Newmarket Road is an arterial road in the east of Cambridgemarker, Englandmarker. It is designated the A1134 at the western end, linked by a roundabout forming a junction with Barnwell Road (A1134) to the south. The eastern end links with the city's inner ring road at another roundabout, with Elizabeth Waymarker (A1134) to the north and East Roadmarker (A603) to the southeast. Newmarket Road continues a short way towards the city centre, becoming Maid's Causewaymarker and then Jesus Lanemarker. To the east, the road crosses the A14 at a major roundabout, continuing further east and parallel to the A14 out of the city. The road is named after the market town of Newmarketmarker in Suffolk, east of Cambridge.

The Abbey Stadiummarker, home of Cambridge United Football Club is to the south of the road. The section at the north end of the stadium next to the road is known as the Newmarket Road End. The historic Leper Chapelmarker of St Mary Magdalene is also close to the road, where it crosses the railway. Dating from 1125, it is probably the oldest surviving building in Cambridge. The Cambridge City Cemetery is off the road to the north. There is a brick-built cemetery chapel.

On the edge of the city south of Newmarket Road and west of the village of Tevershammarker is Cambridge Airportmarker. The main building was designed by the architect Harold Tomlinson and constructed 1936–37.

The road includes large out-of-town stores such as B&Q. There are also a number of car showrooms.
