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 Petty Cury street, identifiable by their distinctive bespoke purple blazers, striped ties, smart waistcoats and trilby hats. The Ambassadors represent four nationalities and speak no fewer than 13 languages between them:

Hindi: कैम्ब्रिज में आपका स्वागत है
Greek: Καλώς ήλθατε στο Cambridge
Italian: Benvenuto a Cambridge

“Imagine a place where you can meet visitors from every corner of the earth! Cambridge is culturally and linguistically probably the most diverse visitor destination in the world. Welcoming and directing this varied pool of visitors makes this job very special, unusual and interesting. I am in love with Cambridge - it’s a magical place to be, a solitary walk along the River Cam is going to melt your heart.’’



“As a city of CULTURE in all respects, Cambridge represents the quintessential heritage, knowledge and community of Britain. I feel honoured to have the opportunity to share my love for Cambridge with both locals and visitors alike whilst I discover new hidden corners of Cambridge every day.”



“For me, Cambridge has always stood apart from other towns and cities around the world and for a few simple reasons. Firstly, the sheer amount of history and endeavour scrawled on every street and present in every college is testament alone of the town’s immense importance. I’m not just talking about sciences and literature, either, but also the performing arts world of alfresco Shakespeare recitals or the exemplary satire that’s consistently pumped out by the Cambridge Footlights, to name just a couple. Cambridge is far more than a sum of its parts and a visit is essential. When you do, the Cambridge City Ambassadors are here to help.”
