A circular trail around the university city of Cambridge. You’ll have chance to enjoy many of the famous parks and open spaces including Jesus Green and Parker’s Piece, see the beautiful architecture of many of the famous university colleges and also see the range of bridges that cross over the River Cam throughout the city. The walk is almost entirely flat, with just one steady hill at the start. There are no stiles or gates and only a few steps. The walk follows well made tarmac paths making it suitable for pushchairs. There are public toilets available on Jesus Green, Midsummer Common (on Victoria Avenue) and Parker’s Piece. Approximate time 2 hours (plus extra time if you wish to visit any museums/attractions).

Cambridge is a charming town full of things to see. It’s so nice that highlights have been written in to the map of the app. Some portions of the walk are a bit dull but in general it will give you a thorough overview of the town and some scenery of the many colleges.

It's a shame the walk doesn't advise a walk up the castle mound opposite Shire Hall which gives great views across the city.
