Cambridge isn't really known as a late night city. Around Sidney Street/Market Street is the main area of the city for bars and clubs but St Andrew's Street is busy too. There's also a wide selection of restaurants, in popular areas like Bridge Street and Regent Street in the city centre or travel up to Chesterton for some of the city's best. Finally, why not take in a show at the Arts Theatre or see a concert at the Corn Exchange.
