Raise a glass to Cambridge!


This week marks the 41st Cambridge Beer Festival, which is being held on Jesus Green, in the heart of the city.

During its long run, the festival has had several homes but since 2001 has been held on Jesus Green in late May.

The festival is the United Kingdom’s longest running CAMRA beer festival and currently the second largest regional beer festival.


The festival features a wide range of local and national beers of all styles, as well as cider, perry, mead, wine and bottled & draught beers from around the world.

The festival is also famous for its CAMRA Cheese Counter, where a very wide range of fine cheeses, together with locally produced bread, pork pies, ham and other savoury items are available.

Why not walk off the effects of the beer with a Tourist Tracks MP3 Audio Walking Tour?

As well as Jesus Green, our 60-minute City Life and Open Spaces walk discovers some of Cambridge’s lesser-known attractions, as well as its famous green spaces, including Midsummer Common, Parker’s Piece, Peterhouse, Pembroke College and the Fitzwilliam Museum.

Our Classic Cambridge tour winds through the ancient city, taking in classic sights such as Kings’ College, Queens’ College, Trinity College, The Mathematical Bridge and The Backs.
