Be a guest at our Holiday Inn® Cambridge hotels and lose yourself among magnificent college buildings dating back hundreds of years or relax on quiet, shady riverbanks a stone’s throw from the city center.
Step out of our hotels in Cambridge and within minutes you will be admiring the wide-open space of Trinity College Great Court, flanked on all sides by historic college buildings. The most famous landmark in Cambridge is Kings' College Chapel. The first stone of the medieval chapel was laid by Henry VI in 1441, but the building wasn’t completed until a century later. Behind the colleges lies "The Backs"—as the banks of the River Cam are known. Away from the bustle of the city center, The Backs are a tree-shaded oasis where visitors and locals can hire punts (flat-bottomed boats) and experience life in the slow lane.
Guests in our Cambridge hotels can enjoy unique shopping in a variety of stores. Unlike many British cities, Cambridge has managed to retain many of the unique boutiques that have disappeared from other high streets. Browse the small galleries on King's Parade and gift shops on narrow Sidney Street. You’ll have little trouble finding a good read when you stay in our hotels in Cambridge: antiquarian and specialist bookshops can be found all over town. Whether you are looking for a light bite or something more substantial, the restaurants and cafes along Trumpington Street opposite the Fitzwilliam Museum cater to many palates.
Stay in one of our Cambridge hotels and discover this historic university town. Come in July and August for the famous Cambridge Folk Festival on the grounds of Cherry Hinton Hall, or on Christmas Eve, when the celebrated choir at King's College Chapel performs "The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols."
