Fantastic range of shops, including foreign food specialists. Parking is a nightmare though. Great place to spend an hour or so when in Cambridge

This is a big student area in Cambridge with lots of individual interesting shops. Parking can be a nightmare so plan on walking to and from the area. As you would expect lots of good pubs down numerous side streets

So, I visit my mate in Cambridge often and she lives on Mill Road. For tourists visiting Cambridge but it is off the beaten track. The only reason I could think for tourists to go to Mill Road would be to avail of some of the cheaper restaurants and cafes on that road. It is quirkier than central cambridge and... More

Mill Road is full of ethnic shops which are quite interesting to see. It isn't particularly touristy but it is nice to see the other side of Cambridge here with all the different shops and restaurants.

A good route for a walk into or out of town but it suffers serious traffic problems. The traffic issues are mostly caused by trucks unloading and delivering to the numerous shops.

I wouldn't suggest the road itself as a tourist destination. It's a great cultural mix, but there's not much to see as a visitor. However, for Asian groceries - particularly Korean foods - it's brilliant. There are also a number of quite good restaurants and cafes.

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
