Toured a few colleges. Very different from U.S. colleges. Don't walk on the lawn. There are plenty of signs. We were fortunate to have a group dinner at a different college. Trinity and a few other famous colleges are worth touring.

The Trinity is a must stop. The most expensive and most reputable College in Cambridge. The main court is specially suggestive. Do not forget to visit the impressive library.

A must visit attraction if you go to Cambridge. This looks like something out of a movie set. The history is amazing. Beautiful architecture.

Hi. Car parking in Cambridge is quite expensive, especially compared to the rest of the country. However, for the city, you can try the car park opposite Parkers Piece (sorry, but I can't remember the name) for ease of... More
