Public Transport Directions

The Botanic Garden occupies a 40-acre site less than a mile south of Cambridge City Centre, bordered by Trumpington Road (A1309) to the west and Hills Road (A1307) to the east. The Brookside Gate is located at the corner of Trumpington Road and Bateman Street and the Station Road Gate is located behind the War Memorial at the junction of Hills Road and Station Road. Both Gates are open daily. The Garden does not have any public car parking or coach parking. Groups arriving by coach are advised to download the coach parking map for Cambridge from the link left. There is pay and display parking available along Trumpington Road, 8 hour maximum stay, Monday-Saturday, 9am - 5pm. There are also a few pay and display bays on Bateman Street, 2 hour maximum stay, Monday-Saturday, 9am - 5pm. Blue badge holders may park in these pay & display bays free of charge with no time limit. If travelling by car, please use the Trumpington Road Park & Ride (off J11, M11, open daily) and ask to alight at the Bateman Street Stop, or use the Babraham Road Park & Ride, near the Gog Magog Golf Course. This service now stops at the train station only, from where it is a short walk up to the Station Road Gate. There is a dedicated Garden Bicycle Park 65 metres along Bateman Street from the Brookside Gate on Trumpington Road.
