Based in the east of England, Cambridge is arguably the country's most beautiful historic city. It is home to 31 University colleges including the prestigious University of Cambridge dating to 1209. Cambridge is world famous for its rich heritage, iconic architecture and innovative technology.
Cambridge lives and breathes its past in its present; explore 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 wonder at the Bridge of Sighs at St John’s and the Mathematical Bridge at Queens’. Enjoy the Fitzwilliam Museum which houses world-class collections of art and the quiet and elegant beauty of Kettle’s Yard, home to a distinctive mix of contemporary and 20th century art.
Cambridge has an enviable technology hub and is at the cutting edge of technology, business and science sectors. Many global companies have taken advantage of its prime location and continually expanding science parks including Amazon, Apple, AstraZeneca, Huawei, Microsoft Research and Samsung, to name just a few.

A Cambridge visit would not be complete without a relaxing tour along the RIver Cam in a chauffeured punt. (Blankets and mulled wine make a winter punt more pleasurable!)
There are several fully licensed punt operators available in the city. You can check out the Visit Cambridge website for a full list of operators and contact details.
