Traditional road

Mill Road is a traditional road from Cambridge where you can find great stores, pubs and some typical stand offering some amazing thing.

If you like a stroll along a street with lots of ethnic restaurants and groceries, secondhand shops, and antiques this is a good street to check out.

It's packed full of brilliant food shops and places to eat, plus there are a load of pubs off the side streets

Up till the 1970’s students could be expelled for going up Mill rd. It has always been the town part of the city with a very alternative vibe. You will find shops there that you not find anywhere else in the city. However, on this trip I made the mistake of trying to drive up and park. Don’t do it,... More

A mixture of interesting Turkish shops and little restaurants and cafes. Always busy and noisy. Very close to Parker's Piece.

A long road, full of ethnic eateries, ethnic grocers and other individual shops. But unless you live locally there is nothing for the tourist and nowhere at all to park. Just the other side of the railway bridge , going out of town, is The Sea Tree, an award winning fish and chip shop with a few tables, one of... More

If you're looking for lower prices this is the road, set away from the posh shops in Cambridge. There are three charity shops and plenty of places to find food at decent prices.

Wanted to see a different side to Cambridge so did some research and came across 'Mill Road'. It's quite easy to get to if you take the right route, unlike us and we went all around the houses initially!! We parked by the station but this is limited and apart from this I wouldn't know where to park. Mill Road... More
