Bed and Breakfasts in Cambridge

The world-famous university city of Cambridge lies along the River Cam, in the east of England. Here, among the honey-coloured colleges and towering chapels, book-laden students cycle to and from lectures or stretch out on the leafy greens, locking minds in heated debates. Fact: Cambridge lays claim to the highest concentration of historic buildings in the country. Though it's true that most visitors come to see the university, like nearby Oxford, there's more to the town than the academic institutions. Fascinating museums, independent boutiques and some fine places to dine among the cobbled streets of the city await near your Cambridge bed and breakfast.

Victorian terraced homes and chic crash pads make up the B&Bs, Cambridge

Though you'll find some hotels, the bed and breakfasts have long been the accommodation of choice in Cambridge and whether you're coming to see one of the students at the university or taking a historic break, they are just the ticket. Staying in one of the small Cambridge bed and breakfasts has lots of advantages – proximity to the university and city centre, a personal touch you just don't find in larger hotels and owners who know the city like the back of their hand, offering recommendations of things to do and places to eat. The properties here are varied. Some are traditional old B&Bs housed in terraced Victorian homes, with just a handful of rooms. Others are chic pads whose trendy decor and opulent furnishings offer a pinch of luxury to your getaway. If staying in cities isn't your thing, you could always nab a rental car and try one of the nearby farmhouse B&Bs in the rolling countryside outside Cambridge. Picking the right place for you is easy with Expedia's exhaustive list of Cambridge B&Bs and you'll never be far away from the city's things to do.

Guestrooms often come equipped with all the conveniences you could find in a hotel, like flat-screen TVs, tea-making facilities and complimentary WiFi. If you pick right, you could nab a spot with free parking and a private ensuite bathroom. After a good night's rest, you can wake to the smell of grilled bacon and coffee before heading downstairs for a full English breakfast, though there are always veggie options, should you prefer. On a whistle-stop tour of England? Why not try the attractions and restaurants in London next?

It's not just about the honey-coloured colleges near your B&B, Cambridge

Once a hearty breakfast has set you up for the day ahead, a good place to start exploring is the grounds of the university. One of the world's most famous and respected academic institutions shouldn't be missed. Though you can wander some of the grounds by yourself, to truly get to grips with its history, consider joining one of the guided walking tours. For more history, you could admire the interior of Saint Peter's Church, which dates to the 12th century. The city is packed with museums, like the Fitzwilliam Museum, which houses a staggering number of works, ranging from musical manuscripts to Egyptian artefacts. Alternatively, you could make a beeline for the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, to see a world-class collection of artefacts from around the globe.

After all that cramming, it's time to kick back. If you dive into one of the delis, you could pick up everything you need for a picnic hamper and try the age-old British tradition of punting. If you're new to boating and you're finding yourself zig-zagging, you could always join one of the guided punting tours to float under the achingly beautiful Bridge of Sighs.
