Popped in here to get some information about Cambridge but they only open till 5 on a Saturday. We needed help on Sunday!!! Surely in a city like Cambridge the office should be open ALL the time? We were recently in Alta Norway a town of 16,000 above the Artic Circle and their office was open on a Sunday!!!!

We tend not to purchase souvenirs, but found something we just "had" to have here. Good selection of items to tempt even the most discerning customer!

We llive near Cambridge but as we have visitors from abroad staying next week we thought we would get some up to date information from the Tourist Centre. I can only describe the lady behind the desk as extremely unhelpful and rude. She showed no interest and gave no real information other than selling us a basic map. After a... More

Lot of punt operators will surround you nearby... More
