There are always plenty of things to do in Cambridge - this vibrant and historic City has something for everyone. You won't be disappointed when visiting Cambridge - whether you love shopping, walking, sightseeing or relaxing with a glass of wine and some good food - there's always a reason to visit.
Spend the day wandering the City admiring the amazing architecture - there are many walking tours on offer, but if you prefer to do things at your own pace, pick up a map at the Tourist Information Centre and amble at your own pace. Alternatively see the City as the locals do and hire a bike! We recommend Station Cycles cycle hire for convenience and choice.
The historic college buildings and grounds of Cambridge University are a must. King's College and Chapel are generally at the top of everyones' list, but don't miss Queens, Jesus, St. Johns, Trinity & Clare Colleges - all of them ooze history and charm.
One of the best ways to get your bearings when visiting Cambridge is to take a "Hop-on-Hop-off" bus tour taking in many of the City's important landmarks and sights. There are regular departures and you can get on and off when and where you please visiting the sights at your leisure.
Fancy trying your hand at punting? Then head for the River Cam where you can either hire a punt or take the more relaxed, chauffeured option - sit back and take in the sights whilst learning about the historic landmarks as you pass by.
If all that history and culture hasn't worn you out - head for one of Cambridge's many museums. Fitzwiliam Museum boasts art and artefacts from around the world and Sedgewick Museum of Earth Sciences exhibits collections from Charles Darwin's expeditions. There's the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, The Scott Polar Research Institute and the Museum of Technology to name just a few.
Be sure to take some time out to explore the wonderful shopping on offer in Cambridge - the City has an amazing array of shops from small independent craft shops and delis to the famous chain and designer stores. The Grand Arcade houses all the usual suspects including John Lewis, Hobbs, Laura Ashley, Apple, L K Bennett, The White Company and Hobbs.
