    I should have also said, many families live here and lots of people in the surrounding villages also commute, often cycling to the station.

    Hello there

    I live in Cambridge and commuted to London for 3 years. Many people find it is an easy journey (fast train from Cambridge to Kings Cross St Pancras is around 50 minutes) and an enjoyable place to live. For me it gives all the feel of a city, but with elements of the countryside as there are plenty of green spaces. The cost of an annual season ticket is in the region of £5k.

    There is also a slightly slower train to Liverpool Street (1 hr 20 mins) and good connections to Suffolk towns, Norwich and Birmingham.

    As Cambridge is a cycling city, many commuters will take a foldable bicycle on the train to save tube fees in London.

    Hand on heart I can say it is the best place I’ve ever lived in the UK. If you can handle students and tourists (all have been good natured in my 8 years in the city) then it’s worth considering. Fantastic schools and educational centres and plenty to do around the city and surrounding areas.

    All the best in your house hunt!

    Hi Jonathan

    A nice place for brunch is Bills on Green St which is close to the Sainsburys in the city centre. Not sure how child friendly it is though.

    Maybe you could try Sticky Beaks which is on Hobson Street near the corner of King Street. They have a good selection of breakfasts, healthy lunches and cakes and lots of seating. Gets busy though!

    Giraffe on Christ’s Lane is fun too and they give kids colouring and balloons.

    Happy Brunching!
