Cambridge Through The Eyes Of A Foodie

Imagine strolling through Cambridge passed colleges which look like they are made out of sugar in the bright sunlight, wandering through quaint passages set around the historic Market Place, getting your culture kick at interesting museums and art galleries or spreading out your picnic in one of the many parks or commons, but wouldn’t it be nice to see Cambridge in a different light? We’ll take you to amazing foodie places and area’s very few tourists get to see and sometimes even unknown to locals.

Our walking food tours take you off the beaten path and we’ll show you Cambridge through the eyes of a foodie and it will be a day you won’t soon forget!

Rated by Tripadvisor as one of the top attractions to do in Cambridge and as one of the top 20 food tours in the world!



If you’re an experienced foodie traveller you’ll always be on the look-out for something new and different; the latest food, fine local produce and the hot place to eat in town. Quite often these local gems are off the beaten track, tucked away in an alleyway or in areas where very few tourists are to be seen. Our  4-hour lunch tour is a perfect break from your historic wanders or shopping spree whilst visiting Cambridge.



Does this sound like your piece of cake? Then come and join us for the best Lunch in Cambridge, where we’ll promise not only to serve cake!  A colourful array of local, British and Cambridge food will come across your path for you to sample (including a cake of course). This combined with interesting stories about food, the food scene and the colleges, you will be in for a real treat or as Delicious Magazine UK called it ‘a city peppered with international cuisine’.

Hungry for more? I am afraid I have to disappoint you here as it will be ‘a Tasting tour of Cambridge’ or as Master Chefs like to refer to ‘ a Surprise tasting tour’. The food on the tour is just as seasonal as the weather as Cambridge tastes different every season. In winter we might curl up around a roaring fire and in the summertime, we spread out the blanket and enjoy the sun.



In January we recharge our batteries so we only run tours on Saturday. We start on 28 January again with the full programme of tours.

Dairy-free diets – This tour is suitable for dairy-free diets. We try our best to accommodate you, but due to the nature of the food, it might not always be possible.

Gluten-free – The Cambridge food scene is changing at a rapid pace and we’re very pleased, that the gluten free offering is increasing too. Unfortunately, due to the nature of some of the tours, we’re not always able to offer an alternative. Please contact us for more information. 

Other diets – We do try to cater for dietary requirements; however, this is not always possible due to the nature of some of the smaller independent retailers we use and alternatives may not be available.
