Best Things To Do & Days Out In Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

Education is the name of the game when you're looking for things to do in Cambridge with the kids.

Home to one of the UK’s most prestigious universities, there are lots of opportunities to learn through activities and engagement during Cambridge family days out. The Science Centre will inspire children to ask questions and discover how things work through interactive workshops and exhibitions.

Keep the lab coat on for The Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences for a trip through 500 million years of Earth’s history, while the Whipple Museum of the History of Science features science equipment dating as far back as the Middle Ages.

Back in the present day enjoy the great outdoors at the Cambridge University Botanic Garden. The 40 acres of beautiful gardens and glasshouses are ripe for exploration as children study and sketch plants from all around the world.

See more of the city sights and bring the whole family together on The Cambridge Mystery Treasure Trail. Buy or download the map, solve the clues and spot the landmarks as you make your way around the city learning its secrets as you go.
