Cambridge is a vibrant city steeped in beauty, history and charm. It is known for its surrounding countryside, gardens, architecture and picturesque streets. 

If you are thinking about relocating to Cambridge, we have compiled a list of reasons why this is a great move.

Proximity to London

It is incredibly easy to reach London for work or recreation from Cambridge. Trains run to King’s Cross four times an hour and twice an hour to Liverpool street, with a journey time of approximately 60 minutes.

So, If you work in London and are currently following hybrid working policies or completely working remotely, Cambridge could be the answer. Just an hour’s train ride from London, you can reap the benefits of living in a small charming city, with stunning surrounding countryside whilst being able to commute to London a couple of days each week.


Cambridge is known as Britain’s everyday-cycling capital. This is partly due to the flat landscapes and dry weather, but mainly because of a self-sustaining cycle culture. With around a third of trips in the town made by bike, Cambridge is one of the few places in England where cycling is one of the most popular ways of commuting to work. 

5 mins from beautiful countryside

Perhaps one of the greatest appeals of moving to Cambridge is its beautiful surrounding countryside. While the city centre is vibrant and busy, there’s not much urban sprawl. So, when locals want to enjoy a break from the city, they have a range of options. 

Thanks to its good climate and beauty, South Cambridgeshire has been declared the best rural place to live in Britain. Popular destinations for residents include the Norfolk and Suffolk coastlines, all on your doorstep if you live in Cambridge.

Home to one of the best universities in the world

The University of Cambridge gives the city centre its beautiful look and provides plenty of employment opportunities. From Cambridge University Press to Cambridge Assessment, from being a lecturer to a librarian, the institution offers a range of jobs.

In addition, a city full of students has contributed towards an eclectic art and culture scene. You can watch shows at the ADC theatre, which have seen stars from Tom Hiddleston to Derek Jacobi blossom.

The University’s Institute of Continuing Education also offers a great range of courses tailored for adults. Here you can learn from some of the brightest academics.
