Summer in Cambridge

by MirkaKripac

Hello,

We are going for a business trip and a vacation to Cambridge (June 16 - August 28) and most of the time we'll stay there. We are a family with a 6 year old boy.
Please, do you know what kind of a program we can find there for our son?

We have been thinking about biking. Please, do you have any suggestion how to arrange 3 bikes (and helmets) for 2 months?

Best regards,
Mirka.

Hi -

there is a specialist cycle hire place next to Cambridge Railway Station. It looks like they have reasonable rates for longer term hire - see:

Cheers,

Jeremy

RE: Summer in Cambridge

There are many cycle hire places in Cambridge but the station one is ok. As it is flat here it is easy cycling, but I would recommend you cycle to Grantchester from Newnham. The cycle path takes you along the river and when you get there (journey no longer than 15 minutes) stop for a drink and cake at the Orchard garden. Just ask someone where it is.

We have a public swimming pool also on parkers Peice which has fun sessions (search for Parkside Pools cambridge for timetable) with two good flume rides, and a small pool.

Travel Tips for Cambridge

It's hard to see from this...

by steventilly

It's hard to see from this picture, but the clock tower of New Court has no clock! This is because it lost in the race to complete building works against one of the other colleges! Strike me down for not remembering which one!! The clock in the tower of this other college apparently strikes the hour twice, once for itself and once for New Court!!

Local semi professional football

by soundchaseruk

When staying in Cambridge why not see some local football ? Cambridge City FC are located on Milton Road behind the Westbrooke centre offices, and play Tuesday nights and Saturdays from August to May.

It is a freindly club where you can buy a drink, get some food, and mix with the fans, players and officials after the game. Attendances are about 500 and it is a safe place from children. Established for 100 years in 2008 many celebrations are being organised. It is just 20 minutes walk from the City centre and 10 minutes from the river.

visit the Stained Glass Museum in Ely Cathedral

by katerina-dale

Ely Cathedral is a wonderful church inside and it has lovely stained glass.

Within the Cathedral, there is a Stained Glass Museum which is woth visiting. You need to pay separately to enter the Museum.

At Summer or during Spring it is even more enjoyable.

Cheaper Shopping

by Sophie1980 about Market Square

Market Square is right outside the Guild Hall, the huge building with the clock! It's literally a quare and has lots of individual sellers with good such as fruit and veg., cheeses, vegetarian delights, sweets, flowers, hats, and second-hand clothing, records and books. All outdoors. Good atmosphere. Around the corner from King's College. Cheeses - for the hell of it. Cheap to average. The panama hats probs the most expensive buy here.

Buses

by Sophie1980

Buses are numerous and mostly reliable in the city centre, and surrounding Cambridgeshire villages.

Prices have got up quite substantially in the last few years, but if you're planning on riding the bus, get a Day Rider. It costs 3 GBP and you can use it all day. Or you can get a week pass for 8 GBP. You can buy these from the bus driver.

The main bus station is Drummer Street Bus Station. From here you can get buses to the villages, Ely and places such as Newmarket, Oxford, Bath and Milton Keynes. The National Express also runs next to the station, with the ticket office opposite. They run buses to Heathrow, Gatwick and Stanstead airports, Liverpool, Newcastle, Birmingham, just to name a few. National Express prices are very reasonable, especially if you book in advance (it's like Greyhound) or have a student/senior citizen discount. Beware though - if you're planning on going to the airport, make sure you book your ticket early, because whenever I've travelled, it's been very busy, no matter what time of day.

Exit out of Drummer St. and you'll enter Emmanuel Street. Here you'll find the Citi buses running around the city centre, and to the train station.
