Chilling out in Cambridge, UK

23 May 2006  Cambridge Academic from Canada
4.0 of 5 bubbles based on 5 votes

Visiting Cambridge this summer? Here's a list of great restaurants and must sees that go beyond the typical tourist traps. We're Canadians that have been living/studying in Cambridge for the past year - we've had lots of family and friends visit us since we've been over here, and these are the sights and bites we share with them!

  • Category: Perfect weekend
  • 1. Scudamore's Punting Company Cambridge

    Punting the River Cam - a great way to see the college backs and the city sights. This company is reputable, as are a few others. Be sure to pack some champagne and pastries, and a blanket to snuggle in. Suitable for all ages and also for groups. If you know a college member, ask them to take you on a college punt instead and save money!

  • 2. Evensong at Kings College Chapel

    Evensong services are sung by King's College Choir from Tuesdays to Sundays, and on Mondays by the College's mixed-voice choir, King's Voices. Evensong is held at 5:30pm except Sundays, when it is 3:30. You don't need to dress up, be a usual church-goer, or stay for the entire service. It's lovely!

  • 3. The Bridge Restaurant, Waterbeach

    Worth the 10 minute drive north out of Cambridge. It's on the river, has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, is completely non-smoking (a rare find!) and the food is as great as the service. They do not take reservations so arrive before 7pm.

  • 4. The Fort St George Pub

    Relax, have a pint, and people watch from the covered and heated patio of the Fort St George pub. Good food, friendly people.
