It completely surrounds Cambridge City and shares its boundaries with Huntingdonshire, Fenland and East Cambridgeshire on the northern part of its borders. In the south the district has boundaries with Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex and Suffolk.

The District consistently wins awards of being a great place to live considering factors such the labour market, environment, housing market, education and health.

South Cambridgeshire has played a key part in the economic growth of the region. It has successfully combined traditional industries such as agriculture and engineering with new sectors such as IT and biosciences, many of which are situated on one of the several burgeoning business and science parks.
