Christmas in Cambridge

With so much going on in the city and the surrounding areas, Cambridge is a great place to visit during the Christmas Season.

Whether you fancy a spot of Christmas shopping for that unique Christmas gift, a visit to Santa's Grotto or feel the need for a relaxing New Year’s getaway - Cambridge has so much to offer over the festive period - The North Pole Christmas Festival, including an outdoor Ice Skating Rink and The Big Switch On are just a few of the things to keep you entertained until the new year!

Sometimes its difficult to know how to keep yourself occupied between Christmas and the new year - here are some of our suggestions for keeping yourself (and the in-laws) entertained during this period.

Some of us might get a little bit claustrophobic over the Christmas season - why not get out of the house and enjoy all of the wonderful family attractions, walks and outdoor activities that we've got to help you burn off your Christmas extravagances?

Cambridge and Beyond is the perfect destination for families at any time of the year but at Christmas time, its extra special. Where else will you find Santa spreading the festive cheer with a special arrival by steam train or even powering down the river by speed boat?

If you enjoy a shopping spree you will love Cambridge. The compact city boasts a wide choice of shops from daily markets to an abundance of boutiques, independent shops, high street brands and designer labels. Cambridge has it all.

After a Long Journey direct from the North Pole Father Christmas is back in Cambridge, he is looking forward to meeting  all the children in his specially prepared Grotto, this is located in the Old Court Room adjacent to the Visitor Information Centre, Peas Hill, Cambridge, CB2 3AD

The North Pole Cambridge Christmas Festival is back and back in style, giving you the opportunity to get into the spirit of Christmas throughout the festive season. Featuring an icy extravaganza in the heart of the city centre, this annual festival is centred around a stunning 600m open-air ice rink, great for a fun filled day out with family & friends.

'Tis the season to be jolly so get set to sparkle at one of the city’s lavish party nights or simply eat, drink and be merry at a quintessential English pub, contemporary restaurant or intimate brasserie – Cambridge and Beyond has something for all tastes and occasions.
