    Moving to Cambridge from Dublin

    Hi all. I will be moving to Cambridge from Dublin in about a month. I've gotten some work with Cambridge University Press for the next year.

    If anyone has experience of the area then I'm all ears! My gf is looking for a position in Cambridge too but we aren't sure if she will get it obviously. Leaves me in a spot of bother rent wise.

    Anyways, open to any and all information from you fine folk of mostly UK RPSers!

    Haha. I'm hoping the one year contract keeps me inside the Brexit portcullis for now. How's life Jesus_Phish?

    As with many places you have good parts and bad parts (and property prices to match). It is Cambridge though, so about as civilised as it gets in terms of the uk currently. If you have an Irish accent expect some light racism, that is all the rage in post Brexit uk :(

    I have not been there in about a decade, so do not really have much handy info to share on specifics.

    It costs a fortune to live in the town proper, 2nd only to London. Be prepared to commute from so outlying villages.

    Got some friends that live out in Ely, they seem to like it. Also has a regular train service to Cambridge, so saving you the trials of the Cambridge Ring Road.
