Area Information

Referred to by The Sunday Times as "Cambridge's answer to Notting Hill", Petersfield covers a large part of Mill Road and stretches from Hills Road to Newmarket Road. It is an area with lots of charm, with roads made up of beautiful Victorian houses. 

Taking place the first Saturday of every December, the Mill Road Winter Fair brings the community together in the run-up to Christmas where song and dance, live bands, arts and crafts, entertainment and plenty of food and drink descends on Mill Road. It has become one of the most enjoyed and biggest events in Cambridge.

There are surprisingly a number of open spaces for such a central area to the city including small parks such as Petersfield, Flower Street play area, Ravensworth Gardens play area,  Sleaford play area, St Matthews Piece to name a few. There is also Donkey's Common which was used as a camp for the women’s branch of the British Army in the second world war, but now has a small skate park and outside table tennis.

Petersfield Medical Practice and York Street Medical Practice are doctors surgeries in the area and along with two dentists. The closest primary school is St Matthews Primary School on Norfolk Street with secondary schooling at Coleridge Community College and Parkside.


You are spoilt for choice when it comes to your choice of mainly independent restaurants, pubs and coffee shops and is an ideal location for London commuters as the train station is just a short walk away.
