Even if you’re the most energetic, enthusiastic teacher in the world, sometimes it’s nice to leave the classroom and take your students out into the world.

Excursions in Cambridge

Cambridge is such a beautiful city to live in and as it is geared towards tourists, there are numerous opportunities for excursions for you and your students.


For Beginner students, a trip to the market to find out prices and talk to the stall owners is always fun. This can help the students practise numbers and figures, as well as practise language of negotiation or asking for advice or information. In order to provide structure to the lesson, you could incorporate a quiz on traditional dishes which would require the students to speak to the locals to find out the answers. The stall owners at the market are very friendly and quite accustomed to dealing with foreign students.


More serious students might enjoy a guided tour of one of the university colleges. Letting your students interact with other English-speaking people allows them to become accustomed to different accents and to become confident enough to ask questions or join in discussions with native speakers. A guided tour is a safe space for students to formulate questions and practise techniques for ensuring comprehension.


Cambridge is a city steeped in history so a lesson on historical places or stories is always a good idea. While going for a drink at the local pub might not be the best idea for a lesson, you can take a tour of the pubs which have stories behind them, like The Eagle where Crick and Watson supposedly first came up with the structure of the DNA molecule on a serviette. King’s College Chapel is another sight worth seeing, or you could visit Great St Mary’s Church and walk up the tower for a breathtaking view of the city.


Cambridge is such a beautiful city to live in and as it is geared towards tourists, there are numerous opportunities for excursions for you and your students. The best thing is, because the city centre is so small, all the attractions and places of interest are within walking distance of each other and probably your classroom.
