Cambourne is a relatively new purpose built town made up of three parts, Great Cambourne, Lower Cambourne and Upper Cambourne, located 9 miles (14.48 kilometres) from Cambridge. It lies on the A428 with Cambridge to the east and St Neots and Bedford to the West. This location is excellent for anyone who is looking to commute into Cambridge, London or Bedford as the A428 and M11 allow easy access to these locations. There are useful bus links into Cambridge from Cambourne, and there are also links to St Neots, Huntingdon and St Ives which run less frequently.

Local Information

Cambourne offers a wide range of shops and amenities such as a Morrisons supermarket and petrol station, a doctor’s surgery, dentist, veterinary practice and a pub – The Monkfield Arms.

The village has four primary schools and a secondary school, meaning pupils do not need to take a bus or alternative travel to the surrounding villages to attend school. As Cambourne is a relatively new village, there are still further plans to enlarge the settlement to provide even more amenities. This village would be the ideal location for someone wanting amenities on their doorstep, excellent schooling as well as transport links to the surrounding villages and towns.


The High Street is home to many takeaways and restaurants, bookmakers, building society, dry cleaners and pharmacy. The village also offers many sports clubs such as football, rugby, tennis, netball and cricket which all have their pitches/grounds. The sports centre was quite recently opened in 2011 which is home to a large sports hall, dance studio and gym.
