Cambridge Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 56 photos


Strolling around Cambridge is more than a visit, it's an experience. Forget about the hussle and bustle of cities and malls, shopping in Cambridge is so enjoyable you want to stay forever. This quaint English style town is simply a breath of fresh air. Neatly presented gardens and Town Hall, this is one town with immense pride.
Cambridge is a horse town, a rowing town, a farming town, even a commuter town with people wanting to live in a rural setting but work in nearby Hamilton city.
It's common to see people in riding boots, gumboots, Swanndri's, or very smart casual attire. As you wander down the street, you see locals, and know you are amongst heartland New Zealand.

Every town needs an Information Office.

I stopped to take this photo to depict the older architecture, the funny little car and of course, the Information Office. This is in fact the back of the town hall and it has been restored painstakingly and the info office is perfeclty placed next to the highway. A lot of travellers pass through Cambridge, and it has a lot to offer those wanting to stop.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Rowers, Cyclists and Horses.
  • Cons:Little bit hard to park in the street, but you don't have to go far.
  • In a nutshell:Town of Champions.

    Superloo! How many times did I wish the places I was visiting on a shoestring would have that! Then there would be no need to find a hotel room with a shower :D
