When you are staying in Cambridgeshire a visit to Cambridge is a must! Explore the famous colleges with their immaculate courtyards & unique bridges over the River Cam. King's College is noted for its stunning setting on the River Cam, and the beautiful chapel with its fan-vaulted ceiling. There are many great places in Cambridge to explore on foot and visitors are able to enjoy the many City & College tours. For those that enjoy shopping the new Grand Arcade shopping centre has a vast selection of shops to look around including John Lewis.
Punting trips on the River Cam are popular all year round to enjoy the gardens of ‘The Backs’ and the peaceful watermeadows which stretch out towards Granchester. In the City you can also visit some of the many museums including Fitzwilliam Museum with its large internationally-renowned collection of antiquities and fine arts.
You can discover fossils at the Sedgewick Museum of Earth Sciences. A short walk from the hustle & bustle of this fine city you can loose yourself in the University Botanical Gardens, a 40 acre oasis of beautifully landscaped gardens and greenhouses, a year round visitor attraction.
Just south of Cambridge is the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, one of the world’s most spectacular aviation heritage sites with around 200 aircraft on display. A great day out for all the family!
