CAMBRIDGE My travel instincts told me that there was more to Cambridge than just walking in and out of old colleges in the University....
Top Places To Visit 1 Spots
King's College Chapel
Don’t miss: The best way to explore this town is by taking a punting ride down the picturesque River Cam along the famous ‘backs’ (college gardens) and catching some great views of the famous colleges here. Also don’t skip King’s college chapel for a dose of truly stunning Gothic architecture.Eat: I find it fascinating to eat in places where my ancestors might have also dined, because these go back much so far in time. One such place is the Eagle pub that dates back to the 16th century. Order good old fish and chips and wash it down with a beer.Day 12 to 17: London Distance from Cambridge: 100km
Located in the heart of the city, the London waterloo train station and the underground from there, connect all parts of the city very well. Further, to get the best out of your visit to England, it is of utmost importance that you tour everything from the big dream city of London and a quaint countryside along the English Channel, to the historically significant Cambridge. All these places are at most 2-3 hours by train, from London waterloo. TIPS TO PROCURE CHEAP STAYFor solo travellers, youth hostels are the best options. Be spoilt for choice atwww.hostelworld.com and www.booking.comIf you are travelling as a family or group, it is best to book an air bnb accommodation or an entire dorm to yourself (if you are 4, 6, 8 or 10 people). These websites are useful for booking cheap accommodation anywhere in the UK.TIPS TO SAVE MONEY AND TIME ON TRANSPORTATION AND SIGHTSEEINGRemember to watch out for 2 for 1 passes at cafes, train stations and shops to cut down on your budget for the London wheel and the Thames cruise. Also to avoid waiting in the ridiculously long queues outside London eye, you might have to reach there as early as 8am, when the ride opens. Buy the London day (13.40 GBP) pass that covers the metro and train lines that connect all zones of London.If you are a student travelling from Europe, remember to carry your student ID cards to avail your discount on entry tickets into the chapels and colleges of Cambridge.PLACES TO SEE IN ENGLANDTo soak in the atmosphere of the cities, it is best to chalk out a walking tour.LONDON
