Christmas Food Walking Tours in Cambridge

Christmas is the time to be merry and for a foodie to pull out all the plugs. Sometimes months of preparation and planning goes into this. With so many new places opening up in Cambridge, it might be a challenge to find the right places to shop and if you want an easy Christmas, where to dine out? We at the Cambridge Food Tour are mad about food and track down every new place, which opens in Cambridge. We are one of the first ones to check them out, review them and if they’re good then we include them on our Food Walking Tours so we can share these amazing foodie places with you. 

One of the best preparations for a foodie Christmas is, without doubt, to join us on one of our Food Walking Tours. Accompanied by a local foodie guide of the Cambridge Food Tour, you’ll explore parts of Cambridge many visitors never get to see. Even sometimes unknown to locals. Meet the shopkeepers or market traders, sample delicious food and enjoy time out with fellow foodies.
