Cambridge’s city centre Grand Arcade certainly lives up to its name with an impressive range of outlets over three sky-lit floors. Conveniently served by a multi-storey car park for anyone driving from one of our Cambridge hotels, Grand Arcade boasts a John Lewis department store, which makes it a magnet for shoppers from all over the region. There are over 60 stores and restaurants in the centre, where you can shop to your heart's content for fashion, beauty and technology items, plus much more.
Slightly further away from the heart of the city is the popular Grafton Centre, which is less than a 15-minute walk from our Cambridge City East hotel. Here you’ll find high street brands, such as H&M, River Island, Next, and The Entertainer. There's also a Vue Cinema if the weather's taken a turn for the worse and you fancy catching one of the latest big-screen blockbusters.
And if you still fancy some more retail therapy, head for the Lion Yard Shopping Centre where you’ll find popular outlets, including quirky newcomers Flying Tiger Copenhagen and Smiggle, as well as old faithfuls such as Lush, Accessorize and Superdry. The central library is also here, with its own second floor café if you're in need of a cuppa.
