Cambridge is the ultimate university town. Stroll through cobbled streets lined with architectural masterpieces, and take in the atmosphere of a city steeped in achievement and history.
Cambridge is one of the best cities in the UK for cyclists. Thanks to its extensive cycle route, you can explore your surroundings free and easily. Make like the locals and take a scenic bike ride around the city’s open spaces, admiring the magnificent buildings and collages.
On a nice day, discover Cambridge’s green spots, such as Jesus Green Park, Midsummer Common or Parker’s Piece. The whole family can enjoy picnics under the leafy trees, walks alongside the River Cam (keep a look out for the rowers!) or a leisurely game of tennis, football or cricket.
On a shoestring: Fitzbillies Café. A city institution since 1921, this place serves up hearty food made from scratch on the premises. Don’t leave before sampling one of its famous sticky buns.
Middle of the road: The Riverbar Steakhouse & Grill. Enjoy delicious, juicy steaks (and other dishes) with a front-row riverside view.
Bigger budgets: Alimentum Restaurant. Owner of one Michelin Star and three AA Rosettes, this Modern European restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Cambridge.
From its bustling market square to its bountiful boutiques, high street stores and shopping centres, you can easily spend a whole day rummaging through the rails in Cambridge.
If you love a shopping mall, The Grafton and the Grand Arcade – Cambridge’s largest and most recent shopping centre – house designer and high street brands, along with an array of bars and restaurants.
