University of Cambridge, Cambridge

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Admire architecture, landscaping, and education at its finest at University of Cambridge, the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world. The institution's 31 colleges and six schools sit fairly close to one another, but you'll often see students going to and from by bicycle. Of particular note is the Great Court of King's College, which features a sprawling green lawn and 16th-century perpendicular Gothic English architecture, as exemplified by the King's College chapel. The oldest colleges were founded in the 13th century, with the very oldest being Peterhouse, dating from 1284. The Cam River runs through the campus and is traversed by multiple bridges; cross over the Bridge of Sighs at St. John's College and the Mathematical Bridge at Queen's College, and keep your eye out for the resident swans. You are free to wander the grounds, but be aware that some colleges charge an entrance fee and access may be limited during the school term.

  • 劍橋大學校園内各個學院新舊建築融合的如此合諧美麗,乘著小船,看著校舍,聽著船夫介紹劍橋大學各個學院,現在知道如果小船都用馬達行駛於小河内,那會打擾學生唸書,這也是美國和世界各地一流大學的校園给大家的第一感受,這是一個唸書進修的地方!校園大街上到處也都是腳踏車,海報,小吃店..etc.唯一不同的是有不少歷史悠久的教堂!  more »

  • remarkable university with some of the most arrogant grad students. :) You will only be respected for your conduct but not your degree. A degree from Cambridge doesn't make yourself a higher being than others. Be humble.
  • ANGELS please read!! GOD NEEDS TO VIEW TIME!!!!! Just put a youtube video up none demonic called god needs to view time about angels safety please view or ask god to view time even if just in leicester or one city in uk like cambridge will get all demons found out and protect all the angels!!!! Don't trust these demons they have been torturing and harming angels for years!!!!! they are completely fake they bragged about cheating lie detectors the "truth drug" its a fake but occasionally have to tell the odd truth that they hate admitting to make it plausible. He will find out the real truth drug if he views time and needs to give them that one and myself!!! I was born in the 90s its not a trick ask him to view time before I was born if god doesn't want to since. its urgent to see what the demons are actually like and what they are really capable of!!!!! WARN GOD its depressing and gonna be awful what he witnesses these demons do and how much pain and torture they have caused angels!!!!!!! I have wrote on leicester university review page and hinchingbrooke hospital, Devon torbay and other hospital pages will have to record a youtube video soon labled god needs to view time but it will just say whats on these message boards to get the angels help please tell God!!!!!!!!
  • i made new cambridge in iran. better of england
  • An enormous and beautiful university with colleges scattered throughout a cute college town. I highly recommend getting a Footprints tour, which made the visit more than just taking photos of elaborately designed buildings. It's a 2 hour free walking tour of several spots on campus along with some history and explanation about the university's organization. A tip at the end of the tour is not necessary but very appreciated and deserved. One thing I disliked is that there is an entrance fee for the colleges. It's very disappointing to hear that Cambridge has decided to make a profit from its name by charging its visitors--many of which could easily be prospective students.
  • Good/best experience you have Working so hard ,👏😘🎼👊🎻✌🆒💋👉:-P
