Hotels in Cambridge
Surrounded by rolling hills, pleasant fields and lazy waterways, Cambridge is the perfect example of a city nestled in traditional English countryside. Iconic buildings throughout the city, taking part in a walking tour or punting along the river, you'll soon be in a spot where one of history's great scientists or poets has left their mark. If your Cambridge hotel is by the River Cam, lying back on a punt while The Bridge of Sighs approaches can be a real inspirational sight. For those wanting to stay on dry land, head to Jesus Green and unwind in a book and the beautiful green surroundings.
Cambridge's history can be seen through the many different styles of building, from modern hotels in Cambridge built in the last few years, to St Benets Church, the oldest building in the city and the iconic King's College Chapel, a great example of late Gothic Architecture. One of our favourite sights to see is The Round Church, thought to be from the 12th century, or walking through the Kings College Gateway, built in 1824.
Marvellous Museums and Great Galleries
Being a renowned university city, there is a large range of museums and galleries in Cambridge. The Whipple Museum of the history of Science, is great for budding brainiacs, full of instruments from the Middle-Ages to the present. For exploration enthusiasts, head to The Polar Museum, covering the Antarctic, the heroic adventurers discovering new lands and the native people found. If you're more of an art lover, Kettle's Yard, the former home of early Tate Gallery curator Jim Ede, houses plenty of exhibits from the early 20th century.
Cambridge has a strong presence in the theatrical world, giving birth to a host of stars such as Stephen Fry, Emma Thompson and John Cleese. One of our favourite venues is the Cambridge Arts Theatre, opened in 1936 it showcases a mix of opera, pantomime, dance and drama. Mumford Theatre is great if you want an intimate show, with performances by the local community and theatre students.
When in Cambridge, check the dates for many festivals that are held.
