Say hello to our Ambassadors who welcome nearly 60,000 visitors to Cambridge every year, answering queries and giving out free maps.

Meet Haydn

For me, Cambridge has always stood apart from other towns and cities around the world and for a few simple reasons. Firstly, the sheer amount of history and endeavour scrawled on every street and present in every college is testament alone of the town’s immense importance. I’m not just talking about sciences and literature, either, but also the performing arts world of alfresco Shakespeare recitals or the exemplary satire that’s consistently pumped out by the Cambridge Footlights, to name just a couple.

Cambridge is far more than a sum of its parts and a visit is essential. When you do, the Cambridge City Ambassadors are here to help

Meet Peter

Cambridge has something for everyone. My perfect day in Cambridge would start with a stroll around the colleges, a walk along the Backs and a visit to the Fitzwilliam. You might, of course, prefer to see the sights from the relative comfort of a punt or the hop on hop off bus. For me, it is hard to beat a walk along the Cam to Grantchester, which is idyllic in the summer. You can then reward yourself with tea at the famous Orchard Tea Gardens. Why not end the day by taking in a Shakespeare play at one of the colleges or relaxing with a drink on the rooftop terrace at the Varsity hotel? Whatever you do, you are sure to leave Cambridge enriched and rejuvenated, eager to return

Meet Luke

Cambridge is a beautiful city that I have had the pleasure of living in all my life and getting to show it off to visitors is a joy every day. There is so much history and culture to take in, there is truly is something for everyone whether it is food from all over the world, colleges to visit, museums to discover the past and so much more. Enhancing peoples experience of the city is very gratifying and I hope that everyone that comes to Cambridge has an amazing time and enjoys it as much as I do

Meet Daniela

Cambridge is unique because when you arrive here the perception of time changes, probably because of all the historical buildings and beautiful college gardens. My favourite thing to do is visiting the botanical garden in Cambridge where you can be surrounded by plants from everywhere in the world.

Did you know?

The city’s name is known around the world, but it wasn’t always called Cambridge. In the Middle Ages it was known as Grantabridge, meaning the bridge over the river Granta (one of the sources of the River Cam).
