Places to eat & drink in Cambridge.

Cambridge is renowned as one of England's two great university towns, steeped in history and tradition. It has been described as one of the most beautiful cities in Britain.

Today Cambridge is a thriving city of some 100,000 people. Its commercial heart is surrounded by fine buildings and green open spaces. The Backs, the famous grass-covered banks of the River Cam, are carpeted with crocus and daffodils in Spring. In Summer you can take a punt along the river and enjoy the architectural glories of the riverside colleges. In Autumn and Winter there are fewer visitors and the City is less crowded, but the presence of the students adds to the special atmosphere.

Cambridge has a wealth of museums and galleries covering a wide range of interests. The Corn Exchange, Junction, Arts Theatre and other venues provide programmes covering all aspects of entertainment. The Cambridge Folk Festival is held on the last weekend in July. Cambridge has many good shops. As well as department and well-known chain stores, it has many local and specialist shops and is, of course, famous for its bookshops.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Cambridge or surrounding areas.
