Microbiotica is located on the Wellcome Genome Campus, nine miles to the south of Cambridge, UK.

On arrival on Campus, report to the Security Reception, from where you will be directed to the Biodata Innovation Centre. Allow 10-15 minutes from arrival at the Campus to arrival at the Biodata Innovation Centre.

 

By public transport:

·       By train: the closest stations are Whittlesford Parkway and Great Chesterford, both about five minutes away (by car), and Audley End (about 15 minutes away by car); all are on the line which runs between Cambridge and London Liverpool Street. Cambridge station, which is on the main line from London King’s Cross as well as from London Liverpool Street, is about 20 minutes away by car but the journey time can be much longer in busy rush hour periods. Both Audley End and Cambridge also serve trains which run from Stansted Airport to Birmingham. Taxi ranks are located at Audley End and Cambridge stations only.
