Sometimes, the best thing to do is to get out of the city on the weekend and go for a day trip. That’s exactly what we did last time when it was sunny. We jumped on the train to Cambridge and explored this lovely city which is mostly famous about its university.
When we arrived, we just walked from the train station to the center, it took only 15 minutes. The city’s atmosphere was amazing and not that busy as we expected, only a couple students and tourists were hanging around.
First, we visited the Cambridge University Campus then King’s College Chapel and the Mathematical Bridge. The stunning gothic chapel that dominates the centre of Cambridge was wonderful. It’s a must-visit, even if church-spotting isn’t your thing. We also enjoyed to be in the nature, smell the countryside air. We didn’t have time for punting on River Cam but next time we would like to try it. I recommend to get lost in the city, walk around and be amazed by the historical streets and magnificent architecture.
We spent the rest of the day in the Cambridge University Press Bookshop and then we had GBK hamburgers. I also need to mention the Chinese supermarkets in Cambridge, there are so many and you can buy some cool and interesting food, candy and fizzy drinks.
Loved this day in Cambridge so much, can’t wait to visit again at spring!
