We say

Tennyson read his works here; Thackeray and Charles Kingsley were customers. The latest incumbent to the UK’s oldest bookshop (since 1581 at least) is the university’s own imprint, established by Henry VIII in 1534. Among esoteric academic tomes you’ll find laymen-friendly books on Cambridge and academic primers. Matched only in oxford (of course) this is the destination for the widest range of books you could possibly desire. If you want to wander through cambridge and enjoy its historic sites, there's no way better to join the acclaimed names that once paced the cobbles here than with a book under your arm!
