Cambridge is mostly known for its 2 universities and rightly so. This university is known all over the world and includes campuses like the renowned Cavendish Laboratory, King's College Chapel, and the Cambridge University Library. Located just 80km north of London in East Anglia this lovely town is welcoming and can capture your attention for days. Nearly 25% of the population is a student at one of the high end schools in the town. Kings College Chapel is a part of the university you should see as it is nearly 500 years old. The building is still almost the same as when it was finished in 1515. An impressive building that has nothing to do with the university is the Great St Mary's church which you can spot miles away located just off the town centre. When visiting the church you will also spot the Senate House which is the heart of the University of Cambridge.
Cambridge is easy to get to by either train or plane as London Stansted airport is only 45 km away and train departures for London's Kings Cross happen every 30 minutes. Driving here by car can be problematic as the road system is not great. A lot of north/south and east/west roads merge together close to Cambridge and this causes a lot of traffic jams.
For sports fanatics Cambridge provides a lot of action. Not only were the first ever rules for a game of football/soccer drawn up here, but the battles between Oxford and Cambridge University in the varsity boat race are legendary and almost stop the nation dead in its tracks. The only big team playing here is the rugby club as the football team is only just managing to hold on to a place in the football leagues.
Thanks to the diverse population of the town there are many festivals held each year and one of them is the Beer Festival. In 2009 90000 pints of beer were consumed here in just one week along with a tonne of cheese. The Cambridge Folk Festival is the largest Folk Festival in the UK and the Cambridge Film festival is only second to the Edinburgh Film Festival in regards to popularity.
