Directions from A10 South-West (Royston)
As you approach Cambridge on the A10, go straight over the M11 (2nd exit on roundabout), following signs for Cambridge and passing Trumpington Park & Ride. Soon after you'll pass Waitrose on your left, go straight on at the traffic-light junction there. About half a mile further on there is a traffic-light junction offering a right-turn - but go straight on. Another half a mile further on there is another traffic-light junction offering a right-turn (signposted for the station) - but go straight on. The road bears round to the left a little. You will soon see The Leys School on your left. Prepare for two mini-roundabouts in quick succession. Get in the right-hand lane as you approach the first mini-roundabout and go straight on, keeping right, and turn right at the second mini-roundabout. This is Lensfield Road. You'll pass the Snug bar on your right and the Lensfield Hotel. At the traffic-light crossroads ahead get in the left-hand lane and go straight over (Gonville Place).
Follow either of the car park directions below. (Queen Anne Terrace Car Park is the first you'll come to and nearer to the theatre).
For the Queen Anne Terrace Car Park:
You'll pass the Gonville Hotel on your right and a large open grass area on your left (Parker's Piece). Go over a pedestrian crossing and after three small traffic islands, look for a central lane for turning right into the Queen Anne Terrace Car Park.
Once parked, turn right coming out of the car park onto Gonville Place and pass Parkside Swimming Pool. At the crossroads continue straight on. Almost immediately pass through a gap in the railing fence on your right - this path takes your diagonally across Petersfield, a small park area. At the other side of the park, the path leads you into a small side street. From here you can see the Bradmore Street entrance into Anglia Ruskin University directly ahead. Once inside turn right, walk down the corridor towards the University Library and look for the doors on the right into the Mumford Theatre.
For the Grafton Centre (East) Car Park:
You'll pass the Gonville Hotel on your right and a large open grass area on your left (Parker's Piece). You'll then pass Queen Anne Terrace Car Park on your right and as you approach the next traffic-light crossroads ahead, you'll see the swimming pool on your right. Go straight on. You are now on East Road. Almost immediately you will see the Zion Baptist Church on your right. The next building on your right is Anglia Ruskin University. Continue on East Road passing Tesco Express and Blockbuster Video on your left. You'll pass the Vue Cinema and Grafton Centre on your left and as you approach the next traffic lights ahead there is a slip-lane to the left into the Grafton (East) Car Park.
Once parked, turn right coming out of the car park and walk back the way you came, back down East Road, passing the British Heart Foundation charity shop. Continue walking along East Road, passing a parade of shops on your right (including Blockbuster Video and Tesco Express)) until you come to the pedestrian crossing opposite Anglia Ruskin University. Cross the road and enter the university through the main entrance at the bottom of the steps ahead. Walk down the corridor towards the University Library and look for the doors on the right into the Mumford Theatre.
