Where to stay in Cambridge

The English city of Cambridge is located on the River Cam and is home to the prestigious University of Cambridge, which dates back to 1209.

While visitors to the city are attracted by the history and reputation of the University, Cambridge has much more to offer than its world-famous seat of learning. There are several beautiful museums and art galleries, while the quaint passageways set around the market place are home to high street brands as well as cosy independent stores.

Cambridge also boasts a superb choice of hotel accommodation to meet every need whether it is for business, a romantic break, sightseeing or a family holiday. As well as luxury hotels with penthouse suites and city views, the city offers country house-style hotels, pubs with accommodation and boutique hotels and spas.

Cambridge has a number of public transport options, including hop-on/hop-off buses, normal bus services, cycling, car rental and taxis, while no trip to the city would be complete without hiring a punt for a leisurely river trip.

I can not recommend Cambridge enough! It is one of my favorite places in England, by far. The charm and history that the city carries with it is unmatched. I loved walking through the different canals and alleyways. You can also pop into the university if it’s not during exams and take a gondola ride!

Everything you want in an old English town. Easy to explore on foot and enough to keep you occupied for a few hours or a few days.

Hidden in the dancing shadow, Ta Prohm must be on top of this list of must-see spots in at Angkor, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. It is like a pure fantasy about a place still undiscovered.

Cambridge is a great place for a day trip from London. It's just a short train ride away! There are more than enough beautiful colleges to visit. Sometimes you have to pay the entrance fee but it's less than 10 pounds. Enjoy walking around the River Cam, visit a few historic pubs, and check out the Cambridge Press Bookstore!
