About Cambridge


Cambridge brings many images to mind: the breathtaking view of King's College Chapel, the rich intricacy of Gothic architecture, students cycling to lectures, and summer punting on the River Cam. The River Cam enters Cambridge from the south west of the city and heads north past many of the historic colleges of the University.
