By Car

Entering Cambridge from the south, via the A1307 (Hills Road), turn left into Long Road/A1134 and left into Robinson Way (on the western edge of the Addenbrooke’s campus). At the roundabout turn right into Francis Crick Avenue (the new LMB building will be on your right). Follow the signs for the new LMB building visitor car park (first turning onto the LMB’s site).

From London, approaching Cambridge on the M11, leave the motorway at Junction 11 and follow the signs for the A1309 South Cambridge. From the A1309, turn right – almost immediately – on to the Addenbrooke’s Road (signposted Shelfords, Hospital and the Biomedical Campus). Continue along the Addenbrooke’s Road (go straight over at the Shelford Road traffic lights, bear right at the first roundabout and over the railway bridge).

At the second roundabout go straight ahead onto Francis Crick Avenue. The new LMB building is located straight in front of you as you drive along Francis Crick Avenue. Follow the signs for the new LMB building visitor car park (second turning onto the LMB’s site).

Using a satnav – The old LMB postcode (CB2 0QH) has moved to the new building. However until mapping systems are updated the most reliable postcode to use is CB2 0RE – this will bring you to Robinson Way, a short distance from the new building.

For maps to the campus, please see the the section at the bottom of the page.
