Cambridge Dating: Finding Love in the Ancient City of Spires

Cambridge is one of the UK's most gorgeous University towns with a storied past and a bright future.

Cambridge Dating - The Reality 

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 Cambridge singles just waiting to be snapped up.

But, juggling a busy work-life balance paired with a lack of opportunity can mean many inhabitants find the chances of meeting someone suitable on the fly pretty 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 to Cambridge dating, finding exactly what you're looking for in a partner can prove challenging.

Why Use EliteSingles to Meet Cambridge Singles?

EliteSingles is the place to meet the people you may currently struggle to on the Cambridge dating scene.

Cambridge Dating: Top First Date Tips 

The ancient university city of Cambridge is spoilt for options to take a date. Whether meandering through 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.

Because we pride ourselves on offering our members access to a truly local dating site, we endeavour to offer you the very best Cambridge dating advice out there. Check out the tips below to find out where you should head for a first date to remember!

Tips:

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? 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 makeup 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!
