Best time to visit Cambridge

Imagine strolling along colleges which look like they are made out of sugar in the bright sunlight, wandering through quaint passages set around the historic market place, getting your culture kick at interesting museums and art galleries or spreading out your picnic in one of the many parks or commons. All of this wouldn’t have been here if it wasn’t for a group of rebel students in Oxford in the 13th century, who had a dispute with the locals and decided to move North from London.


Cambridge is a beautiful city and every season has its attraction. In the spring, flowers in the parks and college gardens creating a stunning tapestry. Summertime is the perfect season to hit the river in a punt, canoe or kayak or enjoy Alfresco dining and relax with a drink at one of the many terraces or parks. Summer is also the time of the open air theatre Shakespeare productions in the college gardens! When the temperature begins to drop in Autumn, the mornings are hazy, but it soon warms up and the trees start changing their colours. A perfect time to visit galleries, museums and start shopping for Christmas.


Winter time can be fairy tale like, especially when Cambridge is covered under a layer of snow. Despite the cold weather, Cambridge is a perfect place to spend some time.


And what about the Foodie side of Cambridge? The scene is heating up here. New restaurants are opening all the time, there are fantastic cookery courses to attend and wonderful boutique hotels in which to stay. How many more excuses do you need to visit Cambridge?
