The University Library is a few minutes’ walk from ‘The Backs’ and about ten minutes’ walk from the city centre. There is no car parking for visitors, but pay-and-display spaces are usually available on Queen’s Road or West Road. Cambridge railway station is served by a frequent shuttle bus service to the city centre, and Citi 4 and Uni 4 buses, and City Sightseeing tour buses, stop close to the Library. Cambridge is on National Cycle Routes 11 and 51, and there is ample parking for bicycles at the Library.
