Recommended place to stay:

Duke House

Last updated: 31 October, 2022

The rooms are elegant, the location – walkable from all the main sights – is excellent, but it’s the service that really sets Duke House apart; owner Tina gives the warmest welcome, and is always on hand for everything from bespoke breakfasts to restaurant recommendations and shopping tips. 

Of the five rooms, plump for the Cambridge, which has a small private balcony – perfect for watching the sun set over the city’s rooftops. The B&B also has its own parking – a boon in busy Cambridge.  

It’s perfectly situated for exploring all that Cambridge has to offer; most of the colleges are within a couple of minutes’ walk, and the Grand Arcade, the city’s premier shopping venue, is equally close. 

Surrounding Area

Duke House is set on a quiet, unremarkable street of Victorian terraced houses that is much quieter than most of the streets in the centre of town.

Walk a minute from the door and the road opens out into Christ’s Pieces – one of the oldest green spaces in Cambridge, perfect for a quiet stroll or post-sightseeing picnic. 

This is primarily a residential area, so you’ll see few other tourists and is ideal for those who want a tranquil escape, rather than to be in amongst the city’s buzz.
