Virtual Tour - Cambridge Hotel

You've made it to the former site of the Cambridge Hotel (first building on the right in image 1) on the Farnborough Road, opposite the Railway Hotel (now the Ham and Blackbird pub), and adjacent to the former Jubilee Hall and Post Office building, and near the old entrance to Farnborough Railway station. Today this site has evolved to being the site of offices and flats.

Where to now? Salisbury road is to the East along with St. Peter's Church, dating back to the 12th century, with Farnborough Road running in either direction and Union Street to the West. To the North are the former sites of Jubilee Hall, the Railway Hotel, and the old Post Office building, with Highgate Lane, Farnborough Hill, the South Lodge, Farnborough Station and St. Michael's Abbey also close by. Going South is the Clockhouse, Victoria Road and the former sites of Brands Removals, Coombe Farm and the lodge houses for Farnborough Place. For the full list of locations nearby, pick where you want to go next from the menu on the right.
