Cambridge Birthday Party Guide
When we think of Cambridge, we think of bicycles, universities and the royals. A unique city which offers beautiful architecture and history. You'll find lots of birthday activities in Cambridge city centre and also off the beaten track.
When in Town
During the day, you'll find the city filled with students rushing to lectures. There's tourists exploring the colleges and sampling the delights from the cafes along the narrow cobbled streets. You'll find us in the hustle and bustle of the market place hunting through the treasure trove of unique gifts.
Gather your friends and family for a spot of punting along the river Cam, an activity so quintessentially Cambridge, you'll regret it if you don't. On sunny days, take a picnic and a blanket to Christ Pieces park as this little green get's busy with those wanting to catch a few rays (and a few ZZZs!).
Our Top Tip
Use the large Park and Ride car parks on the outskirts of the city. You'll easily be able to hop on a bus into Cambridge from there and it's one of the cheapest and easiest places to park.
Cambridge is the city of culture and equally nightlife due to the high number of students. You'll find plenty of options to celebrate your birthday, from perusing the colleges on the mobile adventures or learning how to make delicious cocktails. Head out of the city and into the wild for some clay pigeon shooting or race your friends on the off road karting track.
In the heart of Cambridge is the Grand Arcade housing high street names such as Warehouse and Wallis with quality names such as John Lewis, L K Bennett, All Saints and The White Company. For groups who love a riddle, visit the Escape Rooms, solve the clues before the time runs out! You're up against the clock, will you be able to free yourselves?
When we're celebrating birthdays in Cambridge, you'll find us touring the pubs of the city, perhaps staying a little longer at the riverside pubs. On summer evenings take a punt along the river, with some bubbly before heading over to the centre of town to sink your teeth into a juicy burger or a heavenly Italian.
A night out in Cambridge tends to be pretty wild as many places are open late, there's high chance you'll end up royally sloshed. The locals love Kuda, reserve a booth in this contemporary bar with the Nightclub VIP package for the ultimate VIP treatment, the whole night. Skip the queues, a round of drinks when you arrive and your own area. All of your birthday wishes in one shot!
A busy day of activities or a crazy night out calls for a comfy place to rest your head. We know exactly where all of the best places to recuperate on your Cambridge birthday weekend are. Our contacts include luxury stays in the city, budget hotels just outside and group friendly hotels in the coolest part of town.

Cambridge Birthday Reviews
What can I say, Freedom Ltd were absolutely brilliant! They sorted everything out perfectly for our Treasure Hunt weekend in Cambridge, from the prizes to the hotel to the meal. They were so efficient, everything was in order long before the weekend itself, and they send helpful tips and reminders to help you make your weekend the absolute best.
I had a lot of queries and they were so quick to respond, within a couple of hours each time; one even stayed around at work til almost 10pm to help me sort out a disabled access room in the hotel. I have recommended them to everyone already and will 1000% be using them again!
The website is so easy to use, you can personalise your pack with pictures and slogans, and the treasure hunt itself was a lot of fun, very well mapped out with all the information you need and at a fraction of the cost I was anticipating when I started looking at options.
Thank you for a brilliant time!

Never used Freedom before but I will 100% be booking again! I have & will keep recommending the company! Cannot fault anything! I booked 16 places for quad biking & clay pigeon shooting aka Woodland Ranger! Great instructors! Would like to say thanks to John who taught us the clay pigeon shooting & eveyone smashed it! One of us didn't miss any targets including the practice shots and he's never shot a gun before! Cheers John! Most important thanks Freedom for a great birthday!

I booked a treasure hunt through Freedom for my birthday. We had a party of 10 and decided to have men versus women. We weren't exactly sure how it would work until we received our pack, but we all had a great day the sun shone and we discovered parts of Cambridge we wouldn't normally go. The quiz at the end was fun which we did in a pub and the winning team was presented with their medals. All in all everyone said they really enjoyed it and would do one again. The staff at Freedom were very friendly and helpful.

“Surprise 50th Birthday Celebration”
15 ladies attended a surprise 50th Birthday weekend in Cambridge. I was so impressed with how well organised each activity was and the whole booking arrangements were.
First we attended a cocktail making event. The host was fab and very entertaining. We then went on to dance our way through several 80s tracks with our very own dance lesson. The dance teacher was fantastic, very patient with us and the whole experience was brilliant.
Great menu at Ilguanas!
The accommodation was great at the Travel Lodge, many of us was fortunate to be given family rooms, clean and tidy and a great breakfast to end the weekend.
Thank you so much for making the whole weekend perfect and well organised.

Open top bus tour
Excellent helpful staff, great individual payment system, takes away the headache of collecting money from individuals. I organised a group of 19 friends from all over the country with ease to go on a open top bus tour of Cambridge.

Cocktail training so much fun! This was the 3rd time i have been cocktail training but a first in Cambridge. the host was fantastic considering she had 8 over excited ladies to deal with!! we had so much fun from watching how to make a cocktail, then going behind the bar to making a cocktail yourself! we then had some shots which the host took a fantastic picture for us. then the host set up shot glasses on top of other glasses that i had to knock into which was amazing...then the slowest person had to do the chilli shot, thank god it wasn't me!! but then the food came out....very disappointing as there was probably only enough food to feed 3 people - we asked where the rest of the food was so she went to ask and came back saying that was it!! over all i would still go back again but eat more food before i went....
Thank you Lisa for booking the birthday party in Cambridge with Freedom.
The £29 package you booked comes with food platters or this can be swopped for another drink. I am sorry you thought this would be a full meal for each person. Perhaps next time you can chose to upgrade to the £39 package which includes a 2 course meal.
Thank you again for your constructive feedback.

Staff were friendly and helpful with their suggestions. We had to change the date yet this was easily changed as booked with plenty of notice. We needed a minimum number for our nude art class, yet this extra cost was spread amongst our group. The hotel was very good, and we all enjoyed the spa and pamper treatments. Lunch which was not included was reasonably priced at venue. Evening meal and breakfast was well catered and good to have large table for our party of 11. Taxis into town were easily booked from hotel at special rate. There was a wedding on at venue, which meant lunchtime service was slow 1 member of our party had to wait 45 minutes for a panini. Hotel staff apologised but it would have been nice to have had a refund for such a long wait time. Overall fantastic fun had by all.

I thought I would just drop you a line to let you know what a fantastic time we had at the weekend. Everything went like clockwork. I have been very impressed with your company's service and wanted to thank you all for your efforts.
Many people have expressed any interest in your company and I think so far I have given your website details to about seven people, including the mini bus driver we had booked for the day who really got into the spirit of the event.
