Hotels are expensive! And usually I hate spending the night somewhere, paying lots of money for it all the while knowing that I have an amazingly comfortable kingsize bed in Cambridge that I am already paying rent for.
That combined with the fact that a PhD is a pretty time-consuming affair means that daytrips (and to an extend weekend trips) are ideal for me. Cambridge is well-connected as far as public transport goes. Thus the following trips can be made by every student who knows how to ride a train or get on a bus.
Here are some suggestions for daytrips:
– London (Always a great option)
– Kings Lynn
