Cheap Cambridge Hotels
Mini guide to Cambridge
Cambridge's main attraction is its world-renowned university and the magnificent
architecture of its colleges, one of the most famous being Trinity College,
built by King Henry VIII. Many celebrated people have graduated from Cambridge,
including Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton, Stephen Hawking, and Salman Rushdie.
Several of its colleges are lined in a row with gardens backing on to the River
Cam. The grass-covered bank is consequently known as The Backs, and it's a picturesque
place to walk along, especially in the spring when the bank is carpeted with
daffodils. You can also take a punt (a flat-bottomed boat) along the river and
relax among one of the great historic seats of learning in the world. The colleges
are open for visitors to walk around and admire the glorious architecture.
The busy town centre caters to the large student population, and not only is
it filled with students riding their bicycles but there you will also find many
of Cambridge's trendy cafés, fine restaurants, excellent pubs and bars,
and quality shops. Historic buildings are numerous, and a wonderful open green
beside the river Cam. The city also finds itself at the forefront of scientific
research and development, thanks to the many medical laboratories and engineering
design firms located here.
Many exciting daytrips can be made from Cambridge. The town of St. Ives is
well-known for its historic and picturesque riverside quay, while nearby Newmarket,
which is famous for horseracing, houses the National Horseracing Museum. Alternatively,
to the south of Cambridge in Duxford is the world famous Duxford Imperial War
Museum. Close by, the town of Ely is renowned for its cathedral, the Cathedral
of the Holy and Undivided Trinity, which was built in 1083. Meanwhile, 40 miles
from Cambridge is the town of Peterborough, which is recognized for the Flag
Fen, a remarkable Bronze Age settlement, one of the oldest in Britain.
