    Highly recommended this to anyone, not just Gin lovers. We learnt a lot about Gin, and had fun making our own, Max our host was brilliant.

    We went to even song. The service was excellent but the choral singing even better than that!

    A very nice chapel with excellent acoustics.

    I did not realise how great the American involvement was in WW2.
    A beautiful thought provoking a peaceful location - which gives great food for thought .
    The visitor centre was both informative and very moving to read the real life tragedies .
    I came away both reflective , moved and grateful for all the support of thousands of Americans who gaved their lives so that we could enjoy peace .
    We should never forget them .

    Used to live nearby. Visiting familyriends. If you're anywhere near Cambridge you have to visit the River Cam, take a punt (guided) and enjoy all the sights, food, shopping, etc. Depending on the time of year, some of the colleges are open to visitors. They were filming a movie when we went. Lots to do and see. Way to much to put in this short review. It is a wonderful town and most yanks (and others) enjoy themselves.

    Even in March this is a lovely place to visit. £7 each for adults, we could have stayed for hours.

    The glasshouses are amazing to visit with so many different areas of the world represented here.

    The gardens are well maintained. There are many different gardens represented such as a winter garden, perfumed garden, herb garden etc We saw many gardeners doing a spring clean when we were there on a Tuesday.

    We spent a great few hours here. The adults relived our childhoods seeing BBC, Acorn and Spectrum computers and the young really enjoyed the history of gaming. Friendly staff, really informative displays and fun. Well worth the visit.

    We were so happy to just pass by when a group of graduates arrived. The mere respect for tradition is stunning. Beautiful buildings, of course, as well!

    Absolutely loved our visit in March.

    We came to catch the LGBTQ+ tour, and were not disappointed. Our guide was lovely, knowledgeable and enthusiastic! The stories were a good mix of well known and a bit more uncommon, and served as a great introduction to the museum as well. We also got some further reading recommendations, and ended up getting one of them from the Museum Shop.

    After our tour, we spent another few hour exploring the whole of the galleries. It's great for anyone interested in zoology, with a great mix of taxidermy (mammals and birds) as well as skeletal material. The highlights leaflet is a great option if you've got limited time, making sure you see some of all materials. There also seem to be occasional temporary trails, making use of existing materials to tell new stories. During our visit, it was the evolution of spines. Both the highlights leaflet and the 'Spines' trail also came with a handy map!

    The volunteers in the Galleries were friendly and helpful when it came to questions.

    The café seems to be mostly targeted at students, and offered hot and cold drinks and a few down-to-earth dishes at fair prices. My student ID from an external university was accepted with no problem.

    There is a bus stop of the local park and ride service, just a few minutes walk from the museum entrance, and several other museums within walking distance as well.

    Great museum for anyone interested in the USAAF. Exhibits are nicely laid out and well presented. P-51 is a great attraction. Very friendly staff and a great cafe!

    I visited Kettle’s Yard in October on a rainy day. It was so nice to step out of the rain to enjoy art in a really unusual way. Kettle’s Yard does not feel like a traditional art gallery as it displays all different kinds of art throughout a home. It’s more of an experience. It’s really nice to take your time looking around, even sitting on the chairs provided, as the more you look – the more you see!
    Be careful to arrive on time as it is a timed ticket and you aren’t allowed in if you arrive early.
    The shop is worth a visit too – it has some lovely gifts in it.
