Things to see and do in Cambridge
There’s a huge amount of historical and cultural attractions to visit in and around the city centre, including the Museum of Cambridge, the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. From King’s College Chapel to the Bridge of Sighs, Great St Mary’s Church and the fascinating University Museum of Zoology, the entertainment keeps coming thanks to the Museum of Classical Archaeology and Cambridge Science Centre.
Whether you’re going for a relaxing stroll through the Cambridge University Botanic Garden or visiting the Wren Library, you can also look forward to enjoying lovely natural spots in the local area such as Midsummer Common, Milton Country Park and Wandlebury Country Park with its teeming wildlife.
Everyone knows about the University of Cambridge, one of the most famous in the world, but you might not know there are plenty of good schools for younger children in the area too. They include Histon and Impington Junior School, which is a few miles north of the city centre and rated as outstanding by Ofsted.
At secondary level, Comberton Village College is also outstanding according to the education board. It’s five miles outside the city though, so if you live centrally you may be better positioned for the Chesterton Community College catchment area, with this mixed secondary also rated as outstanding.
Cambridge transport links
As well as the usual buses and train stop on Station Road, Cambridge City Council also encourages walking, cycle hire and its park and ride services, as well as a punt down the river. If you have a car, the M11 starts to the west of town and heads south to London past and London Stansted Airport, which is a half-hour drive away.
The Cambridge property scene
Cambridge’s recent tech boom has led to a rise in property prices, so there’s no time like the present to get on the ladder in the area. You can do just that with a stylish 2 bed apartment off Huntingdon Road, just a mile and a half from the city centre.
Perhaps you only need a 1 bed apartment, or a 5 bed detached family home, both of which you can find in Trumpington a couple of miles south of the centre. Or maybe you’d rather be a bit further away from town in a contemporary 2 or 3 bed home just outside Longstanton. Whatever it is, don’t forget to enquire about our latest offers such as our Part Exchange scheme, where we could act as a guaranteed buyer for your existing home and eliminate your estate agent fees in the process.
