Universities & Colleges

Cambridge is the country’s most beautiful historic city. Its elegant centre is framed by architectural triumphs, surrounded by green spaces and home to the University of Cambridge’s world-famous colleges.

Cambridge lives and breathes its past in its present; wander through the winding streets and follow in the steps of the city’s luminaries including Charles Darwin, Alfred Tennyson and Sylvia Plath to name but a few. Poets, philosophers, scientists, medics, engineers, prime ministers and Nobel Peace Prize winners have all left their mark here.

Pay a visit to King’s College Chapel – a truly inspirational experience. It is the largest and most spectacular of the college chapels in Cambridge.

Admire the picturesque waters of the River Cam and gaze in wonder at the Bridge of Sighs at St John’s and the Mathematical Bridge at Queens’.
