Area Information

Travel supermarket listed Romsey as one of the trendiest spots to visit in a countrywide ranking and it scored highly in categories such as "hip culture outpost" and "creative capital", outranking areas in London and Liverpool. Locals feel that the "community spirit" and "village feel" of the neighbourhood is what makes it such a good part of the city to live. Just like its neighbour Petersfield, the area is thriving with a wide variety of mainly independent businesses, shops and restaurants.

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.

As the area has a high density of housing, namely beautiful period homes, open spaces are limited, but Romsey Recreation Ground on Vinery Road has a multi use games area and an outdoor basketball court, there is also a play area on Great Eastern Street.


There are two doctors surgeries, located at the Brookfields Health Centre on Seymour Street and the Mill Road Surgery, the Antwerp House Dentist can be found on Brookfields.
