Cambridge

With a great range of scenic and cultural attractions, you will find plenty to see and do in Cambridge.

This Cambridgeshire location is home to approximately 130,000 people.

It lies roughly 11 miles northeast of Royston and about 50 miles north of the national capital of London.

Spend a nice afternoon wandering around the University Botanic Gardens and the Cambridge University Botanic Garden if you would like to learn more about the flora of the region.

When the sun is shining, grab something for lunch and find a shady corner at one of the leafy urban parks, such as Jesus Green and Parker's Piece. You'll also find plenty of space to lie down in the grass at the Fellows Garden and Wandlebury Country Park.

With a heap of brochures and maps at the ready, Round Church Visitor Centre is an excellent place to discover what's happening in Cambridge.

Sheep's Green / Lammas Land and Milton Country Park are popular stops for nature lovers. Make your way over for a nice break from the distractions of the modern world.

For something on the educational side, spend an afternoon at some of the local cultural establishments. The best places are the Imperial War Museum Duxford, the Denny Abbey and Farmland Museum and the University Museum of Zoology.

If you feel like challenging yourself, make your way to the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences or the Scott Polar Research Institute. The range of science artifacts exhibited at these engaging museums will stimulate your mind for hours. For even more learning opportunities, you should stop at the Whipple Museum of the History of Science and the Polar Museum.

Our natural world is a magnificent and strange place. If you're crazy enough to disagree, some time spent at the Cambridge University Museum and Archaeology and Anthropology and the Museum of Classical Archaeology should be enough to convince you. The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology also boasts a terrific array of specimens.

Have a look at the program at the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Kettle's Yard and see if anything looks interesting. Who knows, you might even catch an exhibition opening!

Stroll the peaceful hallways and view the exhibits and artifacts on display at the Cambridge & County Folk Museum.

To find out more about the area's rich and fascinating past, plan to visit at least one of its many historic monuments and buildings. Start the local history tour at the Trinity College and the King's College. More tales from the days of old are waiting for you at the St. John's College and the Clare College.

Crossing the local waterways, Bridge of Sighs and Mathematical Bridge are two feats of civil engineering that have withstood the ravages of time.

You'll imagine you're a swordsman from medieval times when you look on in wonder at the imposing walls of Castle Hill.

The region's spiritual side is evidenced at Church of St Mary the Great and King's College Chapel. If you'd like to see more religious sites, have a walk about Little St Mary's Church and St Bene't's Church.

Once you've ticked off all the major points of interest in and around Cambridge, make time to explore a few of its lesser-known sights. Some good places to begin with are the Wren Library and the Pepys Library. If you can squeeze it in, also think about visiting the Wysing Arts Centre and The River Cam.
