Meet our

City Ambassadors

Say hello to our professional & passionate City Ambassadors, who are available within the City Centre every day of the year to help, advise & guide users around Cambridge.

Make the most of your time in Cambridge

The Ambassadors welcome nearly 60,000 visitors to Cambridge every year, answering queries and giving out free maps.

You will normally find them at their stands outside the Train Station or in the Market Square by the Guild Hall. They are also around the city on their mobile bikes which you can’t miss. As well as the distinctively smart attire, with their classic blue ties.

The Ambassadors are a multi-cultural group and speak with visitors in multiple languages.

“Writing for a living can be glorious and exciting but also mundane and insular. Cambridge is one of those places that inspires and intrigues enough to firmly favour the former but there always comes a time when we must plunge ourselves back into the pool of humanity, at least I think so. What better way to do that than to become a Cambridge Ambassador? The people, the place, the history, and the architecture are all so wonderful that ‘mundane’ is not a word I use much anymore. I still occasionally write about Cambridge but being part of it is even better!"



"Cambridge has something for everyone. My perfect day in Cambridge would start with a stroll around the colleges, a walk along the Backs and a visit to the Fitzwilliam. You might, of course, prefer to see the sights from the relative comfort of a punt or the hop on hop off bus. For me, it is hard to beat a walk along the Cam to Grantchester, which is idyllic in the summer. You can then reward yourself with tea at the famous Orchard Tea Gardens. Why not end the day by taking in a Shakespeare play at one of the colleges or relaxing with a drink on the rooftop terrace at the Varsity hotel? Whatever you do, you are sure to leave Cambridge enriched and rejuvenated, eager to return."



Cambridge is a beautiful city that I have had the pleasure of living in all my life and getting to show it off to visitors is a joy every day. There is so much history and culture to take in, there truly is something for everyone whether it is food from all over the world, colleges to visit, museums to discover the past and so much more. Enhancing peoples experience of the city is very gratifying and I hope that everyone that comes to Cambridge has an amazing time and enjoys it as much as I do



Cambridge is unique because when you arrive here the perception of time changes, probably because of all the historical buildings and beautiful college gardens. My favorite thing to do is visiting the botanical garden in Cambridge where you can be surrounded by plants from everywhere in the world.
