View of River, Punt and University, Cambridge

Close the door on your Cambridge hotel and explore the cobbled courtyards and shady gardens of some of the city’s 31 colleges before retiring for Pimm’s beside the River Cam.

Historic Cambridge

Mug up on Gothic revivalism at the best example of it in England at All Saints Church on Jesus Lane. For sublime choral evensong as heard by students Milton and Darwin, Christ’s College choir enchants twice weekly.

Art and museums in Cambridge

Autograph scores by Handel, early prints of Hardy classics and thousands more precious items sit in the Fitzwilliam Museum. At the University Museum of Zoology Darwin’s Beagle tour animals can be found. The university’s Kettle’s Yard is a home to 20th-century and contemporary art.

Quirky things to do in Cambridge

Leave your Cambridge hotel and have a kick about on Parker’s Piece, where Football Association rules were formed in the 19th century. Outside the Taylor Library at Corpus Christi College is the Grasshopper Clock. The gold disc has no numbers but tells the time by opening slits in the clock face. A ghastly creature on top moves its mouth and seems to gobble the minutes.

Events in Cambridge

Cambridge Folk Festival hosts global names from Los Lobos and the Saw Doctors to Eddi Reader and Booker T. The 800-year-old Midsummer Fair on Midsummer Common hosts gigs, stand-up, kids’ acts and a fun fair.
