Our museums and most sports facilities are open, with restrictions, following the change in Government guidance on 19 July 2021. Buildings and facilities may be operating online booking to manage visitor numbers, so may not be open on a drop-in basis. Please be aware that capacities remain reduced.
Advance booking is still essential for our museums, except the Botanic Garden, where it remains available on an optional basis. Please see the museums' website for information about how to book.
Cambridge University Libraries are providing a blend of online and zero-contact services.
