Cambridge Serviced Apartments

Tuesday July 2, 2013 by Marietjie Snyman

Cambridge is one of Europe’s most popular historic cities, able to offer its visitors not only an abundance of beautiful buildings, museums and art galleries but the ability to admire this wonderful architecture as well as the majestic college buildings of the famous University in a lovely, tranquil environment.

Cambridge is handily sized for getting around either on foot or by bicycle. And of course its obligatory to go punting down on the river Cam, as this issue is entitled quintessentially Cambridge!

Of course this is also done in Oxford but not half as well. At least that’s what a young man wearing a light blue rugby jersey told us! On a serious note, this is a great way to see the backs of seven of the colleges and their bridges.

If you fancy a couple of pints of real ale (and lets face it, after a hard days punting, who's not going to?), why not pay a visit to The Eagle Pub dating back to the 16th century, not forgetting to read the comments on the ceiling left by brave WWII pilots. And if you're exceptionally lucky you might just bump into the pub's very own ghost.

“If music be the food of love, play on“ quothe our famous bard and The Shakespeare Festival is held in Cambridge from the 8th July until the 24th August and attracts up to 25,000 visitors each year. There are about 200 chairs at each Festival venue available on a first come, first served basis. There's also a picnic area immediately in front of the chairs for audience members to sit on the lawn and enjoy a picnic.

Cambridge is not only a University town swarmed in the summer months by tourists but is also a centre of high-tech industry, being sometimes known as Silicon Fen – a play on Silicon Valley and the fens surrounding the city. Indeed many of our valued tenants come from this sector.
