Why Cambridgeshire?

Cambridgeshire has so much to offer from the famous University City to the beautiful landscape of the Fenlands. Visitors to Cambridge can enjoy Guided Tours in the City, some excellent shopping, and also punting on the River Cam which is an increasingly popular activity, either by Chauffeur Punt or do-it-yourself!

To get away from it all a day exploring the Fenlands is recommended to appreciate the distinctive landscape, either cycling or walking and not forgetting a visit to the beautiful City of Ely on the way.


Cambridge

Cambridge is most well known for its University and being home to King's College Chapel, which is remembered for its stunning architecture and fan-vaulted ceiling. There are plenty of tours to enjoy the city and the colleges, plus many shops in the Grand Arcade shopping centre.

A river trip on the River Cam is a must as you can see the beautiful gardens of 'The Backs'. Then after this, you should enjoy afternoon tea in the lovely Orchard Tea Rooms. These tea rooms were founded in 1987.

If you are interested in art you will be inspired by and in awe of all the beautiful museums and art galleries, Cambridge has to offer. Take a trip through the small and narrow passages set around the market place and discover an array of interesting independent shops and boutiques.


Things To Do in Cambridge

Visit Cambridge organises guided tours of Cambridge with highly qualified Blue and Green Guides. A guided tour of Cambridge, the University and colleges, is the best way to see Cambridge.

The best way to explore the city and surrounding countryside is by cycling. The city has over 80 miles of cycle lanes and routes and so is a city made for cycling. Many people cycle and you'll see the vast amount of bicycles whilst exploring Cambridge.

The Cambridge Cycle Map includes cycle routes in the city and to the surrounding villages as well as cycle information and useful contacts.


Punting and Boating

Just like visiting the University colleges, Punting is a must when visiting Cambridge. It provides visitors with the best view to see how buildings are connected with the most historical colleges in Cambridge whilst relaxing in your own boat. You can either hire a chauffeur to punt for you or make your way along the River Cam in a self-hired punt and take part in one of Cambridge's most famous past time.


Museums & Galleries

Cambridge boasts the country's highest number of internationally renowned collections outside of London. Most of the University's eight museums are free to enter and offer information about the various exhibitions. As well as the large galleries, there is a whole host of independent galleries and exhibitions showcasing artists from the UK and abroad.

Explore The Whipple Museum of Science, University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology or lose yourself in the art at the Ruskin Gallery, Fitzwilliam Museum or Kettle's Yard. South of Cambridge is the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, one of the world's most exciting aviation heritage sites with around 200 aircraft on display.


Gardens

If you are interested in horticulture, Cambridge will not disappoint. Enjoy the open gardens situated across the city that has made Cambridge into the beautiful place it is. Christ's Pieces and Jesus Green and The Back's provide visitors with stunning views all year round.

Many of the University colleges have the wonderfully designed and cultivated gardens that are open throughout the year and there is also the University Botanical Gardens, a 40-acre oasis of beautifully landscaped gardens and greenhouses, that is a short distance from the city centre.


South Cambridgeshire

South Cambridgeshire offers the perfect opportunity to relax and explore the countryside. Wimpole Hall and Home Farm is Cambridgeshire's largest stately home which gardens were designed by the famous historical gardener Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. As well as its impressive grounds, Wimpole Hall is a great day for all the family as visitors can take part in a variety of activities such as grooming donkeys, collecting eggs and seeing the pigs, sheep and cattle that live on its farm.

More attractions for the family include Linton Zoo and Shepreth Wildlife Park and The Orchard Tea Gardens. For those who enjoy the wine, you should visit Chilford Hall, Cambridgeshire's working vineyard.
