There are always plenty of things to do in Cambridge at any time of the year, so if you're planning a getaway, then we can wholeheartedly recommend a visit to Cambridge to enjoy all that this wonderful City has to offer.
Here are our recommendations for some things to do whilst you're here...
Fancy something a bit different? Why not give ice skating on Parker’s Piece a go? As well as the ice rink, you can enjoy a circus, Santa’s Grotto, English Christmas Market and fairground rides. There is also an Alpine bar if you fancy a fresh crepe to accompany your cappuccino or latte. See further information or call 01223 632121 to book tickets.
Treat the family to a performance of Aladdin at the Cambridge Arts Theatre. Tickets are from £35 per person.
Enjoy a spine tingling performance of Nine Lessons and Carols at Kings College Chapel. Truly a highlight of the whole year here in Cambridge. This is an incredibly popular event therefore get there early. It is advised to start queueing at 9am.
Experience 100 years of rolling and mayhem with the Granchester Barrel Race. This is guaranteed to be a fun event for all the family. The chaos kicks off opposite the Rupert Brooke pub and restaurant which is a 50 minute walk from the centre of Cambridge across Granchester Meadows. Charity donations are welcomed but it is a free event.
The perfect activity for hen parties, staff socials and birthday groups. Take in wonderful views of the college backs whilst enjoying a leisurely wine tasting in a chauffered punt along the river Cam.
See the magnificent views of Cambridge from the tower at Great St. Mary's. Visit this fascinating historic church, first home of the University - there's also a gift shop, and you can do brass rubbings too!
Park the car at Newham and walk along the river to the beautiful little village of Granchester. Enjoy afternoon tea in the iconic Orchard Tea Rooms, the haunt of early 20th Century authors and poets.
Shepreth Wildlife Park is situated a short drive from Cambridge and offers a great day out for all the family.
Do what Cambridge folk do and explore the city by bike - what better way to see the sights! Hire a bike from City Cycle Hire.
