Tourism bosses in Cambridge are to encourage Chinese tourists to visit insmaller groups.
Dozens of visitors from the country regularly gather for organised toursaround the university city's narrow streets, making some "impassable".
Emma Thornton, of Visit Cambridge and Beyond, said groups of 50 standing infront of landmarks such as King's College were a "problem".
The city council said it was also working to tackle coach congestion.
Councillor Rosy Moore said Cambridge was "a small city with narrow streets,so parked coaches and large groups of tourists can be frustrating for residentstrying to get about their daily lives".
Eve Balshaw, 23, who lives in the city, said large groups of tourists madeit "challenging" to get around safely.
If tour guides don't lead groups carefully, it can make both locals andvisitors feel like there isn't space for them, she said.
她说:"如果导游没有认真的组织好队伍,就会让当地人和游客都觉得没有空间."Jinzhao Li, the director of Cambridge China Centre, said Chinese touristsare drawn to the city thanks to a poem by former Cambridge University student XuZhimo.
Taking Leave of Cambridge Again, written in the 1920s, was a "verybeautiful romantic poem", she said.
Everyone in China has heard of this poem.
