The Cambridgeshire Guided Busway (CGB) is set to have an access point at Great Kneighton, just minutes from The Park Residence.

Cambridge’s internationally renowned academic heritage dates back to the early 13th Century, and it is home to one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the world.
Throughout the city and close to Great Kneighton, there is a fantastic choice of schools and colleges for all ages and levels. The Park Residence is also perfectly placed for the proposed new primary school and proposed secondary school.
At Abode you can enjoy the best of both worlds; a rural setting just minutes from a cosmopolitan city offering world-class shops, bars and restaurants. Pick up one-off gifts, antiques and organic foods at the traditional Market Square or head to the All Saints Garden Art and Craft Market for unique handmade items from jewellery, paintings and photography to luxury sweets. Explore the surrounding streets for high street, independent and boutique shops. If you’re serious about labels though, Grand Arcade is a must for high-end fashion – or the Grafton centre for favourites like H&M, Primark and Topshop.
If you need some respite, you’re spoilt for choice. Traditional pubs and inns offering historical charm, trendy cocktail bars, stylish riverside restaurants and al fresco cafés create a chic, continental atmosphere with something for everyone.
