I was told the street was lined with quirky and interesting shops. We walked it from the train station into town and pretty much only saw small food shops. I can see where it would be a place to go if one was hungry, but I didn't see anything quirky about it.

As far as I can tell, this street connects Cambridge Railway Station with the centre of the city. On the way, there are some shops, cafes and restaurants. The only significance seems to be the Mill Road Winter Fair, in December and this is … October. I was only here because I came to Cambridge by train.

This is a thing to do? A street? OK........let's take a walk along it.
Not that busy traffic wise which is good. Many delivery drivers on electric bikes and many cyclists going or coming from work or uni.

Most shops are there such as hairdressers, phone, convenience stores, newsagents, estate agents, charity shops, bookshops and many many more.
and a few bars too
as for eating, it's all here from restaurants to fast food and it's pretty much all covered too from Chinese to chips to........................you get the idea.

Not much in the way of chains either. Mostly independent businesses.

Certainly not classy or anything but the local community feel is there and I found it friendly enough

A must visit for foodies. Also try to track down the foodPark locations and visit the city market for the most delicious smoothies and chicken wraps.

Mill Road is a well known road in the Cambridge community. It has a huge variety of shops along it with restaurants selling food from around the world. There's also tattoo parlours, hairdressers and speciality shops.

If you want something a little different from your visit to Cambridge I would suggest checking it out. It's only a short walk from the railway station.

Mix of business, residential and shopping. Traffic was quite noisy and polluting but has cleared a bit with the bridge closure to cars. Which of course is terrible if you are driving into the city centre.

Lots of places to eat but some are a bit rustic from experience. Few pubs and bars as well are ok.

Drunks and beggars love this road, ok so they have to be somewhere, but in your face and pockets is not that great.

I have been going to al Amins for many many years, it is friendy enough and that staff are very accomadating. So why only 2 stars.... Yet again I have left the shop feeling that I have been ripped off. Not all the products have price tags (especially the spices), this has happened so often, I will actually go in the shop to see who is serving behind the till, if it is a young man with a moustache and beard I walk straight out the shop again. I feel awkward complaing about prices, especially when none are shown. I know the manager is a good man and would never knowingly rip off his customers. It would be great if everything had a price and that you could see it being scanned rather than seeing this young man guess or make up pricess in his head. This happened to me "again" on t 4th of Feb 2020. It's a real shame as all I will do is go and shop elswhere for my spices and will advise my friends not to go to Alamin.

Just a short walk from the city centre, the street offers visitors an exciting alternative side of the city.
Whether you want a charity shop bargain, a delicious meal or to grab a pint in a great nearby pub, the area offers something for everyone.

Mill Road is a bustling road in South East Cambridge which I am wont to walk along to from the station and the County Court in East Road. It has a scattering of Charity especially charity bookshops but what has proliferated over the last few years are casual dining restaurants and bars of all ethnicities including Italian, Spanish, Thai, Korean Indian and even North African. Tapas one lunchtime might be followed by a bibimbap supper the next, then pasta, then noodles. A culinary education in under a mile.
