Why Move to Cambridgeshire?
Cambridgeshire sits in a region called East Anglia. Just above London and home to around 850,000, this county is often ranked as one of the best places to live in the UK. A lively, region, full of contrasts from world-renowned academia such as the University of Cambridge to tiny little ruralised villages offering a slow steady quiet lifestyle. People have settled in this region for millennia.
A great number of archaeological finds from the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, and the Iron Age were made in East Cambridgeshire. The county is also mentioned in the Domesday Book as “Grantbridgeshire” (or rather Grentebrigescire) (related to the river Granta).
Well connected and commutable to London, like so many regions surrounding London, Cambridgeshire’s population has grown substantially over the past 10-20 years, it has become an extremely desirable county to reside in.
The demographic is diverse and appeals to all. Students, young professionals, families, and retirees can all find their forever home somewhere in Cambridgeshire. To the north, the countryside flattens out with open views across fields and fenland. To the West, there are lots of small towns and villages close to waterside locations such as Grafham Water, the River Great Ouse, and Drayton Lakes.
The city of Cambridge is the hub of the county and also its property hot spot. The academic achievement of Cambridge is evident everywhere you go home to not just its world acclaimed university, but innumerable places of historic interest within the city. When it comes to things to do, it is no surprise that this ancient county is crammed full of history, great architecture, and beautiful country locations.
Cambridgeshire can prove an excellent out-of-London solution. Fast trains ensure a swift commute into London in some areas south of the county such as Cambridge, in as little as 50 minutes. Cambridgeshire borders seven other counties in this region of the UK.
Lincolnshire to the north, Norfolk to the north-east, Suffolk to the east, Essex and Hertfordshire to the south, and Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire to the west. More than enough areas to explore at your leisure.
If you are looking for somewhere timeless and untouched, yet with a contemporary edge, Cambridgeshire has few contenders.

As with all counties across the country, Covid 19 has had an impact on all types of businesses however, the region has a proven track record in many areas.

It too performs strongly in innovation, ranking 13th among UK cities for patents registered per capita.
Linking these two strong areas of the economy is the Fens, the most productive agricultural land in the UK.
Education features highly with Cambridge University requiring an army of around 11,500 staff to support its global reputation. Other popular employers in Cambridgeshire are Arm Ltd. And Specsavers.
