Cambridge dating: Finding love in the ancient city of spires

Integral to the UK’s academic and cultural heritage, Cambridge is a tranquil university town. But if you want to prevent your love life from falling asleep you need to look in the right place. EliteSingles combines a unique personality test with your personal search criteria to deliver matches with real long term potential.

Single life in Cambridge

Cambridge has one of the UK’s highest proportions of people in professional jobs: 32.6% compared to the national average of 23.5%. In addition to this, 41.2% of the population have a high level qualification (degree, Masters or PhD). Compare this to the rest of the country (19.7%) and you can see that there are some seriously sophisticated singles in Cambridge just waiting to be snapped up.

But busy lives and a lack of opportunity mean that many inhabitants find the chances of meeting someone suitable on the off-chance to be slim. Since getting to know someone properly on a night out is often impractical, opportunities for meeting ideal candidates often pass us by. Given the variety of singles in Cambridge, finding exactly what you look for in a partner can prove challenging.

Why use EliteSingles to find a partner in Cambridge?

EliteSingles is the place to meet the people you may currently struggle to in Cambridge. With the many of the city’s educated and professional singles commuting home from London and having limited time to date, connecting online is often more practical. We use a smart profiling system to help narrow your search to those most compatible, taking note of both your personality traits and search preferences.

Cambridge dating: what to do?

The ancient university city of Cambridge is spoilt for options to take a date. Whether meandering though the university grounds, dining at fine restaurants or engaging in outdoor activities, Cambridge offers something for everyone.

Whatever you choose to do on your first date in Cambridge, with EliteSingles you can be confident that it will be with someone with long-term potential.


Dining out

With surroundings so attractive your date will be impressed before they even start eating, the riverside Midsummer House is a top-notch date option. Oh yes, the foods not half bad either. Chef Daniel has bought two Michelin stars to Midsummer House, and as such it is one of the finest dining experiences Britain has to offer. He expertly pairs ingredients, creating plates that are not only beautiful to look at, but have clearly been crafted with real technical skill and know-how. Typical combinations would include roast quail paired with shallot puree and grapes, or Wagyu beef with spinach.

Nightlife in Cambridge

The Eagle is arguably Cambridge’s most famous pub, and has unarguably gotten some of our most illustrious academics roaringly drunk, including Nobel-prize winning scientists Crick and Watson, who discussed DNA over a table there. Soak up the atmosphere of heightened intelligence for a supercharged conversation with your date. Alternatively, are you a self-confessed nerd? Do you dream of collecting coins? Do you come over all misty-eyed at the recollection of blasting pixellated blobs into smaller pixellated blobs? Do you think your date might feel the same way? If so, treat yourselves to a night of retro gaming-themed nostalgia at PsychoCandy, a quirky nightclub that blasts out club remixes of Zelda (with added techno) alongside Mario/Sonic mash-ups.

Arts and culture

The various colleges that make up Cambridge’s word-famous university are a glorious way to spend an afternoon stroll. Henry James once wrote of Trinity Hall 'If I were called upon to mention the prettiest corner of the world, I should draw a thoughtful sigh and point the way to the gardens of Trinity Hall'. The Fitzwilliam Museum is a top draw for culture buffs, with a splendid neo-classical collection. Why not take a punt on a riverboat trip? The Riverboat Georgina offers tailor-made tours with the option of a lunch or cream tea onboard. Land ahoy!
