Cambridge site of the University of Cambridge. The location and GPS coordinates are as follows:

Nanoscience Building GPS Coordinates
11 J. J. Thomson Avenue 52° 12' 35" N
Madingley Road 00° 05' 41" E
CB3 0FF Elevation 22m above sea level

Travelling by car
In order to avoid the busy Cambridge city centre, it is advisable to arrive from the west by leaving the M11 at junction 13 (northbound). Please note that this junction cannot be reached from the M11 heading southwards.

Turn right onto the A1303 in the direction towards Cambridge City Centre. (see Map A). Continue along the A1303 (Madingley Road), for approximately 0.7 km, then turn right into J. J. Thomson Avenue (see Map B).

Subsequently take the first left turn and follow the road past the Computer Laboratory. At the end of the road, parking is available on the left hand side. The entrance to the Nanoscience Building is through the glass doors at the end of the path, opposite to the car park.

Travelling by rail/bus/cab
The CITI 4 (used to be 8) bus travels directly to the University's West Cambridge site and there is a stop outside the main entrance of the Physics Department (see Map B). This bus is free to holders of the University card; however, the CITI 4 bus does not pass either the railway station or the bus station. From Cambridge Rail Station, take buses CITI 1 or CITI 3 to City centre, Emmanual Street. Thereupon change to the Park and Ride bus 77 (heading towards Madingley Park and Ride) and stop at Conduit Head Road bus stop (near Merton Hall Farm - Map B) along Madingley Road. The entrance to the Nanoscience Building is through the glass doors at the end of the path, opposite to the car park. See the Stagecoach web site for bus times and route maps.

Alternatively, take a cab from Cambridge Rail Station and ask to be taken to the West Cambridge Site (Map B). The Nanoscience Building is just located on the northern perimeter of the Cavendish Laboratory.
