Best areas to live in Cambridge

The definition of a majestic city if there ever was one, Cambridge offers many pleasant and beautiful places to live. As such, property prices tend to be on the more expensive side when compared with other cities, but areas still cater to a variety of budgets.

Chesterton

Located just two miles outside of Cambridge, Chesterton has a beautiful location by the River Cam, and is nestled in between three green spaces: Midsummer Common, Logan’s Meadow, and Stourbridge Common. Houses sell for approximately £419,594, and it’s regularly cited as one of the best places to live in Cambridge due to its lively range of bars, restaurants and cafés, as well as its proximity to the city centre.

Hills Road

Hills Road lies two miles south of the city centre, and is popular with families due to its proximity to both The Perse Upper School, and Hills Road Sixth Form College. Just a short walk from Cambridge station, Hills Road is well-connected, with London just under a 50-minute train ride away. Average house prices here sit at £1.13 million, with properties typically semi and detached homes, with large gardens.

Grantchester

Synonymous with the TV show of the same name, Grantchester lies three miles south west of the city centre. Its proximity to the M11 makes it an ideal choice for commuters, with property prices costing an average of £716,250. Other draws to Grantchester include the picturesque Grantchester Meadows, the proximity of the River Cam, and the quaint Orchard Tea Garden – the perfect pitstop for when punting down the river.

Mill Road

Mill Road is popular with professionals due its range of cafes, restaurants and shops right on its doorstep. However, families like to move to the area too, as it’s close to four excellent schools. A 15-minute drive from Cambridge, it’s close to the heart of the action, and a property here will set you back by approximately £254,786.

De Freville Avenue

Situated next to Chesterton, it’s one of the most sought-after areas in Cambridge, with properties having an average price tag of £1.35 million. Jesus Green and Midsummer Common provide picturesque walking and cycling opportunities, and the River Cam is just a stone’s throw away. De Freville Avenue is also home to some of the city’s best schools, making it a popular place for families.

Things to do in Cambridge

Whilst Cambridge may be a compact city, it sure packs a punch. Loved by history and nature enthusiasts alike, if you live in this picturesque city, you certainly won’t be short of things to do.

Go punting on the River Cam

One of the first things you should do as a new resident of Cambridge is spend a few hours punting. Enjoy an alternative view of the University’s college buildings, and if you don’t fancy putting in the hard work yourself, then that’s fine – book your own gondolier-like guide to do it for you so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the view!

Visit the Bridge of Sighs

You’ll pass the Bridge of Sighs if you go punting, but even if you don’t hit the river, it’s still worth paying a visit. Said to be Queen Victoria’s favourite thing about Cambridge, the bridge was built in 1831, and is part of the St. John’s College building.

Tour the University of Cambridge

From the iconic King’s College chapel, to the Corpus Clock, St. John’s college and more, the University of Cambridge truly is iconic, with so many sights to see. If you don’t fancy wondering past the buildings yourself, you can book a guided tour with one of the students, to get the lowdown on what it’s really like studying at such a prestigious university.

Enjoy nature at the Botanic Garden

Spanning 40-acres, the Botanic Garden is the perfect way to while away a sunny afternoon. Accessible by entrances on Trumpington Road and Hills Road, here, you’ll discover more than 8,000 species of plants, and will have the chance to spot a range of wildlife, including sparrowhawks and dragonflies.

Visit Ely Cathedral

Whilst not technically in the city of Cambridge, Ely is definitely worth a visit. The cathedral dates back to 1803, and was designed in Romanesque style. Extend your visit to a day trip and pay a visit to Oliver Cromwell’s house, before heading to Wicker Fen nature reserve, which is home to more than 8,500 species of animals.
