Things to do

Gaze up at Cambridge's King's College Chapel

While Cambridge is studded with magnificent architecture, nothing quite tops King's College Chapel. Built in the 16th century, it's one of the UK's most spectacular Gothic buildings. Visit during the school term to catch the world-famous choir singing under the fan-vaulted ceiling. Trinity College is another iconic building, fronted by a grand Tudor gateway and grassy Great Court. Inside, you'll find treasures like the Wren Library, which houses 1000s of books and manuscripts dating to the 1800s. Think originals from Shakespeare, AA Milne and other beloved British writers.


A picnic lunch in Cambridge

One of the best ways to soak up the atmosphere is simply by strolling around the campus. After you've had your fill of colleges and courtyards, why not catch your breath in the Backs? This string of parks and gardens hugs the banks of the River Cam and offers postcard-perfect views of grand campus buildings and elegant pedestrian bridges. Why not stock up on supplies and enjoy a sun-dappled picnic or leisurely book reading session? On a sunny day renting a boat and punting on the river is a popular pastime.


A summer of Shakespeare in Cambridge

Summer is high season in Cambridge, when the campus enjoys warm weather and plenty of sunshine. The town throws a lively calendar of events, including the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival. Performances are held in the university's atmospheric college gardens. Planning a summer getaway to the UK? From Victorian terraces to characterful cottages, Cambridge vacation rentals are big enough to house the whole family. The academic year starts in October and winds down in July. If you want the full student experience, try to visit during term.
