The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Cambridge

Cambridge needs little introduction. Its name is a synonym worldwide for academic excellence. The 31 colleges of its university have nurtured an influence out of all proportion to its size. Yet Cambridge appeals as much to the heart as to the head. Smaller and more charming than its great rival Oxford – ‘the other place’, as it’s known in academic circles – it is a cornucopia of historical nooks, crannies and glorious vistas: soaring Gothic chapels and hushed Tudor courtyards; narrow cobbled streets full of bicycles; gowned choirs in chapels at Christmas. And, of course, it is a town where you can punt gently down the River Cam. Small wonder over four million people visit each year.
