From exploring a nuclear bunker to feasting at a pop-up vegan cafe, there’s something for everyone at the Castle Hill Open Day on 13 July. It’s a chance to explore one of the oldest and most vibrant corners of the city, as venues across the area open for free, and host special activities.
Visitors can enjoy a tour of the New Hall Art Collection, join in with walking tours, select herbs and make tea in the Murray Edwards Garden, get creative at an art workshop at Kettle’s Yard and learn about history at Histon Road Cemetery.
You can also get the best view of Cambridge from Castle Mound, plus tuck into delicious eats at the pop-up food stations, or bring along a picnic if you prefer.
Families can also enjoy the Museum of Mysteries trail at The Museum of Cambridge, and make magnets and discover secret symbols in and around St Peter’s Church. The event runs 12pm to 5pm and is free to attend.
