Even those who have never visited Cambridge are familiar with Fitzbillies, aka the best place in the city to snag a Chelsea bun. Founded in 1920 by brothers Ernest and Arthur Mason, the bakery was rescued from folding in 2011 by food writer and presenter Tim Hayward and partner Alison Wright. Having successfully rejuvenated the business, the pair have now opened a smaller, grab-and-go outpost in the north of the city. We still recommend swinging by the original Trumpington Street store, though, partly for its history, but largely so that you can enjoy an afternoon tea with your sweet treat. Not visiting anytime soon? No problem. You can get a box of the sticky buns delivered straight to your front door.
