We moved (back) to Cambridge!

Since relaunching this blog as Polly and Pip, I wanted to write an update on where we now live. I lived in Brighton for 6 years and we moved back to Cambridge last year, a town I missed so much! Brighton has the sea, the lanes and all the attractions I used to write about on my blog but it’s also very busy, urban, overpriced and for me, never felt like home. We moved back to Cambridge last year and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. We are so happy living in this beautiful green town again! 

When people ask why I love Cambridge so much, these are the things I mention. I love the many open green spaces and parks in the city and the picturesque river running through the centre. I love the cosy little pubs dotted around town. In some areas there is a pub on every road, amongst the pretty Victorian terrace houses. I love the diversity of the city with people from around the world living here. I like the expansion of the city that’s taken place in the last few years and the excitement of seeing a lot of growth and development in new train stations, roads and public transport links. New companies and businesses have moved here and there are many diverse and unique job opportunities. The stunning university buildings and colleges dominate the centre and are filled with so much amazing and unique history. I love that Cambridge is relatively flat and a wonderful town for cycling around! Pip and I cycle to school most days. We are also close to many beautiful parks, as well as the pretty countryside. Home is where the heart is and my heart is in Cambridge. 

I will write a blog on the top things to do in Cambridge (post-lockdown) but for now will sign off. 
What do you like about where you live? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
