Cambridge is known worldwide thanks to its university, the colleges of which were used in the Oscar winning film "The Theory of Everything". Enjoy a punt on the River Cam as it meanders past the Bridge of Sighs, or head upstream to the idyllic village of Grantchester which inspired Rudyard Kipling to write one of his best loved odes. Architecture isn't the only art-form celebrated in Cambridgeshire - there are several superb galleries, museums and theatres.
The Cambridgeshire Fens is a green swathe of nature reserves and waterways. More than 200 miles of rivers lattice the area, providing ample opportunity for sailing, fishing and watching wildlife such as birds and water voles. Chatteris, Whittlesey, Wisbech and March are all amazing market towns and the ideal base from which to explore the region. Ely, with its impressive cathedral, is also worth visiting.
