Shop for Memories!
Cambridge’s railway station is roughly a mile away from the city’s centre; those who visit the city by rail will either have to walk there, call a cab or take a ride on the tour bus. For those eager to start their shopping experience, check out Cambridge Leisure: a complex just a short walk south of the rail station. With a nine screen Cineworld, a Travelodge, a bowling alley, several grocery stores and restaurants, a gymnasium, and even an art gallery, Cambridge Leisure easily stands up to its name!
Unlike The Grand Arcade, The Grafton or Lion’s Yard, Cambridge Leisure has little to offer in terms of clothing or department stores. Instead, the plaza values more entertaining venues where visitors can share experiences.
The Cineworld and Tenpin bowling alley are Cambridge Leisure favorites for visitors and locals alike!
The Pure Gym on site is also very popular. Enjoy state of the art equipment while losing a few pounds—and we don’t mean the ones in your wallet!
With the railway station so close by, many visitors take advantage of Cambridge Leisure’s Travelodge. This recently refurbished hotel offers double and family rooms for travelers looking for a relaxing atmosphere and easy access to the city centre. Every room comes with a king size Dreamer bed provided by Sleepeezee, to ensure a fantastic night’s sleep.
Don’t feel like ordering room service? Just outside the Travelodge are nine restaurants ranging from subs to Chinese cuisine. If you’re staying longer than a day, Cambridge Leisure also has a Sainsbury’s Local and a Tesco Express to provide for all your grocery needs.
The most unique feature of the Cambridge Leisure complex would have to be the art venue: Cambridge Junction. Standing as a big rectangle made of what look like floorboards, the building itself is artistic enough to grab your attention. Inside, the multi-purpose space hosts everything from comedy shows to family plays to late night raves! Show schedules and times can be found on the Cambridge Junction’s website, but one thing is for certain: this art venue has much more to offer than just pictures on a wall.
Other shopping areas may be closer to the city centre, but only Cambridge Leisure lets you shop for experiences!
