It is easy to Spend a Week in Cambridge, England
Cambridge is my favorite city in England. A 45 minute train ride from Kings Cross Station in London, there are 11 museums. Visit the Botanical Gardens - great tea & coffee shops are the Botanic Garden Café, Courtyard Café at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Fitzbillies, & the Orchard Tea Gardens. A famous bar is the Eagle. Go look at World War II fighter pilots signatures on the ceiling. Good restaurants: The Bloomsbury & Riverside Brasserie. Rent a car-there are some wonderful pubs in small villages like The Three Horseshoes at Madingley, Tickell Arms in Whittlesford, Cricketers at Clavering. Visit 3 stately homes- Anglesey Abbey, Wimpole Hall, & Ely Cathedral. Nearby drives to villages with stunning architecture are Long Melford, Medieval, Laverham, Elizabethan, & Stanford, Georgian. Cambridge is a wonderful place to walk around. A must is the tour of King’s College. There is also a Ghost Tour every Friday at 6pm-find out why Corpus Christi is the most haunted college. I have never done this; I don’t fancy seeing a medieval lady in a long white nightie with ruffled lace sleeves floating by! Cambridge is diverse. I love shopping the unique cobblestone streets with Tudor architecture. St. John’s Street & All Saints Passage is home to the stunning entrance to St. John’s College where people are drawn to the outdoor Arts & Craft Market every Saturday. Tucked away next to the market you’ll find All Saints Passage-visit the cheese shop, delicatessen & luxury lingerie boutique.
