0 Best Cambridge Attractions Every Tourist Must See

It might be one of the most studious places in the UK, but it’s hard to get studying done when you’re surrounded by Cambridge’s beauty. The university which it is best known for is part of the charm, offering up gorgeous architecture that dates back as far as 1209. The Gothic chapels, exquisite gardens and opportunities to gain superior knowledge entice not only students, but tourists and those looking to make a home. A university town wouldn’t be complete without a plethora of museums, which of course Cambridge has plenty of. The museums focus on everything from fighter planes to impressive art, with an entire gallery focussed on Viscount Fitzwilliam’s collection of beautiful artefacts.

Top Attractions

Cambridge is a renowned education centre of England with the University of Cambridge, Kings College, Trinity College and St. John’s College. Visit the gothic Chapel at Kings and St. John’s Great Gate, dating from the sixteenth century. You must also try punting on the River Cam.

Kids & Family

Take the kids to the FitzWilliam Museum, East England’s most popular free attraction. The museum houses artifacts from Greek, Egyptian and Roman empires, from England’s own history as well as hundreds of fabulous art. They may also be interested in a visit to the Polar Museum to learn about Scott’s Polar Expedition.

Shopping & Nightlife

Cambridge has a wide range of shops within a small area, and Market Square is a great place to start. A visit to the Saturday All Saints Garden Art & Craft Market is worthwhile, too. Going out for a drink? Try the Eagle, the oldest pub in Cambridge, dating from 1525. It is very popular which means it can get crowded.

Day Tours

Take a day trip up to the city of Manchester or to the coast at Liverpool, the home of the Beatles. Go south to see Stonehenge. Or perhaps look at hiring a canal boat like the Riverboat Georgina, for a trip up some of England’s beautiful waterways.
