Places in the UK – Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire is a county in eastern England, bordering Suffolk to the east and is a place that is full of history and great architecture.

It is close by to London, making it a great place to commute from if you manage to secure a health or social care role there. But what makes Cambridgeshire such a nice place to live? Well, it offers a vibrant cultural hub full of museums, concert halls, art galleries, and of course is home to the world-renowned University of Cambridge - not to mention the extensive range of wonderful eateries and pubs it has.

In this blog, we’ll share a little about why Cambridgeshire makes an ideal place to live:

Restaurants and pubs

Cambridgeshire is a melting pot of culture, art, and diversity so it’ll come as no surprise that it boasts a huge variety of high-quality restaurants. For example, there’s Little Petra in Cambridge, a middle eastern eatery that offers hearty portions of Jordanian food and drink. There’s also Vanderlyle in Cambridge – a trendy restaurant with farm-to-table dishes focused on vegetables. Outside of Cambridge, you also have the Bull in Newmarket that offers a range of delicious meals and The Cock in Huntingdon, a village pub serving seasonal, modern British cuisine in a cosy setting.  

Arts and culture in Cambridgeshire

Thanks to its prestigious university, Cambridge has a particularly large student population. This creates a vibrant cultural scene across the area, which offers visual arts, music, drama, and dance. Cambridgeshire is home to several theatres including Cambridge Arts Theatre and the Barnwell Theatre, and music venues such as Tall Trees and the West Road Concert Hall.

The great Cambridgeshire outdoors

Newly settled in Cambridgeshire and wondering if there’s much to do out and about? Never fear, there’s heaps of outdoor adventures to enjoy in this county. If you or your family are interested in scenic trails, you could try The Cambridge Treasure Hunt Trail, suitable for all ages. It will have you exploring around the often-missed area to the north of the city centre! Or there’s the St Ives Mystery Treasure Trail that’ll have you looking at plaques, signs and buildings to solve its clues! How about a fun day out at the Rally Karting Centre in Huntington, where you can experience the exhilaration of off-road karting. No previous experience is necessary to take part!
