Travel Information

Hughes Hall is walking distance from the main train station - and should take approximately 15 minutes. There is also a taxi rank situated outside the station if required.

As you exit the train station walk straight ahead and up the road in front of you - Station Road. Take the first turning on your right on to Tenison Road, walk all the way up to the top of Tenison Road - at the top turn left on to Mill Road. For Hughes Hall turn on to Mortimer Road. This turning is at the end of Mill Road immediately before the T-junction and traffic lights for Gonville Place and it is the third turning on the left from Tenison Road. It is signposted to Fenner's Cricket Ground.

Alternatively you can take the main road route. Walk to the top on Station Road and turn right on to Hills Road, you will get to a large set of traffic lights and crossroads where you will need to turn right on to Gonville Place. As you walk down Gonville Place you will pass a large Green on your left and a Sports Centre on your right. Turn right immediately after the Sports Centre on to Mill Road. Hughes Hall is situated on Mortimer Road, which is the first turning on the right off of Mill Road from this direction, signposted to Fenner's Cricket Ground

The conference centre entrance is situated to the right of the Main entrance of Hughes Hall. You should enter through this entrance rather that the main doors. This is where registration will take place.


If you require overnight accommodation before the workshop the organisers and speakers will be staying at the
De Vere University Arms

There are a number of hotels and Guest Houses in the area which cater for different budgets. More information can be found on the local tourist information Web site [Further Information]
