If you have any further information about this or
the other pubs in Trumpington, we would be
very interested to hear from you.
The Unicorn is on
Church Lane, the one
surviving pub not
located on the main
road through the village.

It was extended in 2008
to provide bed &
breakfast. After 170
years as
The Unicorn, it
was renamed
The Lord
Byron Inn
in May 2012.
