Is access easy for wheelchairs?

Yes: the church is all on one level and so disabled access from the street and around the church is excellent. We also have a fully accessible toilet in the Parish Centre.

Where can I park?

LSM is wonderfully located in the centre of Cambridge. If you are coming to the early Mass on a Sunday or the evening Mass on a Wednesday or Saint's Day, you can park nearby on Trumpington Street, for free. If you have a blue "disabled parking" badge you can park directly outside the church at any time. Otherwise there is chargeable parking at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Granta Place (vehicle access via Mill Lane, not Little St Mary's Lane) or at the Grand Arcade shopping centre, and a limited amount on nearby streets. The Backs (Queen's and Newnham Roads) often have some spaces, but if you want trouble-free parking then it is best to avail yourself of the Park & Ride. service. The P&R buses (from Trumpington daily and from Madingley on weekdays) stop nearby in Trumpington Street. For more details see the How to Find us page.

Can I see the Godfrey Washington Memorial?

Washington memorial


Yes: the memorial to George Washington's great uncle (a former Vicar of Little Saint Mary's) is available to view whenever the church is open (which is every day). It's on the left above the bookstall as you enter the church. Postcards of the memorial and other views of the church are also on sale. Make sure you see the rest of Godfrey's church too, however!
