Understanding the Housing Market in Cambridge: Key Facts and Figures

The county town of Cambridgeshire and sitting on the River Cam, Cambridge is just over 50 miles away from London, 90 miles away from Birmingham and has a population of 145,700 people, as per the Census of 2021. As a settlement, there is evidence that it goes as far back as the Bronze Age but became an important trading centre during Roman and then Viking times. The Early Modern era saw it grow both as a place important for agriculture and as an administrative centre for the military and while the Industrial Revolution did not bring factories into Cambridge, the introduction of the railway, connecting it to the capital, dramatically increased the Cambridge's standing in the UK. City status was finally conferred in 1951, in recognition of its history, its importance and its economic success. The city is, of course, best known for the University of Cambridge. It is the UK's second oldest university, founded in 1209 by a group of scholars from Oxford University, in protest at the execution of 3 of their peers, and is one of the most prestigious centres of learning in the world, ranked the best in Europe and the second best in the world, by QS World University Rankings. Notable alumni include multiple heads of state, British prime ministers, Olympic athletes, business leaders, scientists and some of the world's most important cultural figures. Cambridge University boasts 121 Nobel Prizes, won by faculty and ex-students. It is impossible to overstate the influence that the institution has on the world stage. And yet, Cambridge is not only a university city or as it was described by Forbes in 2010, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The city is also at the heart of what has become known as Silicon Fen, because of the high-tech businesses that have grown in the science parks around the city. The university is a big player in all of this and is both the owner of many of these parks and buildings and the source of much of the talent that goes into the companies that use them. For instance, Cambridge Science Park is the largest commercial R&D centre in Europe and is owned entirely by Trinity College. The main industries of the city lie with software development, pharmaceuticals, hi-tech engineering and creative/digital. Cambridge is a small city, with a very large economic output and limited housing and as such house prices are not cheap. In the city centre, as well as to the north and the south, average house prices are far north of £400k. To the west, there are some smaller villages where prices are more affordable, though they still would not qualify as cheap. While there are plans to build around 10,000 new homes in the city, demand for housing far outstrips supply and the problem is further exacerbated by the city containing so much by way of historically important built heritage that puts up barriers to redevelopment and regeneration. Cambridge is both historic and future-facing in its economy. It is an exciting place to live, but that comes at a cost.
