When you book a trip to a new city or unknown destination, whether at home or abroad, it is important to have an idea of the things you definitely want to see and do so you don’t go home with a nagging feeling of having missed out. Having even a casual itinerary in place allows you to relax and enjoy your trip to its fullest, knowing that you have plenty of time to see all of the places that most appeal.
There are lots of different places to stay in Cambridge of course, many of which are close to some of the city’s most iconic sights.

In addition to beautifully appointed rooms which echo the city’s history, you can expect plenty of local knowledge and staff eager to help you discover our corner of Britain and see Cambridge at its very best.
If you are staying at The Tamburlaine Hotel, our local experts say you can’t miss these iconic sights nearby:
King’s College Chapel
King’s College Chapel is one of the most recognisable sights in Cambridge and it is an iconic piece of history. No list of iconic sights would be complete without its gothic edifice and sand coloured brick making an appearance close to the top of the charts. The chapel dates back to 1446 and it is still in use today. Visitors can take a tour of the building and attend services.
Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial
Though not for everyone, the Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial is one of the most visited attractions in the city. The cemetery itself contains the remains of over 3,000 dead military members and over 5,000 names of missing people from a variety of battles. It is a solemn but informative look into history.
St. John’s College
As one of the most famous colleges in Cambridge, St. John’s College is a popular place for locals and tourists alike. Visitors can explore the impressive premises and find out more about the history of the college on organised tours.
The Corpus Clock
The Corpus Clock was unveiled in 2008 and therefore it is a relatively new addition to Cambridge’s aesthetic. It offers an impressive contrast between the old architecture and new technology and is a great addition to the city.
Bridge of Sighs
The Bridge of Sighs is one of Cambridge’s main tourist attractions. Designed by architect Henry Hutchinson in 1831, the bridge crosses the River Cam between St. John’s College’s Third Court and New Court. It is a Grade I listed building.
As a city, Cambridge’s main iconic sights are all relatively close to each other, making it a friendly and easy to navigate city. The Tamburlaine Hotel Cambridge is right in the historic heart, so all you need do is remember to bring comfortable shoes and your camera!
