Museum
“Recently voted the East of England's most popular free attraction, you can visit this spectacular building - and see the more than half a million artworks in its collection - for nothing! The Trumpington Street museum contains some remarkable collections from the ancient world. A very good option for a rainy day”

History Museum
“Wonderful displays and amazing air shows. You can get there using train from Great Chesterford to Whittlesford Parkway then choice of 7a bus (timetables not frequent) or 45 minute walk or book a taxi from Whittlesford Station to IWM. Or use a taxi direct there. If you are happy to park at Duxford it is only 3 miles way but leave in good time on Airshow days as it gets busy. ”

“If you fancy a short break and a pint or a glass of prosecco during your sightseeing, then the Eagle is the one for you. Interesting fact: it was the pub where Francis Crick announced that he and James Watson had discovered DNA (and they were right!) The old large pub also includes an RAF bar with graffiti of Second World War airmen covering the ceiling and walls. The Eagle serves a mean fish and chips.”

Restaurant
“2-star Michelin. Modern British. 2018 will be Midsummer House’s 20th anniversary and its history is fascinating. This Victorian villa is on Midsummer Common on the banks of the River Cam amongst a number of Cambridge University Colleges. The service matches the cooking, the wine list is majestic but the bill can be a little wince-worthy. Its style is theatrical and melding of utter technical brilliance with a wild imagination, this restaurant is among the most unforgettably good in Britain today, and it would be unpardonably vulgar to put a price on that. Simply our favourite​ place to eat in Cambridge for a special occasion​ - book well in advance!”
