  • Not able for public access unless going on punting tour. But the around area is nice.
  • Not really that remarkable as on photos. Bridge is signposted saying for students’ access only. But the view and garden nearby is very nice.
  • Hutchinson's iconic neogothic covered bridge, linking St John's College's Third and New Courts over the river Cam. Better than the original in Venice, to which it bears precious little resemblance.
  • Typical tourist site. Nice architecture but nothing more
  • Punting tours are best! They'll tell you all the history! Spectacular!
