Directions from A428/A1303 West (Bedford)
Approaching Cambridge on the A428, take the junction signposted A1303 Cambridge. The road goes uphill and bears around to the right, bringing you to a roundabout. At the roundabout take the 2nd exit, signposted Cambridge. Shortly after you will pass the American Cemetery on your left. Continue on this road passing the Madingley Road Park & Ride site on your left, and you will then come to a traffic-light junction for the M11 - carry straight on. Continue on this road through two traffic-light junctions, until you come to a mini-roundabout. Turn right here onto Queen's Road. Continue along Queen's Road until you come to a crossroads with traffic lights. Carry straight on. The road bears right a little and brings you to a roundabout with a Shell petrol station on your right. Turn left here (1st exit). At the top of this road (Fen Causeway) prepare for two mini-roundabouts in quick succession. Turn left at the first and then immediately get in the right-hand lane and turn right at the next 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 (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.
