Lots of shops on this road. Mostly asians'. Walk through here everytime I'm going to town because its just straight ahead.

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

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.
