Start in Eddington Square – pick up a coffee from one of our independent retailers and set off on our accessible and scenic paths around the neighbourhood.
Green corridors, quirky underground bins, buff-brick buildings and pedestrian-friendly courtyards open out to open space and purposefully created landscape parklands. In this tour, you can learn about the architectural features and design principles that have made Eddington an award-winning new neighbourhood, frequently toured by architects, town-planners and other universities eager to see what modern urban design can achieve.

The architectural gem in the centre of Eddington is Storey’s Field Centre and Eddington Nursery – the beating heart of the community that was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2018. The beautiful and sensitively crafted civic building, designed by MUMA, hosts comedy and music gigs, a host of community events as well as weddings, conferences and more.
The circular University of Cambridge Primary School building which is a flurry of creative learning and OFSTED rated Outstanding school.
