You have many reasons to visit this extraordinary university town. Cambridge has a unique beauty and will amaze you with its history, architecture, and natural beauty.
When visiting Cambridge you can’t miss the colleges and it’s gardens, the riverside, all the green meadows surrounding the city and the Backs (gardens and parks line up beside the river behind the colleges). Walking and cycling are the best ways to visit the city.
The town is full of cyclists, students and tourists, but still has a nice vibe and it’s far away from being a big chaotic city.
The Colleges are truly amazing even if you only contemplate them from the outside.
Before your arrival, you should check on the internet if the King’s College Chapel or the Trinity College are hosting a concert during your visit. Because is an excellent way to visit this two emblematic places for free, with a bonus of listening to some great music.
The museums are free in Cambridge, if you have time you should visit them all, if not I recommend the fabulous Fitzwilliam Museum, the Kettle’s Yard and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
If you are a fan of Sir Isaac Newton, stop at Trinity College to see the famed apple tree where it was said to be the inspiration for his theory of gravity after being bopped on the head by one of the fallen fruits.
If the weather invites for a picnic the Botanic Gardens are a must or a punting session through the river Cam.
It is always something happening in Cambridge, so make sure you do your research and don’t miss what this city has to offer.
Hope you can visit this breathtaking city and be prepared to fall a little in love with this university town.
Cambridge is very accessible by bus or train from London.
