Out and about in Cambridge – while your Mac is being upgraded

Being a little outside of the main shopping districts of historic Cambridge has it advantages. There is plenty of free parking and many fewer people on the pavements taking pictures of the historical sites.

However; some of our upgrades take a few hours and if you are travelling some distance to see us (we had some visitors from Manchester the other day) you may want to see the sights. Here is a list of local attractions which you can spend a couple of hours (or longer if you wish) whilst you Mac gets a speed boast!

Places to go:

 Imperial War Museum at  Duxford: Costs from £ 17.50 per Adult – children under 15 are free. 5 miles from our offices. Directions from the office

Wandlebury Country Park: Free to enter, £2 for parking. Over 8 miles of country walks in mature woodlands. 4.5 miles from the offices. Directions

Cambridge Botanical Gardens: £4.50 per adult. Plants from all over the world displayed in a 40-acre oasis of gardens and glasshouses. 6.5 miles from the offices. Parking a bit difficult. Directions

Shepreth Wildlife park: A great time out with the kids. Fanastic wildlife park and children’s attraction. Adults £10.95 children £8.95 9.5 miles from the offices. Directions

Wimpole Hall Estate and home farm: A working estate still guided by the seasons, with an impressive mansion and Home Farm. Admission from £4 per adult. 15 miles from the offices. Directions

Or make a day of it in Cambridge town centre. Punting in the summer, or the amazing Cambridge museums there is a lot to see and do in Cambridge

Best bet for access is to use the Babraham Park and ride to avoid the expensive and very full town centre car parks. Parking for £1 for the day with £2.70 for the return bus fare. Directions
