The best things to do in Cambridge

The best things to do in Cambridge

Most visitors to Cambridge go nuts about the place. Most of those who are stuck there for a few years as students only figure out how lovely it is, and how lucky they were, much later in life. Like olives and whisky, Cambridge is largely wasted on the young. Perhaps this has to do with the city’s alarming and, in a way, almost unbearable concentration of history and brilliance and beauty, which can seem overwhelming. The trick is to revel in the beauty without getting too hot up about the brilliance or the history. Go, as they say, with the flow. And as a visitor to Cambridge, that’s easy enough. During the summer months, there are people who, for a small consideration, will propel you with, or even against, the flow of the Cam, the river that runs through the middle of the city and gives it its name, in a long, low boat by means of a long, thin stick, beneath willow trees and bridges and past all manner of architectural marvels.
