The Cambridge Independent is a newspaper and website published by Iliffe Media Ltd.

Our aim is to offer a high quality, trustworthy, useful and entertaining service to the community of Cambridge and its surrounding region.

We know that Cambridge is a wonderful place to live and work. We are keen to celebrate it and work with the community and businesses that call it home.

We aim to reflect the interests, concerns and views of the people who live here by creating distinctive, intelligent editorial, while offering effective advertising solutions.

Politically neutral, the Cambridge Independent is positive and supportive of its community, encouraging interaction and engagement with its audience by being thought provoking and a trusted source of local information.

Cambridge Independent Press was first established as a newspaper in 1815 and was published until 1981.

The Iliffe family, which published the title for many years, has re-established the Cambridge Independent in 2016 to provide community-focused content in print and online.

It continues the Iliffe family’s tradition of publishing in Cambridge that stretches back decades.

The Iliffe Media team is based at the Iliffe Print building in Milton, to the north of Cambridge, where the Cambridge Independent is printed.

The team also writes, designs and prints niche publications to serve the community.
