Events and Participation
Learn more about the development
Building a community is important at the North West Cambridge Development and we will be welcoming neighbours and interested parties on site to a variety of organised events which will be aimed at enhancing people’s understanding of the sense of place that we hope to create.
Our "Building Eddington" tours are a great way to see the development in progress in its construction period. At the tour, we'll give an introduction to the scheme and provide a health and safety briefing, before touring the first phase of the development which is currently under construction by minibus with experts from our team. Please note that due to health and safety precautions from the on-going construction, no visitors are permitted to leave the minibus whilst it is travelling around the site unless instructed to do so by the tour guide.
Public tours are available at 10.30am on the following days. Tours will last approximately 1 hour. Please arrive ten minutes prior to the advertised start time of your tour.
The meeting point for tours is Gravel Hill Farm, the project office for the North West Cambridge Development. Gravel Hill Farm is located on Madingley Rise, off Madingley Road, Cambridge, CB3 0FU. Parking is available at Gravel Hill Farm on a first come, first served basis. There is plenty of cycle parking. See our map here.
Please note that the University is offering these tours free of charge and spaces are limited due to the capacity of the minibus and health and safety site requirements. We understand that circumstances change between the time of your booking and the event, but we politely request that you inform us if you can no longer attend a booked place so we can offer it to another on the wait list and make the most of the opportunity.
