If you’d like a day out that’s a little less hectic than London, Cambridge is the perfect option. It only takes around 40 minutes to reach Cambridge from our Stansted hotel. Set off early and you’ll have a whole day to explore.

Cambridge University

The University of Cambridge is the second oldest university in the world next to Oxford. It is made up of 31 colleges, and you can visit many of them for free. Be sure to visit the breath-taking King’s College. Building began in 1446 and took over a century to complete. Marvel at the Chapel, the most beautiful building in Cambridge, and home to the world-famous Chapel choir.

Walking tours of Cambridge

A great way to see Cambridge is to book a guided walking tour and soak up local knowledge and secrets from an experienced guide. For the more daring, book a Cambridge Ghost Tour and encounter a darker side of this historic town. The Cambridge City Sightseeing bus is also an enjoyable way to make the most out of a short visit to the city.


Take a stroll through Cambridge General Market, which has been running since the Middle Ages in the historic Market Square. The open air market sells everything from fruit, vegetables and flowers, to meat, clothes and handmade crafts. Alternatively, visit the bustling high street shops or independent boutiques. The Cambridge Gift Shop is perfect for souvenirs.

Sunny strolls and fun bike rides

If you’re feeling active, this flat city is famously cycle-friendly. Or why not hire a punt? These renowned flat-bottomed boats form part of a favourite Cambridge pastime. Hop aboard and experience the beauty of Cambridge from the serene River Cam. The city is also full of green areas that were made for lazy afternoon strolls.
