Cambridge is home to one of the oldest universities in the world. For over 800 years, people have travelled from all over the world to study and visit this wonderful city. With its beautiful college buildings, museums and churches, Cambridge is a joy to visit for tourists and students alike.
Cambridge is a small city with a population of just 100,000 which includes 23,000 students, even though the city is dominated by its ancient university it is also home to some of the most high tech companies in the world and is also home to Microsoft research offices. Whether it’s the history of the university or a chance to visit the market and surrounding shops, Cambridge is a great place to visit.
Why not pop in to The Eagle pub for lunch, see the graffiti left by airmen from WWII? This was also the place where Watson and Crick announced to the world they had discovered ‘The secret of life’ or the structure of DNA in 1953. After lunch, take a walk on Parker’s Piece, one of Cambridge’s most significant open spaces. Cambridge played a unique role in the invention of modern football where the games first set of rules were drawn up by members of the University in 1848. The Cambridge Rules were first played on Parker’s Piece and had a defining influence on the 1863 Football Association rule.
