Hilton Green extends for 27 acres providing locals and visitors with a wonderful area to walk and play. This common land is used by children, as the village cricket field and for the village feast week and sports day in July. Overlooking the green are some wonderful houses dating from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century.

As well as the fine buildings surrounding The Green, Hilton also possess other historic houses including Hilton Hourse and Hilton Hall, which was home to members of the Bloomsbury Group.

College Farm is one of the oldest surviving houses in Hilton built in the fifteenth century and with remains of its original moat. It was acquired by St. John's College, Cambridge, in 1529, and remained in their possession until 1961. In the sixteenth century scholars reserved the right to retreat to the farm should the plague become too dangerous in Cambridge.
