University of Cambridge
The second oldest university in the English speaking world and half of the infamous ‘Oxbridge’. The university is made up of many buildings spread out across the whole city. It is worth, on a nice day going for a wander to appreciate the historical and contemporary building alike. Notable locations are Kings College, Queens College and St Johns College.
The main river that flows directly through Cambridge is the river Cam. Great thing about it, is that the scenery is worth it just being there - lovely for a stroll, a punt or boat ride. With many riverside restaurants, bars and cafes there is always refreshments available with a view!
Basically meaning ‘the backs’ of many of the historical college university buildings - where they back onto the river Cam. Picturesque, leafy and full of lush greenery - perfect for a summers wander or picnic. We would suggest a wicker basket full of savoury and sweet goodies - why not pack some Pimms and lemonade too!
With daily tours of varying length and prices there’s a boat trip for everyone. Experience a truly unique view of Cambridge, with a top tour guide filling you in on all the relevant history and interesting stories about the surroundings. It is even covered for those rainy days or impromptu showers.

Home to all things art, comedy, music, theatre and all in between. You’ll be sure to find something to suit you and your group. Cambridge Junction plays host to a weekly club night on Saturdays with guest DJ’s and entertainment until the early hours.
There’s everything from live music and traditional pubs to trendy bars and late night clubs. We recommend going down Regent Street and Downing Street for some serious dance-floor action. Market square offers at least three top clubs playing all the latest tunes and party classics.
