Historic university city

Cambridge is home to one of the world’s oldest and most famous universities. It’s a very English experience. It is said that if you take deep breaths of Cambridge air, your IQ rises like a hot air balloon. For centuries, the nation’s brightest (and richest) have studied in Cambridge and its sister university city Oxford. It’s one of the great places of learning. And it’s a great place to enjoy yourself.

Cambridge has its own film festival , as well as the Summer in the City season, the Shakespeare Festival , the Strawberry Fair , the Cambridge Literary Festival , the Science Festival , the Buskers and Street Performers Festival , the Big Weekend event, and perhaps most famous of all, the Cambridge Folk Festival . If you need more excitement, London is just 50 minutes away by train.

Cambridge is quite small. The population is about 125,000. About 25,000 are students. Do you remember the story about the apple falling off the tree next to Isaac Newton who then developed the law of gravity and made many other extraordinary discoveries?  Well, he lived and studied in Cambridge. So, you'll be fine.
