Moving to Cambridge

Moving to Cambridge

Are you moving to Cambridge. The beautiful cathedral city manages to combine its role as an historic centre with the world-renowned University and more recently as an internationally acknowledged centre of excellence for technology and science.

Connections

Due to rapid growth in the 1980’s, Cambridge does suffer from a congested road network, not helped by the fact that much of the city centre is closed to traffic. Car parking is fairly tough to find, so maybe peddling around on a bicycle does have advantages. Direct trains to London King’s Cross run every half hour and take 50 minutes. You can get to Stansted Airport via the M11 in 20-minutes.

Property prices in Cambridge

Average house prices are £500,891 showing a rise of 5.85% over the past 12 months. You can buy a semi-detached property for around £575,000; smaller Victorian terraces for £520,000 and family detached homes starting from £1100,000.

Leisure

You’ll never be short of something to do in Cambridge. The river Cam is great to stroll along at any time of year, the summer months are the best times to swim, punt or picnic. The university has lots of free events worth checking out and the Fountain Inn in Regent Street or the Arts Cinema bar are both perfect for a relaxed drink.
