Staying in Cambridge

Cambridge as a city has prospered while maintaining its historic reputation and is home to the world-famous Cambridge University. Apart from its top notch academics it has earned acclamation as a centre for science and technology.

It is home to many new start ups with entrepreneurs playing a vital role in the development of new businesses in the city. As a result there are a growing number of visitors both for pleasure and business to Cambridge. To cater to the large number of visitors, the hotels in Cambridge England are well equipped.

One such new hotel is The Tamburlaine Hotel Cambridge that offers world class amenities and facilities and is suitably located in the city centre. It makes it convenient to get around for business or pleasure.

Travel in Cambridge

With the sudden spurt of growth and development in the eighties, the road network needs to be better developed. One of the primary reasons is that most of the city centre is not too conducive to traffic. There are more bicycles to be seen around Cambridge than anywhere else in the UK. One of the reasons is the rather limited car parking space to be found. Although, a redeeming factor are the numerous Park & Ride points along the approaches to the centre of town. The railway station of Cambridge was built in 1845 and has one of the longest platforms in the UK. The only hitch is that it is about a twenty minute’s stroll from the centre of the city. Despite this the city is well linked with numerous national and regional routes.

Thankfully the bus station has a central location near Drummer Street that is neighbouring Christ’s College.

Shopping and dining in Cambridge

One of the benefits of staying in Cambridge is that it is very compact, which makes it ideal to shop as you do not have to walk long distances. One of the newer additions to shopping in the city is The Christ’s Lane Centre. It houses high street brands of the likes of H&M, Zara and Bank etc. Then there is the Grand Arcade that is home to brands like Hugo Boss, Hobbs, Gerry Webber, Links of London and LK Bennett. Another spot to visit is Lion Yard which is home to The Body Shop and Lush.

While fine dining restaurants are more limited there are plenty of Mediterranean food joint, bistros and vegetarian options to choose from. There are a number of good English pubs like Free Press, Champion of the Thames and The Castle Inn that are out of the best. There are plenty of other pub options along Bateman Street, Castle Street, Bridge Street and Kingston Street to choose from.

The top nightlife hotpots in the area include Fez one of the city’s larger clubs and KamBar an indie club that remains open to the wee hours of the morning.

And there are ample large open green spaces to relax in the city. And there is The Backs which are a prominent feature of Cambridge that offer the prospect to chill out on a punt while floating along the River Cam behind some of the most attractive colleges in the city.

On the whole Cambridge is a great spot to live and work, if you want to avoid the stress and bustle of city life in London!
