The offices are located south of the city centre, close to the railway station, on the Hills Road bridge over the railway, as shown in the map at the bottom of the page.
There are flights from most European cities to Stansted airport, which is 45 minutes by bus and 30 minutes by train from Cambridge. The bus will take you to Drummer Street Bus Station in the centre of Cambridge. From here the easiest way to reach DANTE’s offices is by taxi. The train will take you to the Cambridge train station (see below for details).
Heathrow and Gatwick are an option if time is not an issue (the bus takes 2-3 hours and the service can be unreliable).
By car from London
The fastest route is via the M25 and M11 motorways. Leave the M11 at junction 11 towards Cambridge city centre, turning right at the main roundabout onto A1134 Trumpington Road.
Continue along this road through the village of Trumpington to a large set of traffic lights at the end of Long Road, and take a right turn (signposted to Addenbrooke's
Hospital). At the next major set of traffic lights, turn left onto Hills Road and follow the road up to the bridge. City House is on the left, with the entrance to the car park being just after the top of the bridge (the office block is dark brick with a large City House sign). Once you have turned left, there is a barrier with a buzzer to speak to the security guard, who will allow you in to park. There are a number of DANTE parking places immediately ahead and to your left after you enter through this barrier (numbers one-three).
The journey time from London is approximately 1.5 hours.
By train from London
Trains leave from Kings Cross and Liverpool Street regularly (twice an hour). The journey takes around one hour.
The office is within five minutes walking distance of Cambridge Train Station. Leave the station and walk straight ahead down Station Road, until you reach the bottom. At the main crossing, turn left along Hills Road. Cross Hills Road at the pelican crossing, then continue onwards and cross Brooklands Avenue at the traffic lights. City House is the dark-coloured brick building in front of you. DANTE resides on the second floor.
All visitors are requested to register at the City House reception on the ground floor for security reasons and fire regulations.
Arrangements for visitors with impaired mobility
DANTE’s offices are on the second floor of City House. There are lifts available and wheelchair access to the offices is provided. In the event of a building evacuation however the lifts will not be available for use, and the only safe exit from the building is via a number of flights of stairs.
DANTE have an Evac Chair available to assist in evacuating any visitors with impaired mobility. Any visitor who feels that they may require such assistance is requested to make this known to their host prior to the visit, so that a provisional evacuation plan can be agreed with the Health and Safety Officer, and the arrangements can be discussed in detail on their arrival.
