Cambridge is a city built on academic credentials and prestige. You can barely move for exquisite university buildings, cobbled streets, picturesque green spaces, book shops, museums, sculptures and cyclists. This is also a place admired for its quirky customs.

So if you want to know the difference between blues and subfusc, what time the Great Court Run takes place and whether it really was Isaac Newton who built the Mathematical Bridge, start your voyage of discovery from one of our Cambridge hotels.

What to do in Cambridge


The Fitzwilliam

‘The Fitz’ is a monolith of a museum that belongs to the University of Cambridge. Packed with over half a million artefacts and works of art from the ancient, medieval and modern worlds, you’ll definitely need to pace yourself. 


The Backs
The Backs = Cambridge at its most visually iconic. Referring to the land behind the riverside colleges, think weeping willows, watching punts go by and amazing vistas. It’s also where you can spy the Mathematical Bridge and The Bridge Of Sighs.  

 

Take a punt
Weekend breaks in Cambridge aren’t complete until you’ve been punting along the River Cam. Let someone else do the arm-work on a chauffeur-driven ride, or else take matters into your own hands and steer your own course. 


Kettle’s Yard
Kettle’s Yard is what having friends in high places looks like. Once the home of Tate curator Jim Ede, it’s now an intimate gallery exhibiting the output of Jim’s artistic pals. Expect to see works by Miro, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. 


King’s College Chapel
King’s College Chapel is a vision in stained glass and Gothic architecture. Taking over 100 years to build, it’s awe-inspiring as a building and culturally key as home of the world-famous King’s College Choir. 


Cycling

Take advantage of Cambridge’s cycling friendliness on a Cambridge Bike Tour. Choose from antique bikes with baskets, mountain or electric bikes. Or, take your cycling tour of Cambridge to the next level and hire a tandem from Blue Yonder. Follow The Academic route to check out the colleges and eat cake. River Pubs tour highly recommended.
