Family Days Out, Ideas, Things to do
Cambridge with Kids
“I really like playing in the park on Jesus Green. We can play frisbee and crawl on the big spider net in the playground. I also like going with Granny to see the whale bones at the Zoology Museum. They are ginormous!”

Explore The city
Are you stuck doing the same thing with your children? Or are you a first time visitor to Cambridge? These ideas are all taken from the Cambridge with Kids Guide. Written by a local parent with two boys. Fed up of trawling the internet, she thought it would be handy to have the information in one place. After all, being a parent is busy enough!
From toddlers to teens, Cambridge has a lot to offer families. Kayak on the River Cam. Test your skills climbing walls or archery. Spot the carvings of animals on college walls. Play football on Parker’s Piece. Splash about in Lammas Land paddling pool. Cycle to Grantchester and sit in a deckchair in the apple orchard. Whatever you’d like to do, find some inspiration here.
