Cambridge is my favorite day trip from London. However, Cambridge in itself is a beautiful location to explore for more time. From some of the oldest buildings in Europe to beautiful museums and parks, Cambridge offers so many things to see and do. If you have a few more days in the Cambridge area, you can also explore some beautiful places within easy driving distance. Come along with me as we explore my favorite day trips from Cambridge, England.
Warwickshire county, England
England is filled with castles! And most of them are very well preserved and amazing to visit. We visited a few English castles and even our kids loved them. They have beautiful museums with lots of old military gear as well as gowns and party dresses from the old times. There is lots to learn in these places as they give you a snapshot in time of British high society. Read on about four of these beautiful fairy tale castles in Britain.
My first interaction with Stratford-upon-Avon was when I studied Shakespeare in 7th grade. I remember a nice picture of the Avon river and the church were he was buried. At that time, that picture made me believe deep in my heart that one day I’ll be able to visit this beautiful place. And so it happened, 20 years later. We visited a lot of towns in England, but for me Stratford-upon-Avon will remain in the top five must-see towns and number one for charm and inspiration! I just loved it!
