Cambridge – an inspirational city

Learn all about the best things to do in Cambridge from its historic landmarks like the King's College Chapel and the River Cam to its unique blend of traditional and modern culture.

Memory of Cambridge

Cambridge is an inspiration - its colleges are breathtaking and you can't help but peek through the ancient wooden doors to see the court yards and gardens, hidden away like treasures. You could spend the day in the bustling market square or punt lazily down the River Cam - either way, Cambridge is truly idyllic.

A perfect slice of England

You'll discover a perfect slice of England in Cambridge. Let us guide you through its breathtaking buildings, the river running along the backs of the colleges, the bustling market at the centre of it all and the many thriving shops, bookshops, pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as the best Cambridge accommodation. And of course, what it is best known for - the world-famous university. Situated in the East of England, Cambridge sits on the River Cam and has plenty to offer all year round – making it ideal for a short break or holiday in Britain.


Cambridge and the surrounding area hold an unrivalled reputation for being a centre of excellence both in learning and ambience. Now its famous Colleges are home to over 17,000 students – Kings College Chapel is a familiar image all over the world. Cambridge’s heritage also includes an outstanding record of scientific and artistic achievements – Newton, Darwin, Wordsworth, Milton, Ian McKellan, John Cleese, Emma Thompson and Zadie Smith were all educated here.


For a relatively small city, there are many things to do in Cambridge. It is rich in museums, ancient churches and historical tradition. No visit to Cambridge would be complete without seeing the Fitzwilliam Museum , with its outstanding picture collection, or the Round Church, one of only 4 round churches in Britain. And the Cambridge University Botanic Garden is one of the great secret delights of the city – Clare’s, Emmanuel’s and Newnham’s are particularly spectacular.

Cambridge had a very important role to play in Britain’s favourite sport. The first set of football rules were drawn up at the university in 1848, and were first played on Parker’s Piece. The city is also best known for its university sporting events against Oxford – most notably the rugby union Varsity Match and the Boat Race.
