We are the Cambridge BID. Here to help you make the most of your time in Cambridge.

Our historic city centre radiates beauty on every corner with a variety of stunning architecture and University buildings. Whether you are looking for a unique shopping experience, a fantastic place to eat or drink or a fun day out filled with activities – Cambridge is the place to do it.

Cambridge BID represents a collection of 1,100 shops, bars, cafés, attractions, entertainment and services in the City Centre and we strive to ensure that visitors, locals and businesses enjoy a vibrant, safe and clean environment.

You may spot our bowler hat wearing City Ambassadors during your visit to Cambridge. They are our walking, talking information centres and they are ready to offer a warm welcome and assistance to any users of the City. If you see them whilst you’re out and about, please feel free to stop and ask any questions and they will be happy to help.

Throughout the year we also organise events such as Independents’ Week, Loving Summer, the Christmas lights and “Big Switch On” and a whole lot more! Find out about our events by signing up to our newsletter by clicking the button in the top right hand corner!

There is so much to do in Cambridge and our new Cambridge BID website will help you find what you’re looking for. Whether you’re seeking family fun, things to do, retail therapy, places to eat and drink, to take in the culture or if you want to find that specific shop that you love – this site is the best place to start.
