Cambridge's impressive history dates back to the Bronze Age, but it truly came into its own during the Roman and Viking eras. Now functioning as the county town of Cambridgeshire, Cambridge enjoys a strong educational prominence courtesy of its brilliant university. The University of Cambridge, founded in 1209, proudly sits among the world's best and confers Cambridge with an academic prestige that is globally recognised.

The city is also economically vibrant as the crux of the Silicon Fen, home to industries such as software and bioscience. Bearing testimony to its technological prowess, over 40% of Cambridge's workforce hold a higher education qualification, outpacing the national average by twice the measure. Cambridge is also a substantial biomedical hub, hosting the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, one of the world's most substantial biomedical research clusters.

When to visit Cambridge

The best months for good weather in Cambridge are from May to September, with the peakness of the British summer in July and August. You'll find no shortage of sunshine and warmth, making it the ideal time to explore the city indoors and out. It is also during these months that Cambridge is at its liveliest, with tourist numbers high and the city buzzing with activities and events.

However, if you prefer lower hotel prices and fewer fellow tourists, consider visiting in January or during the spring months of March and April. Despite chillier climes and a higher chance of the odd shower, Cambridge remains enchanting during these months, its historic buildings boasting a unique beauty under a blanket of snow or spring bloom. Regardless of when you choose to visit, Cambridge promises a magical escape filled with history, culture, and charm at every turn.
