With the latest quarantine restrictions placed on several overseas destinations, the great British staycation is an increasingly popular choice.
The continuing relaxation of restrictions up and down the country has meant that whilst most people aren’t yet confident enough to hop on a plane and venture outside the country, trips within the UK are on the rise as people look to treat the entire family with a break away from home. Cambridge has always been a hit with city break seekers from near and far, and post-lockdown life certainly shouldn’t change that.
Here we take a closer look at the reasons to visit Cambridge, and why the charm and character of the city can still be enjoyed as the nation recovers from Covid-19.
There are tons of things to do and see
Whilst it may not be the case of ‘business as usual’ for many attractions across the country, there’s still a long list of things to do and to see throughout Cambridgeshire.
As well as admiring the city’s stunning architecture, exploring Cambridge’s famous university grounds is a must for any visitor.
Some of Cambridge University’s buildings and facilities are now open to a limited number of visitors with restrictions, although online booking is essential.
There are several attractions to explore outside too, with punting, the Botanic Gardens and the Cambridgeshire Fens just some of the attractions and activities to add to your itinerary.
It’s not only beautiful, but it’s also really (really) beautiful
Cambridge is a stunning place that’s full of character, charm, history, and heritage. From its stunning architecture to its picturesque green spaces, there’s a lot to love about this small but perfectly formed city. It’s a pretty place so make sure that smartphone is fully charged as there’re plenty of idyllic scenes to snap.
There’s a great food and drink scene to explore
Delving into a city’s food and drink scene is one of the easiest, quickest and most enjoyable ways to appreciate a destination, and Cambridge is full of great places to eat and drink.
Many restaurants throughout the city have prioritised al fresco dining to ensure their great quality fayre can be relished by all and a whole new dining experience enjoyed. Here’s a rundown of the best al fresco dining haunts in Cambridge to get you started on your journey to foodie heaven.
Cambridge’s pubs are also famous in their own right and are well worth exploring as a result. We’ll let Travel Memories talk you through the city’s most celebrated drinking holes:
“The Eagle is Cambridge’s most well-known pub, having been the watering hole of choice for many a renowned academic, including Nobel Prize-winning scientists Crick and Watson, credited with discovering DNA. Or try the Granta, which sits in a pretty setting, with a terrace overhanging a millpond.
Fort St George, next to the River Cam is the ideal summertime pub and recently hosted royal visitors the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge while St Radegund may be the city’s smallest pub but it has an impressive selection of real ales that belies its size.”
