Quaint, charming, picturesque and idyllic are some of the many adjectives that could be used to describe the city that boasts one of the world’s most renowned and prestigious universities. Cambridge's pure beauty cannot be disputed due to its historic little streets, the sweet-smelling oasis of beautiful flowers in the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens and its exquisite architecture- photo opportunities certainly exist in abundance.

Due to the exalted University of Cambridge, it is no surprise that Cambridge is steeped in heritage and cultural opportunities. Outside of London, Cambridge even boasts the greatest number of internationally distinguished collections in the UK, and fortunately for its visitors, a majority of the eight museums which can be found require no admittance fee. Between the many independent galleries as well as the Fitzwilliam Museum (the arts and antiquities museum for the University of Cambridge which contains works spanning all centuries) and Kettle’s Yard (a haven for contemporary art fanatics), it is clear that Cambridge is certainly a place for those who are heavily in tune with their artistic side.

However, if you are into a different kind of art, there is plenty of theatre to keep you entertained from student efforts to West-End standard productions. Likewise, if the music is in you, during the summer there will be plenty of outdoor live music to keep your attention as will the melodious sound of the harmonious Choir of King’s College.

Partake in a leisurely shopping spree; enjoy the view while punting on the River Cam or tour the majestic colleges of the University of Cambridge-there are no shortage of things to do in Cambridge.
