On my second weekend here in London, my friends and I decided to take a train and go to Cambridge.
Our ticket was £10.90 and could be used at any time for the day we bought and the train trip lasted about 40 minutes. The first thing that comes to our minds when we think about Cambridge is a university. But what many people don’t know is that there are numerous campus throughout the city, not just one.
With an architecture that resembles castles, the buildings of the universities are the main attraction of the beautiful city. In some campus the admission is free, but in others you have to pay. My advice is to visit the ones that are free and choose one to pay to enter. Even though all are incredibly beautiful, they look similar. We paid £3.50 to get into one, but the price varies.
The town is small, so it’s possible to know everything by walking, but a tour that I super recommend is to canoe down the river. The Cam River crosses the city and is on its banks that most of the campus are.
For the trip along the river, you can rent your own canoe for £25.00. I recommend this option if you are willing to row. As my friends and I didn’t know if it would be difficult, we decided to take the common tour on a boat with other tourists and a guide. It was £12.00 per person. Near the river, the price per person range from £20.00 to £25.00. But if you are closer to the centre of the town, you can find cheaper prices, as we did.
Through the centre of the city, you can also find several souvenir shops and pubs.
A beautiful place with a nice atmosphere, Cambridge has become my favourite place in England. I finish the post with a few more pictures of the place. (I want to go back).
