Things to Do in Cambridge

Things to Do in Cambridge, Cambridge, England (B)

Cambridge is a rather small city and it has many beautiful colleges. If you are arriving from London at the train station in Cambridge, it’s useful to check the ticket for the trip in advance because sometimes there is a train directly to Cambridge which only needs around one hour, so better check the train schedule in advance.

Cambridge is a good place if you like wandering around and exploring the city by yourself. I was surprised how many Pubs there are. I also recommend to walk around the city center and to visit the market square. The market square has many interesting stalls where you can buy food like e.g. sweets, bread or things worth trying – besides that there are also people selling random things like vinyls and tourist souvenirs.

Punting is usually part of a classical day in Cambridge. You will hear a lot of interesting things during the 30 -45 min punt on the river Cam about the Colleges and of course you will the huge gardens and old and impressive buildings. I love Kings College – the guide said during the tour that alumni from Kings College can get married in the big chapel. If I just knew that earlier…. If you are brave enough you can dare to rent your own punting boat and do it on your own. BUT if you don’t have any experience and practice in punting – leave it. Seriously. I’ve seen some real shit…. I mean why do people do such things to themselves? Well anyway it’s up to you if you want to rent your own boat or participate in a tour with a guide. ......
