It's lovely here plenty of shops. If your not from the area please don't miss the historic centre I can't find it on here to give it a review but WOW. Its beautiful and something not to be missed! The buildings are amazing. It's just WOW. Please remember students are studying though so some places are closed due to exams.... More

The centre has clearly seen better days, it is very quiet and has clearly been surpassed by the far better Grand Arcade nearer the centre of Cambridge. The centre is kept clean however it could do with some much needed TLC to bring it back to its former glory.

I came here with my friends to see a film at the Vue cinema but we ended up staying 4 hours there shopping. Personally I'm not the tipe of person to spend hours shopping at one place but at The Grafton you can't get bored of it. There's a lot of shops to go and spend your money. When you... More

Reasonable shopping centre located just outside the city centre in Cambridge. The Grafton Centre plays host to a multitude of shops from BHS to Carphone Warehouse to a Millie's Cookies. The car park is very expensive. For a better (but more expensive) shopping experience, head over to the Grand Arcade. The Grafton has a small food court with a Burger... More

One or two ok shops but my highlight was the sweet shop. Can't understand why a shopping centre who wants you to shop charges £16 for 5 hours and that's not the worst of it. It goes up even more after 5 hours. Even the basic shop of a couple of hours will hit you for £9.

Typical small mall housing the usual array of shops, but there was nothing special about this mall. Given its location to the superb streets and shops around Cambridge I would have expected something different here.

The Grafton Centre is pretty dire, it is a place no wants to spend long in. There are no decent shops and the food court is small and grim.

I visited the Grafton Centre to go to the cinema. Nothing special, as malls go, and parking, there, seems expensive. I didn't feel especially inspired by the place.

Cambridge is not the best place to shopping! But if you need to buy something urgent, this is probably your unique option! The options to buy gifts of the city are very reduced!

Always would pop into a few different clothing stores and then eventually end up at C&A or Q&D because we weren't rich enough to afford the likes bhs and next...
