Tristan Welch, head chef, Parker’s Tavern
Why it should be on your radar: From punting along Cambridge's River Cam, to cycling through its winding cobblestoned streets - or enjoying a pub crawl around its old-school boozers - this university city makes a superb long-weekend getaway for you and your gang. Beauty aside, it's also got a pretty tasty food scene. One of the city's best-loved chefs, Tristan Welch, tells us where to go for a marvellous munch.
Best restaurant: "Restaurant 22 gets my vote. Reserve a table for 8pm to enjoy its short tasting menu, where olives meet seaweed and winter truffles by the kilo."
Best food store: "Culinaris is the sort of place you enter to grab one thing and come out with bags brimming. My basket? After stocking up on an enormous amount of French, British and Italian cheeses, I reach for a crusty baguette, pickles, hand-churned Italian butter, wild mushrooms and flat peaches."
