Places To Go in Cambridge

Cambridge is a historic university city in East Anglia. Where is that?

As a rule, Cambridge is generally liberal and most people are easy-going so it's a fairly good place to go out and enjoy yourself. You may get the odd "funny look" or encounter one or two idiots, but things seem to be good.

Some of our members venture out dressed to the local shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs from time-to-time (and discuss it on the tgcamb Yahoo group forum). This page provides some guidance about places to go in Cambridge, based on our members' personal experiences.

NOTE: Remember that this guidance is based on personal experience on particular days: it's always possible you'll have a different experience when you go out. If you have a good or a bad experience, please let us know so we can update this page. If you ever feel threatened, the management of the venue should help you, and calling the police should result in fast assistance (such as if you're leaving a club and are worried about being assaulted outside).


The following tables provide a summary and links to more detailed reviews. The following links will take you straight to the detailed reviews themselves.
