Life in Cambridge

Cambridge offers a high quality of life to people looking for a cosmopolitan city with a small-town feel.

A vibrant city, Cambridge has a fine array of high street stores and independent boutiques on cobbled lanes, Michelin-starred restaurants, pop-up eateries, traditional pubs, back street cafes, museums, cinemas, concert halls and theatres. Yet it also has acres of green space with riverside parkland and city centre commons, where cows still graze, as well as a beautiful botanic garden.

Living in Cambridge opens up a world of social and intellectual opportunities, with internationally-renowned film, literature and science festivals, as well as the popular Cambridge Festival of Ideas exploring the arts, humanities and social sciences.

The Perse also benefits from the world-class academic and research institutions on its doorstep such as the University of Cambridge, the Biomedical Campus at Addenbrooke’s Hospital and Wellcome Genome Campus.
