Cambridge ambassdors are speaking your language
Six City Ambassadors have been greeting thousands of international visitors in their own languages this summer, offering a warm welcome to our world-renowned city.
The Ambassadors, whose role is funded by Cambridge BID and delivered by Visit Cambridge, themselves represent four nationalities and speak no fewer than 13 languages between them.
Celebrating their sixth birthday this month, the Ambassadors play an important role in helping to manage the flow of visitors around Cambridge – welcoming 59,248 visitors over the last 12 months, answering queries and pointing them towards the Visitor Information Centre for details of local attractions and official tours.
Ambassadors can be identified by their distinctive bespoke purple blazers, striped ties, smart waistcoats and trilby hats.
“This coordinated visitor welcome is a subtle yet important part of managing the place that is Cambridge,” said Ian Sandison, CEO of Cambridge BID. “We want visitors to feel welcome. We can help to curate their visit for everyone’s benefit.”
