Pocket Guide: Cambridge Bridge of Sighs Hotels

Birmingham may have more canals than Venice, but Cambridge has its own Bridge of Sighs! Built in 1831 to provide a covered link between the quadrangles at St. John's College, it was named after the bridge in Venice to which is bears a passing resemblance. Given that the Bridge of Sighs in Venice was so named as it provided the route for prisoners on their way to their cells, the notion that the Cambridge Bridge of Sighs was named by students who would sigh on their way to take their exams offers a parallel explanation! If you're taking a break in Cambridge or staying in one of the wide range of hotels in Cambridgeshire, add the Bridge of Sighs to your itinerary.

Relax on the River Cam During Your Hotel Stay in Cambridgeshire

The Bridge of Sighs is best viewed from the River Cam. Wherever you're staying in Cambridge, you'll find a number of boat tours, including tours by traditional punt led by university students who can give you all the history you need and point out local places of interest. A relaxing way to see the sights, the Bridge of Sighs is included in almost all tours, but check first if it's on your list of priorities. Or if you're feeling confident you can take control of a punt yourself with hourly and half day rentals available at punting stations along the river, and canoes and kayaks are also available to hire. If gentle relaxation is high on your list of agenda during your stay in Cambridgeshire you'll also find a wide choice of hotels offering extra leisure facilities, like indoor swimming pools and spa treatments.

Immerse Yourself in History When You Book Your Hotel Stay in Cambridgeshire

The Bridge of Sighs is not the only example of stunning architecture and heritage in the city of Cambridge. Within punting distance you'll find the famous wooden Mathematical Bridge at Queens College, the oldest bridge in Cambridge at Clare College, or you can take a walk to wonder at the Gothic masterpiece of the grand chapel at King's College.
