The historic city of Cambridge is one of the finest in all of the UK with many highlights for every type of visitor.

There are a few obvious highlights which are all worth visiting, but there are also a number of hidden gems which will help you to escape the tourists and help you to have a more authentic experience here.

Read on to find out more about these hidden gems found throughout Cambridge.

The Centre for Computing History

Cambridge is world-famous for being at the forefront of education. Cambridge University is an obvious highlight, but it is also worthwhile visiting the fascinating Centre for Computing History museum which tells the fascinating story of the transformative Information Age.

This museum features interactive exhibits, educational workshops, activities, events and much more.

All Saints Church

The architecture found throughout Cambridge is something to behold. The stunning All Saints Church is just one highlight and a notable example of English Gothic Revival.

Found on Jesus Lane in the heart of the city, All Saints Church features one of the best-preserved Anglo-Catholic interiors in all of England. You can easily reach this highlight and others simply by catching a train to Cambridge and then exploring on foot.

Monster Slide

If you are visiting Cambridge with little ones then you will certainly want to check out the superb monster slide found at the lovely Coleridge recreation ground.

This urban park can be a nice escape from the city with a playground, paddling pool, sports facilities and much more so if the weather is nice then this is highly worth a visit.

Castle Hill

Castle Hill is one of the best spots for views of the city and beyond and another nice green area if the weather is nice. It is the site of the original Iron Age fort and, although there are no ruins, it is a spot of significant historical importance.

Cherry Hinton Hall

Cherry Hinton Hall is a stunning house and park just south of the city but owned and managed by the local council. Here you will find neatly maintained grounds, a beautiful lake and former bird sanctuary and much more.

These are just a few of the hidden gems found throughout Cambridge but there are many more to discover. This is a beautiful and historic city with highlights for every type of visitor, including both major attractions and many hidden gems too.
