    I’ve only been to Cambridge once but I would love to visit again and see some more places, thankyou for sharing x


  21. I’ve always wanted to visit Cambridge! I used to work in a study abroad office (I’m in the US), and when our students came back from studying at Cambridge, they always had the most amazing things to say about studying in Cambridge. Some of my colleagues even got to go on work trips, and I was so jealous! Thanks for this amazing list, now I know where I should go when I’m finally able to visit. Thanks!
