Visiting Cambridge in England is a beautiful experience!!!

Cambridge is often associated with universities and exams but the city has a lot more to offer than a top university. With gorgeous flowers mapping the city and wide open spaces, Cambridge is a beautiful city to visit on your trip to England.

Historically, Cambridge has always been known for its renowned University of Cambridge that sets international exams. The city is also surrounded by multiple villages and monuments that make the city historic. Cambridge sits only 80 km to the north of London and is easily approachable from the capital through railway and road communication.

Suprisingly, martial arts are also very popular in England.  The UFC has gained ground with Michael Bisping’s fame as the UFC Middleweight Champion.  There are so many great martial arts including Krav Maga, that get lots of interest throughout Cambridge and the Greater London area.  I know of a great school back in the states that teaches solid martial arts and self defense schools,  Experiencing how they teach & train has me interested in visiting other areas that also practice and see how their skills are integrated.

Stuff to See in Cambridge

The University of Cambridge is associated with a number of colleges that are all great places to visit and explore. These colleges include the King’s College, the Queens’ College, Trinity College, St Johns and Clare College to name a few.

The Botanic Garden is a sight to see for those who love flowers and gardening. Other famous parks include the Jesus Green, Parker’s Piece and the Christ’s Piece.

Although nightlife in Cambridge isn’t as wild as some other cities in the country, The Junction is an area that offers night clubs, comedy tours and dance.
