I have lived off Mill Road for 40 years, and stayed with it through thick and thin! When I bought my house, I could (in those days) have had for the same price a house in leafy, white, middle-class Newnham, but I chose to live in the Mill Road area because I loved the ethnic and cultural mix, the lively...

I have lived off of mill road for 20 years and in my opinion it is one of the most interesting and varied roads in Cambridge! A must to visit if you have a few days here, it offers an insight into the real 'town' side of the city, not just the gown. Try it for excellent pubs off it,... More

I don't understand the hype about Mill Road. It's scruffy in parts, and horribly cluttered. If you want to buy fresh fruit or vegetables, or some mysterious asian groceries it's worth the detour, and there's a really EXCELLENT Italian deli - other than that there's really nothing to write home about. A homeless man made noises as I was walking... More

very difficult to drive down, the road is too narrow for cars, truck deliveries and cyclists, not to mention the pedestrians

Great for picking up something unusual. I particularly like Arjuna Wholefoods, the Oxfam shop - always has a good range, and a few of the pubs just off the road.

If your in Cambridge a good road to vist, excellent mix of shops and eateries. Excellent if you like searing through charity shops!

It is a bustling, cosmopolitan street which houses many different cuisines and small, independent shops. It could do with a clean though and a spruce up.

When I was young mill road had an array of small independent shops. It had great boozers with fun,vibrant people. Now mill road has become hair salons and coffee shops. Rows and rows of them. Ok it has good places to eat every now and again but it has lost its soul.

If you were going down this road anyway you might think it had some interesting shops and nice places to eat but if you drove 15 miles to get here you might wonder if it had been worth it. Many people in Cambridge hold it in great affection because it's in the middle of a studenty area and is a... More
