The venue for the 2020 Tree Conference is the Babbage Lecture Theatre

Babbage Lecture Theatre, Corn Exchange Street, Cambridge, CB2 3QZ, UK


It’s part of Cambridge University’s New Museum Site, next to the David Attenborough Buildings and opposite the car entrance to the Grand Arcade in Cambridge.

By Rail

There are regular trains to Cambridge from London’s King’s Cross, London’s Liverpool Street, Norwich, Kings Lynn and Peterborough. Grand Arcade is a 15 minute walk from the station or there is a regular bus service to the city centre from the train station. For train times to Cambridge click here. To see train times easily, visit The Trainline, click here.

By Car

Parking is easy because the Grand Arcade Car Park is also on Corn Exchange Street.  Navigating your way to Corn Exchange Street with Cambridge’s one way system is a bit harder.  Cambridge is off the M11 from the North or South and off the A14 from the East or West.  As you come into the city their are signs for the Grand Arcade that should help.

Once you’ve parked, find your way back to the Corn Exchange vehicle entrance rather than take the elevators into the main Grand Arcade Shopping Centre.

Cambridge also has a Park & Ride which is very efficient.

By Bus

There is an extensive network of buses that serve the city centre and stop at the interchanges of Emmanuel Street and Drummer Street, just outside Grand Arcade.
