The city of Cambridge is alive with history, from King’s College Chapel to the Grade I listed Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Its biggest draw is the world-famous university - 20% of Cambridge’s population are students, but it is also busy with locals and tourists too. Top sights include the campus grounds and colleges, the Bridge of Sighs, the Mathematical Bridge and the many museums, including the Fitzwilliam museum which houses incredible art and antiquities – the Egyptian Galleries are a must see. The nearby Market Square is a hotspot to grab a bite to eat or a gift from the independent traders and craft stalls. Festivals are frequent too, with the likes of the Midsummer Fair, Cambridge Folk Festival, and Shakespeare Festival.

If you’re hankering for the great outdoors, the picturesque River Cam offers plenty to explore, with pretty picnic spots, punting tours, rowing and regattas. Or spend the day at Thetford Forest.  Our retirement homes in Cambridge are close to a range of amenities, including independent shops, supermarkets, restaurants and so much more.
