The University City of Cambridge is the perfect
destination to visit on a weekend. There are numerous
historic attractions and great shopping along with plenty
of fine restaurants and outlets to enjoy a great meal.
It is best to make your hotel reservations in advance especially
during the months of May – June, when the hotels in Central
Cambridge are packed with revellers and tourists, who drop along to
join the celebrations in the city after the exams.
One of the best places to stay in Central Cambridge is The
Tamburlaine Hotel, a fine 4 star accommodation that is located in
the heart of the city. Some of the best places to enjoy a meal at in
Aromi: It is a popular eating joint with locals as well as visitors to Cambridge. On a Sunday
afternoon you will probably need to queue up to get a table. It would be ideal if you could
make your reservations in advance to avoid a long wait. They offer a fine spread of Italian
delicacies that include cannoli, focaccia, ricotta brownies, paninos and lots of varieties of
sumptuous ice creams to choose from. It is one place you definitely need to visit on an
empty stomach. It is ideal to have a meal at, or order a pick-up to enjoy a Sunday picnic at
any of the wooded areas on a sunny afternoon in the city.
6 Ice Cream: It is another of those fabulous eateries that is concealed in a cosy spot on
Bene't Street, which is a great place to visit if you are foodie. 6 Ice Cream is incredibly
popular and packed with patrons most days of the week. With stylish interiors, a warm and
cosy ambience and a titillating range of ice-creams and other delicacies, it is a much sought
after destination when you feel like indulging yourself in a sweet treat. Try their signature
Cambridge Cream that comes infused with salted pistachios, lavender and orange sorbet.
Definitely a place to visit when in the area!
Smokeworks: If you are looking for pure comfort food there is no place better than
Smokeworks! It is so amazingly good that you will want to visit the place every time you visit
Cambridge. Whether it is their delicious barbecue or pulled pork, it is a terrific place to
head out to for a spot of lunch. It can get very busy so make sure to book your table in
advance. Having a meal at Smokeworks is a delightful experience not to be missed! Whether
you order their pork brisket with beef mash or prefer to sample their delightful pulled
chicken burger with bacon jam, you will be in seventh heaven after you dine here. And do not
miss their selection of desserts and tempting milkshakes after a meal. It is a surreal dining
experience to have a meal here!
