An internationally renowned Univeristy city with 31 colleges the most recognised being King’s College with its outstanding chapel and Christmas choir singing as seen on TV; there are 10 churches and chapels all within the small city centre location; and approximately 100 pubs with the oldest being the Pickerel Inn that dates back to 1608 and a favourite watering hole for CS Lewis.
There are many parks and wide open spaces in and aroud the city centre where events are held throughout the year such as the famous Cambridge Folk Festival now at its 52nd year and held in the gardens of Cherry Hinton Hall; the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival performs in private college gardens throughout the summer months, and the Cambridge Film Festival, established in 1977, airs in various venues throughout the city. Craft markets are dotted around the city with a daily market held in the central market square that offers an array of interesting artefacts.
A favourite pastime for many and a new activity for others, is punting on the river Cam. This can be done as a tour, or at a leisurely pace stopping off at riverside eateries, or by having a picnic in one of the many meadows such as Granchester. The city is also known for its annual Boat Race against Oxford and has been so since 1829.
Over the last 5-10 years Cambridge has really developed its food, fashion and music scene where pop-up shops and off-beat independant places are starting to thrive, such as The Pint Shop, Hot Numbers Cafe, and Urban Shed to name a small few! The Grand Arcade shopping centre, now in its 9th year, has been a huge success and much welcomed retail treat for residents and visitors abound. Mill Road, King Street,and Green Street are all great up and coming places to shop & dine!
We look forward to welcoming you to our showroom.
We'd love to share our passion and expertise for planning, designing and managing the change in your kitchen. Drop in to have a chat.
As a naturally artistic, creative and practically minded individual I have a technical degree in fashion design, plus an interior design diploma. These subjects of design knowledge and style have provided the building blocks for venturing into the complex world of kitchen designing.
I have also worked extensively within the hospitality industry where customer service and efficiency is paramount to success.
With these skills combined alongside a warm welcome, a great cup of coffee and a beautiful showroom setting, create the ideal relaxed environment for discussing, planning & designing a lifestyle dream kitchen, here in Cambridge.
From a young age, my obsession with art and craft became apparent. I have studied art and design all through my education, including my BA Honours degree in Graphic Design and Illustration and more recently, my City and Guilds in Interior Design. My first job was in the beautiful fabric department in Liberty Cambridge, building on my passion for beautiful textiles and pattern.
Kitchen design is something I really enjoy, it is the combination of interacting with interesting customers, working closely with them to produce the kitchen they have dreamed of, creating a design that truly works for them and their lifestyle. Every home is different, bringing fresh challenges, there is never a dull moment in the world of Kitchen planning.
I have 3 beautiful boys to keep me more than busy, but I have found time recently to get back to printmaking, something I specialised in at college. I designed a print of a little rabbit for my newest niece as a christening gift and have ended up being inspired to create many more woodland creature prints since then, one for each of my children, nieces and nephews.
I am just about to embark on a huge renovation project, having bought a Fixer Upper 1930's house in Cambridge. As you can imagine, I cannot wait!
Don't take our word for it, see what our customers have to say about their experience of John Lewis of Hungerford
This is just a short note to thankyou for an excellent level of service when we purchased our kitchen earlier in the year.
The renovations are excellent and it just proves what a great product comes from John Lewis of Hungerford.
"most beautiful kitchen in the world", according to my husband!
Many thanks for your help, advice and patience, which proved to be invaluable.
