Life in Cambridge
Lifestyle, History and Culture
Cambridgeshire is the perfect base for your business and employees, with an enviable lifestyle, rich history and culture, and excellent transport links.
An internationally-renowned city, there’s plenty to do in Cambridge, from punting the River Cam, to visiting the iconic colleges, or even watching comedy at Footlights – possibly the most professionally accomplished ‘amateur’ theatrical club in the world.
The city is home to an abundance of cherished museums, including the Fitzwilliam, host to over half a million works of art, and the 17th-century Museum of Cambridge, guardian of the city’s distinctive history, or the Scott Polar Research Institute Museum & Library, where each afternoon the original bell from Scott’s ship is rung and all visitors are invited to gather for tea and discussion.
Dining options in the city are plentiful, including two Michelin-starred restaurants, a café in a refurbished 13th century church, and The Eagle pub, where Watson and Crick announced their discovery of ‘the secret of life’ to the world.
It is an easy place to stay healthy and active – as well being a city known for cycling, the city has a state-of-the-art climbing wall, the famous 1920s outdoor Jesus Green Swimming Pool, and substantial rowing community sustained by the Cam.
There are a number of new developments in the area immediately surrounding the Campus.
Great Kneighton will create over 2,300 new homes, from studios to six-bed houses, and sits in between the CBC and a pair of new primary and secondary schools. From the development, it’s a 20-minutes walk to the Campus, traversing a brand-new 120 acre park and bird reserve.
Trumpington Meadows is a development of 1,200 one to five-bed homes within a mile of the Campus, close to Trumpington village centre. The site also incorporates children’s play areas, a multi-use games area, tennis courts and allotments, as well as a park managed by the Wildlife Trust.
