Getting to the main venue (off Grange Road) by bus

Get any bus to the City Centre (every few minutes, travel time 5 mins) and buy a Dayrider Ticket (cost £3.00) which will cover both all bus trips in Cambridge for the day. At the City Centre find ‘Bay E’ and get a Citi 4 bus for Cambourne (on the hour and 20 minutes) and ask for the Clarkson Road stop.
The car park at the main venue can only be reached from the northern part of Wilberforce Road, by turning from Madingley Road.
