Living in Cambridge

The University City of Cambridge has many attractions, both in the city itself and in the surrounding area.

Whether you want exciting nightlife, the relaxing atmosphere of one of Cambridge's many parks, or the fascination of a first-class museum, it's all here.

There's a small but packed shopping centre, a wide range of pubs and restaurants and a central market selling a variety of items.

We highly recommend you visit the historic city centre and the 'Backs'. Ideally, take a punt trip along the River Cam to view the Colleges, including the famous King's College Chapel. Cambridge has many museums, the Fitzwilliam and three other University museums having national standing, as well as a host of other smaller museums.

There are excellent transport facilities available to students in Cambridge.  Buses run every ten minutes from outside the College into the centre of town. 

Within easy travelling distance of Cambridge is Ely, famous for its Cathedral, Newmarket, home of horse racing and Duxford Imperial War Museum.  Close by are the National Trust properties of Wimpole Hall and Anglesey Abbey. It's also only 50 minutes by train from London
