Sightseeing in Cambridge

Cambridge is one of the two famous University cities (the other one is Oxford) in England located north of London in the region East Anglia. Despite its similarity to Oxford there is a distinct different feel to it in which Oxford tends to feel more like a city whereas Cambridge feels more like a large town. The University has many colleges with some of the more famous ones being King's college, Queens college, St. John's college and Trinity college. The majority of them have a similar outlay in which you enter trough and architecturally impressive gate and then arrive at a courtyard, often with grass in the middle and are surrounded by old buildings.

Many of these colleges can be visited freely and they are what makes Cambridge worth visiting. Walking around these old courtyards and seeing these university buildings lets you experience some of England's best historical architecture and the associate history. Many of these are located next to each other in the city center. Besides the colleges there are several churches worthwhile seeing such as Great St. Mary's, St. Benet's, All Saints and St. Andrew's church. None the less, there are other buildings of interest such as the corn exchange and the Senate house. Cambridge is a friendly place to walk around with low traffic and you can walk not only on the main streets, but also along the back of many of the colleges which provide you with nice views of Cambridge and have the feeling of a peaceful park.

Being a student town Cambridge is one of the few places in England where cycling is relatively safe en encouraged by local councils. There is also the river Cam where you can go punting. In the summer it is a very popular thing to do. Cambridge is only 1 hour away from London (fastest train) so it can be easily visited as a day trip.
