About Cambridge

Cambridge has an abundance of magnificent buildings, and these together with riverside walks, wonderful museums and quaint old streets, quickly draw the visitor under the spell of this historic and charming City.

The heart of this ancient City is dominated by the great University buildings. King's college is known for its chapel, a medieval masterpiece that was built long before the rest of the college. Of the other buildings, the oldest Peterhouse - the first college founded in 1284 belongs to Clare college, part of which was once occupied by a 12th-century Nunnery. Trinity college, established in 1546 by Henry V111 and now the largest college. Trinity has a spectacular Library, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, and Trinity's chapel contains memorials to famous past students including Isaac Newton and Lord Tennyson.

There are many interesting places to visit in this famous City, one being the American cemetary and chapel. The War Memorial Chapel, in stark contrast with Cambridge's historic buildings, is a striking example of modern architecture. Inside, is a 540-square foot map showing the Atlantic air and sea routes used by American forces during the second world war. Not surprisingly, this unique place is included in the tour itinery of our many American friends.

The City centre provides a host of interesting shops and restaurants, while in and around Cambridge you will find several hospitable public houses and inns, all offering tasty food in a relaxing and cosy atmosphere.

Other noted places to visit - Buckden Palace, Bourn Post-Mill and Trumpington.
