Cambridge is a world-renowned picturesque university city, home to one of the most prestigious universities in the world and its beautiful colleges. They are a must-see if you’re in Cambridge. Going for a long stroll down the Backs, or going on a punting boat tour down the River Cam between the colleges, is simply an unforgettable experience. Visit St John’s College to see the 16th century Great Gate and walk through the court to see the unique covered Bridge of Sighs. The King’s College is also worth seeing and especially when the famous choir performs in the medieval glass window King’s College Chapel. If you’re thirsty after walking around the courts, you should pop in to the Cambridge Gin Laboratory for a tasting experience filled with knowledge. Just make sure you have a designated driver beforehand. You can also visit the Fitzwilliam Museum to see the collections of art and artefacts, or visit The Center for Computing History to see how our devices have evolved over time.
Cambridge is also a great place to set out on daytrips from, thanks to its proximity to well-connected roads. Half an hour away, if you head north-east on the A10, is the quaint city of Ely. Its abbey traces back to 673 and despite invasions over the course of history, it still towers over Ely today. The family home of Oliver Cromwell is also located in the town and gives you an insight into life in the 17th century. Further down the A10, you can reach the medieval seaport town of King’s Lynn. The museum there houses ‘Seahenge’ – a four-century-old Bronze Age monument made of oak. The wooden trunks form a circle with an upturned tree-root bottom in the middle, reminiscent of the famous Stonehenge monolith. Plan your time in Cambridge with an Enterprise car rental in mind and fill your trip with even more great memories. Get a quote above and wherever you’re going – we’ll get you there.
