Be our guest at Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Cambridge, home of Cambridge University and other renowned colleges, and before long you'll be exploring the city's stunning university architecture or sipping tea in a bustling, student-filled cafe.
Lose yourself in the celestial sounds of the King's College choir in the landmark King's College Chapel. Nineteen-year-old Henry VI laid the chapel’s first stone in 1441, but it wasn’t until the reign of Henry VIII more than 100 years later that the building was finally completed. Our Cambridge hotels are close to the city center, where you can browse the world-class art collection inside the Fitzwilliam Museum, including masterworks by Titian and van Dyck and ancient Roman and Greek artifacts. Slow down the pace and rent a punt (flat-bottomed boat) at Magdalene Bridge, not far from our hotels in Cambridge. You can cruise the quiet waters of the River Cam and admire the city's universities from a different perspective as you pass under landmark bridges. Don't miss the charmingly chaotic Mathematical Bridge behind Queen's College.
Join the student population around bustling Benet Street where pubs come alive each evening and the narrow streets are filled with good-natured chatter. Do as the students do and grab a book from one of the city's plentiful secondhand bookshops for a leisurely cafe read. A short bus ride from our Cambridge hotels takes you to waterside gastro-pubs along "The Backs" of the River Cam. On sunny days, the tree-lined riverbank is a popular hangout and a great spot to enjoy alfresco dining or picnicking by the water's edge.
Stay at our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Cambridge to explore the historic streets of this quintessential university town, or escape into the rural idyll of Cambridgeshire, with its charming chalk streams and hedgerows.
