Historic Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire is most famous for the university town of Cambridge.

Click on picture for a brief overview

The university itself dates back to the 13th century and famous alumni include Sir Isaac Newton, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Charles Darwin and Frank Whittle. Several of the stunning university buildings are beautifully set on the banks of the River Cam.  King's College Chapel is one of the best examples of late medieval architecture in England. After a tour of the colleges (opening times are often restricted in term time), why not relax with a punt on the river?

The north of Cambridgeshire is home to the unique Fenland landscape. Reclaimed from marshland in the 17th century, the flat countryside of the Fens is criss-crossed by the straight lines of the drainage dykes.
