This was my last weekend in Cambridge. That means that I had to do all the things that I wanted to do that I didn’t get to do. I know last week I posted about a perfect (or at least amazing) day in Cambridge, but today I lived it. So I’m going to tell some more amazing things that you should do in Cambridge.
Go to New Heights.
What are the best views in the city? For about £3.90, you can climb to the top of St. Mary’s Church and see the whole city, out into the Cambridgeshire countryside. The rooftop view of the old city buildings almost sends you back to another century. Want a more more modern view? Try the Varsity hotel. Just go 6 floors up to the roof and you can see the wide expanse of the city. This option is also free of charge, and if you go at night to watch fireworks like I did, you won’t be disappointed.
Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
Chocolat Chocolate is just as succulent as it sounds. The scrumptious ice cream there is only the tip of the iceberg- there are also strawberries and hot cocoa, chocolate candies that you can mix and match, and baked goods such as brownies and cakes. I had been wanting to visit this sweet shop my whole time in Cambridge and simply never found the time. It was a perfectly sweet send off back home.
It’s What’s On the Inside That Counts
While walking around the city of Cambridge, one can’t help but admire the various colleges that make up Cambridge University. Today, however, I got to tour the inside of one of the colleges- and it was beautiful! I walked through the ancient halls made of wood, the beautiful gardens that were surrounded by the tall stone dorms, and entered one of the most beautiful chapels I have ever seen.
Please note- this is apparently also a great place to get engaged, as a friend of mine did!
So, my time here in Cambridge ends on a very high, sweet note. I hope one day you come for a visit. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
