Cambridge is situated about 50 miles (80 km) north-by-east of London. In the 2011 census, the city was home to a population of 123,867 including 24,506 students.
Cambridge has a small historic town centre which can only be visited by foot – Many of the roads in the centre are pedestrianised.

One of the nicest ways to see the sights is by the punt (a long, narrow flat-bottomed boat). Whether you get a tour or self-punt, you can see the beautiful backs from the river.

We understand it can sometimes be hard choosing from such a vast range of options, so here are the top five halal restaurants in Cambridge offering mouthwatering food and world-class service.
