We’ve done some digging to help you avoid the tourist hotspots and hang out where the locals go. There’s more info about our available Cambridge properties here.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding – Forget about punting. SUPing is now the best way to spend a day on the River Cam. Milton Country Park offers plenty of opportunities for you to experience paddle boarding and a whole host of other water sports.

Mill Road – Whether you want a charity shop bargain, a delicious meal or to grab a pint in a great nearby pub, Mill Road offers something for everyone. Some of the top highlights are Calverley’s Brewery, 196 Cocktail Bar, and a plethora of charity shops for the bargain hunters out there.

Green Spaces – Cambridge has a blurred line between city and countryside so there’s lots of green spaces to explore near city. Take a walk to Coe Fen, Midsummer Common or Stourbridge Common.
