Once you arrive in Cambridge and have seen the city centre a lot of people get bored and immediately get to London. Don’t get me wrong. London is amazing and being this close it is almost a requirement to visit it soon (click here for suggestions how to spend you first day in London).
But Cambridge itself has much to offer and it would be a shame not to explore the City and its surroundings.
Here are some suggestions what to do:
– Punt along the backs
– Walk along the boathouses
– Watch the bumps
– The Botanical Garden
– Punt or walk to Grantchester
– The Fitzwilliam Museum
– Walk along the river Cam (For different stretches see here: 1, 2)
