Cambridge

Cambridge is home to one of the world’s oldest and most famous universities. It’s a very English experience. It is said that if you take deep breaths of Cambridge air, your IQ rises like a hot air balloon. For centuries, the nation’s brightest (and richest) have studied in Cambridge and its sister university city Oxford. It’s one of the great places of learning. And it’s a great place to enjoy yourself.

Cambridge has its own film festival , as well as the Summer in the City season, the Shakespeare Festival , the Strawberry Fair , the Cambridge Literary Festival , the Science Festival , the Buskers and Street Performers Festival , the Big Weekend event, and perhaps most famous of all, the Cambridge Folk Festival . If you need more excitement, London is just 45 minutes away by train.

Cambridge is quite small. The population is about 125,000. About 25,000 are students. It is also a relatively expensive place to live. Prices are similar to London and Oxford.
