City breaks & Short breaks in Cambridge
Cambridge is home to one of England’s oldest universities and is a top cultural and heritage destination. Visitors to the city for a weekend break away will find traditional hotels offering a slice of English hospitality and a range of bed and breakfast and hostel rooms available. The university and its 31 college buildings dominate the city centre with cobbled streets and courtyards, chapels, gardens and bridges. The famous Corpus Christi College is set at the heart of the city and the University Library is home to many exciting exhibitions. The best way to see the city is on a walking or punt tour. Punts are long wooden boats, a little like gondolas, which were traditionally used to navigate the city’s river. A tour will take you along the “Backs” of the colleges to sights such as King's College Chapel, The Wren Library at Trinity College and the Bridge of Sighs. A picnic along the Backs is a traditional way to spend a summer’s afternoon in the city of Cambridge. For plant lovers, the University Botanical Garden has a wide array of vegetation on show and has been open to the public since 1846!
