Travelling to Cambridge

Cambridge is easily accessed by road, and is just under one hour by train from London. Frequent coach services link the city with London, Oxford and towns across East Anglia.

Getting to the Museum

We recommend travelling to the Museum by walking or cycling, if you can. Where this is not possible, use public transport or drive, using Government Guidance to help keep yourself, other passengers and transport staff safe.

To reach the entrance to the Museum please come through the archway on Downing street, turn left and walk towards the large flight of stone steps with the dinosaur sculpture outside. A safe queueing zone has been set up for visitors here. Please wait at the bottom of the steps and socially distance from other visitors until staff remove the barrier and welcome you into the Museum at your ticketed entry time.


If you have any access needs and require use of the lift during your visit, if possible please let us know in advance when booking your ticket or by emailing the Museum before you come. sedgwickmuseum@esc.cam.ac.uk

For visitors with restricted mobility, we recommend the Grand Arcade carpark which has blue badge spaces and is located directly opposite the Museum accessible from Corn Exchange Street via Downing Street. For more information please visit our dedicated Access webpage.

Back at the beginning of lock down the Getty museum challenged us to recreate famous works of art with objects from around the home (#GettyMuseumChallenge). As soon as I heard about it I knew I had to make the Duria Antiquior. Despite it’s size, you might have missed the ‘Duria’, high up on a wall in the Jurassic pond area of the museum.
