By Bike or On Foot
We are located in the centre of Cambridge. You’ll find us on Castle Hill, at the corner of Castle Street and Northampton Street. We are right beside Kettle’s Yard and only a 15-minute walk from King’s College. You can park your bike at the bike parks on Bridge Street or on Northampton Street.
There are no parking spaces at the Museum. Nearby Castle Street Car Park is often busy, but does have four Blue Badge/disabled parking bays. We encourage you to use the Madingley Road Park & Ride service if possible. There is a bus stop on Northampton Street, and it is only a short walk to the Museum from there. For more details, check the Cambridge Park & Ride website.
