With its cobbled streets, twisting river and ancient colleges, Cambridge is without doubt one of the UK’s prettiest student cities, with scenery dominated by the beautiful university buildings and the River Cam, famous for punting, which runs through the city centre.
Cambridge is the second largest town in Cambridgeshire, with a population of over 126,000. With its rich academic history, the town is a perfect place to be a student. Home to the prestigious University of Cambridge, dating to 1209. University Colleges include King’s College, famous for its choir and towering Gothic chapel, as well as Trinity College, founded by Henry VIII, and St John’s, with its 16th-century Great Gate.
There is plenty for students and residents to do and to be inspired by the many beautiful museums and art galleries, such as the Fitzwilliam Museum and Kettle’s Yard, and the city has many passages set around the historic market place and colleges.
