Top Cambridge Dates

When it comes to date ideas, Cambridge is brimming with choice. From crowning spires, classic pubs, and bustling bistros, there’s no need to toss a coin to decide  here are our top Cambridge dates to help you on the road to romance.

  • Follow in the footsteps of ancient alumni by wondering around the Great Court at Trinity College. It is the ideal place to start soaking in the city's history and architecture
  • As with Oxford, one of Cambridge’s more adventurous pastimes is punting. A great place to start is Scudamore’s Punting, here you'll get the opportunity to enjoy a tour of the city at your own pace.
  • A great way to take in the city and avoid achy feet is to take a City-Sightseeing bus. The red hop-on, hop-off open top bus stops at 21 places all over the city.
  • Meet under the ‘old gas lamp’, and go for a stroll in amongst Parker's Piece. Known as the 'Reality Checkpoint' by the students, it is supposed to mark the point where cosy college life meets the town proper.
  • Impress your date: Accompany him or her on a treasure hunt around famous city centre landmarks through an organised tour or make one yourself. In occasional clues, ask each other questions so you find out more about each other.
  • To take the pressure off the ‘small talk’, why not go and listen to a band or take in some comedy at the Cambridge Junction? The venue is also a mecca for theatre and dance. And it will give you both plenty to chat about.

Whether you’re looking for Cambridge University dating or are a local out to meet new people, the city has plenty of places to eat no matter whether you want an intimate date or a more relaxed meeting. Here’s our hand-picked selection of the best romantic restaurants in Cambridge:
