For years the David Parr House at 186 Gwydir Street has been one of Cambridge’s best kept secrets. Join us and find out why.
Private group visits can be arranged by appointment only (see tour for details) and are a brilliant way of spending time with family and friends in a unique environment. They also make a great gift or celebratory event.
We have a variety of Events that will unfold over the year to showcase the many different aspects of the David Parr House that cannot be shown within the confined space of its four walls.
David Parr House is in the thriving Mill Road area of Cambridge, known for its independent cafes, restaurants and shops.
We are located opposite Dale’s Brewery which houses two antique shops –
The Cambridge Antique Centre and The Hive – and Hot Numbers café (named after a much-loved Cambridge record shop) which offers coffee and cakes, all locally made, as well as breakfast and light lunches.
Mill Road Cemetery, where David Parr is buried, is a short walk along Mill Road.
The Mill Road area has a rich and fascinating history. Find out more on Capturing Cambridge.
