Cambridge is famous as a center for education and the buildings that house the colleges are simply amazing. The city sits along the River Cam and has an abundance of history. Walking around here really took us back in time.
We first took a walk along the backs. It’s a beautiful park behind the colleges. Here you can see some of the fantastic architecture on the backside of the colleges which is as equally stunning as the front.
This is also where you can go ‘punting’. This is a classic Cambridge sport that involves using a pole along the rivers bottom to push the boat.
The Bridge of Sighs is simply stunning! It took us a bit to actually be able to get to it and we may have gone in a back entrance that we shouldn’t have but the gate was open…it’s a covered bridge at St John’s College, Cambridge University. It was built in 1831 and crosses the River Cam between the college’s Third Court and New Court.
Majority of the students ride bikes around so this is a very friendly city to cycle in.
Before we left Cambridge, I just had to do the obligatory phone booth photo 😊
We truly enjoyed Cambridge and highly recommend a visit here. Many thanks to our friend Greg who suggested we visit this beautiful place!
