Popular Locations in Cambridge

Mill Road

This long road is splashed with street art and packed full of cool, independent shops. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy ‘70s-style homeware and other similarly offbeat shops for a new wardrobe addition. Vinyl admirers can head to Relevant Records and browse a range of secondhand LPs and new releases. Where food is concerned, Italian deli Limoncello has some of the best Mediterranean snacks in East Anglia.

Kettle’s Yard

This is probably the most homely art gallery you’ll ever come across (because it actually used to be someone’s home). The former residence of Jim and Helen Ede, the couple packed their home with famous artworks. Later, an act of generosity led them to donate it all to Cambridge University. Today, you can visit this lovely location and see the art which is arranged all around the house.

De Freville Avenue

De Freville Avenue is a name that many locals will have heard of before, mainly amongst people discussing dream homes or somewhere within Cambridge where they’d love to live. This gorgeous area is highly sought-after and also close to the ever-popular lido at Jesus Green if you ever fancy a dip.
