Bonus- A day outside of London, meet Cambridge
After we had a hack of a time in our comfort zone London, we’ve decided to spend a full day out.
We took a piece of paper and cut it into small pieces, wrote down our options for a daily trip, put it all in a hat, and Cambridge was the selected piece of paper.
Let’s start by getting from London to Cambridge-it was a Piece of Cake!
Take the tube in London to King’s cross/ St Pancras station, switch to the rail train station through St Pancras (it’s all in the same building) buy the train ticket to Cambridge and at the same opportunity buy the return ticket , it’s much cheaper that way. When you reach to Cambridge train station take any bus to the city center and you are all set to start exploring!
You must(!) visit both King’s College and Trinity College. The chapel in King’s college will amaze you as well as the endless lawns in both of the colleges. See the remarkable view of the river, and watch the punting groups races. We stopped for a coffee break and i’m embarrassed to say that I completely forgot the name of the coffee-shop, However, I will say it was cozy, they had the best coffee, and they gave us croissant “on the house”.
In trinity college it is important to check the wren library as it is one of the most impressive libraries.
After you let your unexpected sudden crave for learning, fade away a little, you can go punting in the river. Book you tour or your punt boat just when you arrive to the punting point itself and not before.
Than before you have to catch the train back, go to the historical “Eagle pub”. The Eagle is one of the largest pubs in Cambridge, England, on the north side of Bene’t street. It was originally established in 1667 as the "Eagle and Child".
Apart from the main bar, it sports a beer garden and the RAF (Royal Air Force) bar.
In the RAF bar section you will see signatures graffiti of world war II airmen covering the ceiling and walls.
