Are you coming to Bellerbys Cambridge in September? We’ve put together our top five favourite things to do in Cambridge to help you get to know your new city a little better.


Visit the market

The Cambridge market is situated right in the centre of town. Once you’ve found it, you’ll re-visit it many times during your stay. It’s full of unique gifts and reasonably priced souvenirs that you can take home to your friends and family. There are lots of places you can eat on the market too. The lovely lady at the Thai food stall is always happy to serve you some of the best Thai food around and the fresh fruit juice at the fruit and vegetable stall is delicious. 


Go punting

Punting is the biggest tourist attraction in Cambridge. The punters work all year round, even in the middle of winter. You can go on a guided tour along the river with a chauffeur who will tell you some interesting stories about all of the Cambridge University colleges along the way. Or, you can hire a punt yourself. Punting looks much easier than it is, so we recommend you take the guided tour first. Punting is a very relaxing way to spend the afternoon and take some great photos too. 


The Fitzwilliam Museum

The Fitzwilliam Museum is a fantastic exhibition of art and antiques from periods such as the Victorians and the Egyptians. The outside of the building itself is spectacular and the rooms are filled with fascinating things. Make sure you put aside at least two hours to look around.


Relax on Parkers Piece 

Parkers Piece is not only one of Cambridge’s most famous parks, it is also where the rules of football were created back in 1863! People often go there to sit and read a book, meet their friends, play some sport and even revise for their exams. Many events are held at Parkers Piece, from festivals to the winter ice rink. It’s a very vibrant part of the city. 


Hire a bike

One of the most popular ways to get around Cambridge is to cycle. It’s cheap, quick, safe and keeps you healthy too. It’s no wonder Cambridge is known as a model cycling city.
