City of Perspiring Dreams

Steeped in history and tradition, Cambridge is renowned for its ancient colleges and sprawling green gardens. The verdant meadows surrounding this old urban center lend it a surprising air of tranquility and provide it with a far more laid-back appeal than its historic rival Oxford. Many sections of the city, featuring buildings that have seen little or no change for centuries, display an old-world patina possibly unmatched by any other place in the country. The atmosphere of academic achievement seems to permeate the walls of the historic university buildings, with young cyclists loaded with books meeting sightseers at every corner of the old cobbled passageways. Take a look at our United Kingdom (UK) vacation route planner to refine the details of your trip to Cambridge.
