Fun Places in Cambridge to take your Kids

К сожалению, эта страница еще не переведена на ваш язык...

    Heritage and history are Cambridge's biggest draws, but there are lots of exciting activities and attractions for families. On clear days, not far from the city centre, you'll find an array of family-pleasing open-air visitor attractions. Options range from aviation nostalgia to wildlife conservation. All are easy to reach by bus or car. For rainy days, cinemas and theatres present films and shows for young audiences.

    Cambridge and its surroundings are pancake-flat, so this is ideal cycling territory even for little legs. There are miles of car-free bike trails. Cycling along the River Cam is a delight. Kids will also like paddling a 2-seater kayak on the river, as long as their parent is doing most of the work. Besides, spooky stories abound in Cambridge. A spine-chilling ghost tour will give kids something to tell their buddies back home. There are tales of haunted college rooms, landlords, phantoms in English Civil War uniforms, and a legendary ghost dog. Fearless families can join a guided ghost walk through this city of spectres. Follow us through a selection of Cambridge’s great attractions for kids.
