The city of Cambridge is one of the real attractions to the county. While it is famous for its university (the second oldest in the English speaking world) it has much more to offer than just academic recognition. Narrow streets and old age atmosphere perhaps characterise the university town best and provide a snapshot of the region as a whole.
Indeed, Cambridge is particularly prestigious for its art connections and boasts the most galleries in a single area outside of London, most of which are free to enter, particularly if they are affiliated with the eight museums at the university. Being a predominately university focused town Cambridge offers an active nightlife scene with plenty of bars, pubs and clubs to suit all tastes.
Outside the town of Cambridge, there is a lot to do in and around the rest of the county. The region is known for its rolling scenes of greenery and traditional villages and towns that dot the countryside. In South Cambridge alone there are over 350 square miles of cycling and walking routes where you come across the odd majestically hidden stately home on your travels. Ely is a cathedral city in the county and is a hidden gem in Cambridgeshire’s crown. With its waterways and tranquil boat rides alongside the cobbled streets with small tea rooms and coffee shops, Ely is a fascinating place to visit.
One of the most well-known attractions in the county is the Newmarket race course. Horse racing enthusiasts will be well aware of Cambridgeshire’s significance in the sport and the Newmarket course offers an extravagant and enjoyable day out. Also in the county is the historically significant town of Huntingdon. It was the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell (which is now a museum) and has a plethora of Georgian buildings lining its narrow streets. Indeed, William Shakespeare used to perform in the town during the summer months and it still retains a cultural feel and arty outlook to this day.
Cambridgeshire is a county that never seems to go out of date. It manages to keep its traditional nature while being at the centre of academic excellence in the world. While the emphasis is on the city of Cambridge itself with its bustling student crowd, artistic importance and pleasant atmosphere, there is much beyond the town limits. Glorious countryside with nature trails, wildlife and small towns associated with important historical figures is just the tip of what the county has to offer. While other counties may have modernity, Cambridgeshire has cultural and historical significance.
