How to Arrive

See this webpage


All ARCADES participants are kindly requested to make their own accommodation arrangements. One may consult https://www.visitcambridge.org/accommodation.

Please note that Selwyn College is quite a long way from any hotels.

There is just one bus which passes Selwyn, which is the U bus, which runs every 15 minutes. It links the station (IBIS and Tamburlaine hotels) via Station Road (Centennial hotel) and Trumpington Street (Royal Cambridge, du Vin and Lensfield hotels) to just outside Selwyn. From the other direction the same bus might well be accessible from Girton College Swirles Court and from the Möller Centre at Churchill, but probably the station direction is more appropriate.
For most other hotels, think taxi or non-trivial walk.


Registration is now closed!
