Cambridge, England – photos and first impressions

Updated: March 9, 2020

When visiting a major tourist attraction, most people only see the “big” things. It's understandable because not everyone has the luxury of spending a lot of time in a great place. However, most tourist attractions have a lot more to offer than what one can visit in a few hours. Cambridge, England is no exception to the rule. While the town is full of tourist buses that come for a day trip from London, Cambrige yields it's beauty to those who want to slow down and explore the city. Take a look at this beauty in my travel gallery from my first encounter with Cambrige, England.

I remember my first impressions of Cambridge, England! This is a really cool place to visit! Even though it was a bit cold in March, Cambridge opened itself slowly as I was walking through the narrow and crooked streets.

Yes, the Colleges are the most important attraction of Cambridge, but there is much more there to see. Since my first visit to Cambrige, I have returned there several times and even spent a month in this beautiful city.
