Marlowe Road is a no-through road (for cars) and is situated to the south edge of Newnham 'village' lying off Grantchester Meadows which again is a no through road and turns into a footpath and leads from Newnham, adjacent to the River Cam to Grantchester.

Newnham is well served in terms of everyday shopping facilities which include a chemist, butcher, bakery, post office, mini supermarket, church and a popular pub, The Red Bull.

At the far end of Marlowe Road is a foot/cycle path which leads to Millington Road and to Millington Road Nursery School with Barton Road beyond. Newnham Croft Primary School is nearby along Chedworth Street which is the 'feeder' school into Parkside Secondary School whilst independent schools including St John's and Kings College Schools and The Leys are within walking/cycling distance (for most).
