Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke’s campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus or one of a few purpose-built cycle routes.
The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all. Another new railway station, Cambridge South has been proposed and is expected to be nearby Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Biomedical Campus.
The area has three primary schools and a state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city’s finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury’s local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron’s Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke’s campus.
