Entrance to the Institute of Astronomy - car parking on right-hand side
Sat Nav Post Code: CB3 0HA will take you to the Institute, but is for the library-building entrance, which is not usable by the public - you should use the west entrance, about 200m further out of the city as shown below.
If coming from the M11: you can leave the motorway at junction 13,
but only if arriving from the south (similarly, when returning you can join only
the south-bound carriageway at junction 13 - junction 13 has access from/to the south only).
Travelling east toward Cambridge along Madingley Road (A428), take a
turn on the left into the grounds of the Institute of Astronomy.
If coming from Cambridge: travelling west out of Cambridge along Madingley Road (A428),
take a turn on the right into the grounds of the Institute of Astronomy.
On the map below, the entrance to the grounds of
Institute is at the bottom-left corner.
There is a car park on the right hand side as one enters the
grounds, and the Hoyle Building (where we hold our meetings) is the second building as
you walk up the hill. During winter months, you may want to bring a hand torch, as the footpaths are not lit.
