The historic city of Cambridge, one of the most important and beautiful cities in the UK, is famous throughout the world for its universities and colleges, academic excellence, and exciting history and culture. Cambridge is compact, and easy to explore on foot or by bicycle. Or, of course, you can wander down to the River Cam and hire one of the city's famous punts.

You'll discover a network of medieval streets and passageways, college courts, gardens, bridges and churches. There seem to be theatres, galleries, craft markets, cafes and tiny second-hand bookshops around every corner.
