Trick or treat

With Halloween just around the corner, parents around the country will be helping their little ones pick out the perfect costume to scare their friends and impress neighbours in the hopes of filling their bags with treats.

If you’re looking for somewhere to take your kids this season, look no further than The Tamburlaine Hotel. The area was voted the best place in the UK to go trick or treating and our hotel deals in Cambridge will make sure your youngsters have the best Halloween experience of their lives without having to break the bank. We’ve put together a list of places and events to give you the inside scoop on all the best trick or treating spots.

East Cambridge

The streets and squares around East Cambridge have become popular spots for trick or treaters in recent years thanks to the amazing amount of effort put in by local residents – they go all out to decorate their houses ready for the spooky holiday. Cambridge Street and Charles Street are among the best places to visit. Most of the houses are very welcoming and there are always a lot of treats being handed out. If you decide to venture east from The Tamburlaine Hotel be sure to check out the Vendettis house which has been putting up decorations and inviting visitors for over 20 years.

Dudley Street

This is a perfect example of why Cambridge was voted the best area in the UK for trick or treating. Every year the residents of Dudley Street make a big deal of Halloween and spend weeks preparing for a night of frights and fun. The area is closed off to traffic to allow hundreds of costumed kids safe access to the houses. Not only is Dudley Street a great place to fill your bags with sweets, it also showcases the welcoming nature and warm spirit of Cambridge. Every year Dudley Street has a different theme so be sure to check it out this year.

Pumpkin Festival

This year, the town of Cambridge is gearing up for one of the best Halloween nights yet. To celebrate the spooky holiday and also spread awareness about being environmentally friendly, the organisers of the Pumpkin Festival have brought together a series of exciting events. This will be the third time that the event has been held in Cambridge and promises to be one of the best yet. The Pumpkin Festival is designed to teach people about the benefits of sustainable eating and help promote organic farming and a healthy diet. There will be plenty for the kids to do thanks to the farmers market and the pop-up disco.

Mill Road

If you’re looking to maximise your travel to candy ratio, a good place to start is Mill Road. The main road runs through the heart of Cambridge and has plenty of side streets and coul-de-sacs to plunder. With so many doors to knock on and sweets to be collected, you won’t want to miss out on a trip down Mill Road.
