Things to see and do in Cambridge

The classic spot to visit is King’s College Chapel.
Next to it are the vibrant market and the Church of St Mary the Great – where you can climb up the tower for the best views.

If you love art, go visit the nearby Fitzwilliam Museum:
This spacious, beautiful museum holds an amazing collection.

Botticelli’s masterpiece Venus and Mars is its newest display, exploring ideas of sex and power, gender and the body through classical mythology and Italian art of the 1400s and 1500s.

Another (free!) museum we like is located around the corner from the conference:
The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

If you prefer being in nature, there’s a wonderful fix down the road:
The Botanical Gardens, run by Cambridge University, boasting a global plant collection and natural historical charm.
