CAMBRIDGE: A University Town at its Best

Cambridge is probably best known for being the home of the prestigious and imposing Cambridge University, but the town itself offers so much more than just the University that is worth visiting.

A trip here is both enlightening and enchanting, as much of the city retains the historic charm of the university while also enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of students and museums at the city center, with beautiful green spaces and riverside walks for those who want to get away from the bustle of the city.

BEST NEIGHBOURHOODS OF CAMBRIDGE

Below are some of our favorite neighborhoods to stay in year round. However, if you’re lucky enough to visit during the summer holiday, we highly recommend reserving a room at Cambridge University in the student housing, it’s a novel treat not to be missed. However, book well ahead as availability goes very quickly!

Round Church Street

Round Church Street is the closest you can get to the center of town without planting yourself like a flag pole. Colorful and full of energy, this is the place to go if you’re looking for a convenient bed and breakfast or vacation rental home that is just a short walk away from the town center. With tons of restaurants at hand, the only downside is that parking is extremely limited. So if you’re driving into Cambridge, keep that in mind.

Gwydir Street

Gwydir street is known as being loud and colorful, and has its own street festival and parade every year to prove it. Stay here if you want to explore the more childlike side of Cambridge, with many artsy cafes and open spaces making it feel like a parade year round.

De Freville Avenue

De Freville Avenue is one of the poshest in Cambridge. Staying here in a bed and breakfast may be somewhat costly at times, but well worth the splurge as the houses are all historically decadent and luxuriously large. Spring for a vacation flat rental in this area if you can to truly enjoy the prestige that Cambridge has to offer.

MOST EXCITING THINGS TO DO AND SEE

Obviously, one of the most iconic landmarks of Cambridge is Cambridge University, one of the oldest and most prestigious schools in the world. The best way to experience all 31 colleges on campus, as well as the library and other beautiful buildings, is with a walking tour.

If it’s a warm day out, we highly recommend punting down the river of Cambridge in a guided water-based tour of the city. The romance and charm of this novel activity is not to be missed.

If being outdoors is not possible, we recommend a day of visiting the various churches and chapels in Cambridge such as the St. Peter’s Chapel, the St. Mary the Great university chapel, and the King’s College Chapel, and the Round Chapel for some truly breathtaking experiences.

WEATHER

Cambridge is more dry than many other UK cities, but it does tend to be more cold and there is often a brisk wind blowing through the city. While it is a beautiful place to be on a winter morning, when the frost is still on the grass and there’s a heavy fog, we generally recommend visitors to plan their trips for after Easter to enjoy the best of the spring and summer.

The most important part of planning a trip to Cambridge is not the weather but rather the term times. If you visit during the end of term, there is a chance that you’ll encounter cafes and restaurants overcrowded with stressed students, and many parts of the universities will be closed off to visitors in order to allow students to study. Be sure to look up the term schedules before planning your trip to avoid revisiting revision week!
