Embracing the magic of a day in Cambridge
Welcome to a day in Cambridge.
If you’re planning to explore one of the most historic and culturally rich cities in the United Kingdom, a day trip to Cambridge is the perfect stop.
Cambridge, well known for its world-famous University, brims with historical charm, beautiful architecture, quaint passages, and beautiful open green spaces.
So, what to do and where to visit during a single day in Cambridge?
Start your day off at King’s College and the majestic King’s College Chapel. This iconic building represents Cambridge like no other. The incredible Gothic architecture, intricate details, and soaring ceiling create an ethereal ambience that one shouldn’t miss.
Next, head to Christ’s College for leisurely walk. It’s an incredibly beautiful College and the gardens are open to the public in the week (apart from during the quiet period). Take time to recharge on Darwin’s bench or just explore the tranquil Fellows’ Garden.
Nothing is more ‘Cambridge’ than a classic punt along the River Cam. With a punt, a flat-bottomed boat propelled by a pole, you can glide peacefully along the water while your guide shares fun anecdotes about the university and its past.
