What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
The Department of Chemical Engineering is on the West Cambridge Site. There is no parking available on site. The Madingley Park and Ride car park is about a 10 minute walk away and the Universal bus that runs between Addenbrookes - the Town Centre - Madingley Park and Rise stops outside the department.
