One of the best things about Cambridge is its size and its history. It’s compact, and easy to explore on foot or by bicycle. Or, of course, you can wander down to the river cam and hire one of the city’s famous punts. On a sunny day, it’s a glorious way to sightsee. You’ll discover a network of medieval streets and passageways, college courts, gardens, bridges and churches. If you look closely there are even theatres, galleries, craft markets, cafés and tiny second-hand bookshops around every corner. With so much to see and do it can be hard to pick out the highlights, but we think you might like: •Taking a walking tour of Cambridge (or hiring a bike and exploring on two wheels) •Punting on the River Cam •Exploring the extensive collections of the Fitzwilliam museum •Visiting the magnificent King’s College Chapel •Walking along open spaces such as the Botanic gardens, Midsummer common, Parker’s Piece or anywhere in the city’s vast historic centre.
