City Life for Families

Moving to a new city can be daunting, particularly if you’re bringing your family. Fortunately, Cambridge is a safe, friendly city with great schools and plenty to do; from free days out at the museums, parks and playgrounds, to special treats like Shepreth Wildlife Park.

Many of Cambridge’s venues also hold great events specifically for children – like the annual February half-term ‘Twilight at the Museums’, or family-friendly Christmas Pantomimes at the ADC.
