The historic, university city of Cambridge is one of the top tourist destinations in the UK. Whether wandering through the cobbled streets looking up at the stunning, historic architecture, punting down the River Cam, visiting the world-famous King’s College Chapel, enjoying traditional English tea whilst watching gown-clad university students cycle past the university colleges or gently meandering through the Botanical Gardens, there is certainly something here for every visitor.
For our students, living in Cambridge is an intrinsically English experience. The city has a wide variety of boutique as well as high street shops, a stunning pedestrianised area with street-side cafes and restaurants, busy central market as well as a plethora of museums, art galleries and theatres and parks to explore.
Cambridge as a city is extremely safe, flat and easy to navigate. Most people walk or cycle around the centre with its narrow streets and arches however there are also excellent bus services, well used by our students. St Andrew’s College itself is only five minutes from the train station and central London is only 50 minutes by train.
