Cambridge is home to the UK’s second oldest university, Cambridge University. It is consistently ranked in the Top 5 universities all over the world and has produced over 90 nobel prize winners. Leafy, green, and as serene as it is busy, Cambridge is home to 31 colleges. Many of these colleges are stunning and make up the impressive architectural soul of the city of Cambridge.

The river Cam (after which the city is named) runs through the centre of the city. Here you will find many punts (special boats that are pushed along the river with long poles) filled with students and tourists alike.
