The London-Cambridge-Oxford golden triangle was recently named one of the top global regions to watch because of its world-leading life sciences ecosystem.
Cambridge, home to over 180 biotech and healthcare companies, is specifically highlighted by investment management firm Jones Lang LaSalle’s third annual Global Life Sciences Cluster Report as a mature and successful region.
Within the UK, the golden triangle is seen as particularly strong because of its world-leading academic and clinical institutions, mature business clusters, good connections to the rest of the world and an increasing focus on public, private and academic sector collaboration.
A city for everyone
Cambridge is a great city to live in with lots going on; plenty of green open spaces, impressive architecture, and some wonderful museums and art galleries. It is ideal for families and has a good variety of schools and of course is home to the world famous Cambridge University. In the town centre, you will find historic passages set around the marketplace mingling with independent shops and high street brands. There are plenty of old pubs with interesting histories, and restaurants and cafes to relax in. The list of entertainments and cultural events is endless, with festivals, music, comedy, exhibitions, theatre, poetry and many touring groups.
"The best place to live in rural Britain"
According to a survey by the Halifax Bank, South Cambridgeshire is the best place to live in rural Britain, with the highest life expectancy, good health and high educational standards.
Cambridge Science Park
Cambridge Science Park is home to over 100 companies and attracts a wide array of industry leading talent. First-class facilities available include state-of the-art conferencing facilities, restaurant, bar, fitness centre and children’s nursery. We also have a clubhouse on site that is home to our Sports and Social Club.
Cambridge is easy to reach by road, rail or air. It is 50 minutes by train from Central London, providing direct access to the continent via the Eurostar and London City Airport. Alternatively, London Stansted Airport is just 40 minutes by car.
Cambridge also now has a “Guided Bus”, which provides a reliable, fast and frequent service to Huntingdon and St Ives. The bus has a dedicated track which means you can travel by public transport between St Ives Park & Ride and the Science Park in Cambridge in just 20 minutes.
Out of town, there is much to explore. Cambridge is surrounded by pretty market towns and country houses and is within 50 miles of the seaside.
