Cambridgeshire: step into a real-life Hogsmeade

Harry Potter fans should go on a field trip to Cambridgeshire, an East England region that'll make you feel like you just set foot in Hogsmeade. One of the region's main attractions is the 800-year-old University of Cambridge, the fourth-oldest surviving university in the world. (For all you know, its medieval campus buildings may house moving portraits and staircases.) Cambridgeshire doesn't have a magical Shrieking Shack, but its gorgeous countryside is filled with scenic trails, market towns, and stately mansions that are open to the public. Cambridgeshire vacation rentals let you have an enchanting holiday in an English university town.

Things to do

The University of Cambridge—probably one of the things you came here for

Founded in 1209, the University of Cambridge is just like the fictional Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, in a way. Over the centuries, it has produced many brilliant wizards in various fields, from math and science, to literature and the arts. Its alumni include 116 Nobel Laureates and 15 UK prime ministers. The university's campus is also one of the most beautiful in the world. It's home to King's College Chapel, a magnificent example of Gothic English architecture, as well as the Cambridge University Botanical Gardens, Fitzwilliam Museum, and many other attractions.

Activities

Enchanting elements everywhere in Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire is rural, with towns dating back to the Middle Ages. The charm of its countryside and the medieval flavor of its towns give it a magical flair. You'll be spellbound by the artwork and architecture of the shire's museums, churches, and stately mansions, and you'll enjoy punting River Cam. Sampling the food, from the local goodies in the market towns to the fish and chips in traditional pubs, is also a divine experience. Sports aficionados, meanwhile, can bask in the electrically charged atmosphere whenever Cambridge faces off with old rival Oxford in a football or rugby match.

Weather

Even magical folk need sunscreen and water

Thanks to Cambridgeshire's low altitude and eastern location, it gets less rainfall than London and the western shires. Temperature can peak at 72 degrees in summer and dip to 34 degrees in winter. While Cambridgeshire is generally cool from fall to spring, the summer months of June to August can be dry. Cambridgeshire vacation rentals are busiest in summer, though, so book your accommodations in advance if you're vacationing there from June to August. Also, bring your sunscreen and a bottle of water with you to help you combat the heat and dryness.

Natural features

You won't be on the fence about the beauty of The Fens

Cambridgeshire lies around 63 miles north of London. Large parts of this region are located in an area called the Fens, a flat marshland reclaimed and converted into farmlands. The richness of the Fens has helped Cambridgeshire to become one of the richest agricultural regions of England. Some parts of the Fens have been designated special conservation areas. A notable example is Wicken Fen, home to approximately 8,500 plant and animal species, some of which are native to the Fens. Cambridgeshire vacation rentals provide you opportunities to discover the beauty of the Fens.
