Cambridge

Cambridge is home to one of the oldest universities in the world. For over 800 years, people have travelled from all over the world to study and visit this wonderful city. Cambridge is a small city with a population of just 100,000 which includes 23,000 students. It is also home to some of the most high tech companies in the world.

University:
There are over 28 colleges that help make up the University of Cambridge. Many of the colleges are open to the public but perhaps the most interesting college to visit is Kings College. Kings College was founded in 1441 by King Henry VI shortly after completing Eton College near Windsor. The college, one of the largest in Cambridge, is dominated by its gothic chapel. 

Fitzwilliam Museum:
This is the university museum and was founded in 1816 by Viscount Fitzwilliam. He left his private collection to the university.

Punting:
A punt is a flat bottomed boat designed for use in shallow rivers. The punt is propelled by pushing a long pole along the floor of the river bed. The area around Cambridge is very flat, therefore the river was very shallow and the punt became a perfect form of transport for goods and people. Today punting is a popular leisure activity and costs vary approx. £10 each.
