Where is the Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre (JCBC)?
The Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre is located on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus which is home to a number of institutions and organisations including 12 Academic Departments in the School of Clinical Medicine, the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology (MRC LMB) and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH), Royal Papworth Hospital and the Rosie Maternity Hospital.
Unfortunately, there is no on-site parking available for our visitors. Visitors can use one of the hospital’s patient and visitor car parks. The nearest is car park 1 (charges apply).
There are 2 Park and Ride sites servicing the Addenbrookes Hospital Campus, providing free parking for up to 18 hours. These are located on Trumpington Road and Babraham Road. From the Trumpington Road site, buses depart at 15 minute intervals with a journey time of 6-7 minutes. From the Babraham Road site, buses depart at 10 minute intervals with a journey time of 5-6 minutes.
Further information on Parking can be found on the National Car Parks website.
Nearly 60 buses an hour, including the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway, serve the Addenbrooke’s campus on weekdays, with many services originating from within the City of Cambridge.
More information can be found on the Cambridge University Hospitals Travel Guide.
The new University bus timetable can be found on the Whippet website.
The Busway A service runs from Monday to Saturday. This provides a direct, traffic-free route between the Trumpington Park & Ride site, the hospital campus, and Cambridge railway station. The service then also runs along the busway serving Longstanton and St Ives Park & Ride sites. This service does not call at the Addenbrooke’s bus station, but there are several stops around the hospitals including the Outpatients Department.
The Busway R service operates between Trumpington Park and Ride, the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC) and Cambridge Rail Station only. This service only has one stop on the CBC on Francis Crick Avenue (a 8-10 minute walk to the Addenbrooke’s main reception).
The Universal Bus Service also operates on the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway between Cambridge Station and the hospitals. This service routes through Cambridge from Eddington and near Madingley Park and Ride. This service does not call at the Addenbrooke’s bus station, but there are several stops around the hospitals including the Outpatients Department.
London is less than one hour away by train. There are frequent train services (from London King’s Cross and Liverpool Street) between the two cities until late at night. Further information about train times and routes, including timetables and fares can be found at National Rail Enquiries. From the station there are many buses to the Addenbrooke’s campus, including the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway services R, A and U that stop on Francis Crick Avenue close to the LMB. Alternatively you can take a taxi to site.
Cambridge Station is well served by trains from a wide area and is about two miles north from the hospitals.
There are good bus options to get to the campus from the station. To get a bus turn left out of the station and bus stops for the site are about 100m on the left. There are several frequent buses and you can take a Busway A or R (signed for Trumpington Park and Ride via Addenbrooke’s and the Biomedical Campus), a Green Park & Ride bus (signed for Babraham Park and Ride via Addenbrooke’s bus station), the Universal Service or a regular Citi bus to Addenbrooke’s. Tickets can be bought on the bus. If you buy a PlusBus train ticket this will also cover your bus travel to and from Campus and is a good deal.
You can walk or cycle to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus either by following the path besides the Guided Busway or along Hills Road.
