Cambridge Travel Guide: 814 reviews and 1,719 photos

Cambridge is probably best known for its University (actually it has two, but only one is picturesque). It's a great place to go for a day or two, with lots of old buildings, green spaces and a compact, easily walkable centre.

If you want to stay longer, and you can afford to hire a car, then it also makes a great base for exploring the east of England.

If you want to search for Cambridge on the Web, make sure you use a UK-oriented search engine such as Google UK. Otherwise you'll get lots of information on Cambridge, Mass., US of A, which can be very confusing if it's not what you want. There are also several Cambridge online web guides, one of the best is here. If you're a big Cambridge fan, you could always read the local newspaper which includes a tourist guide. There's also a Cambridge City Council website.

The Cambridge University website is at www.cam.ac.uk - the other University in Cambridge is called Anglia Polytechnic University and it's website is at www.anglia.ac.uk. Also, if you're looking for somewhere to stay, the City Council maintains a useful list of hotels/bed and breakfast accomodation here.

You can find a webcam showing the Cambridge skyline at the BBC Cambridgeshire website.

At the moment I live outside the city limits, but I work there and have fun there, so it's still my hometown!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A compact city with lots of green space.
  • Cons:The builders have moved into the city centre for the next couple of years :-(
  • In a nutshell:A great place to live!

    Nice Cambridge river view. C was my second city to visit after London. I came to C in 1982 for a conference. I don't recall much except it was a beautiful campus. Wish to visit sometime again. Have a good day.

    Hi Jeremy, love the pics on your Cambridge page, great place, every time I visit I wish I lived there (except when it's blowing a gale from the Urals!)

    I must say it is an honor to have my humble Cambridge page reviewed by a real live local Cambridgeshire resident. Many thanks!

    Hi Jeremy. Have been to Oxford but not to Cambridge and your town looks just as pretty.

    A lot of very useful, first-hand info and great links to very valuable websites. These pubs, bookstores and surely the King's college seem very attractive to me. Wow, add punting :-). I do hope to visit all of them :-)
