Cambridge University and the city of Cambridge are so intertwined, they are often thought of as being the same place. The university is where Newton, Darwin and Hawking, among many other scientists and dozens of Nobel Prize winners, received their higher education. The various colleges of the university were all built in different periods and, as a result, they reflect the different architectural styles common of the era in which they were built. The majority of structures are early Medieval style, with the school buildings' colonnades, staircases and walls decorated with solemn statues and seals. Taking a tour of the college grounds is an exceptional experience. While in Cambridge, visitors can take a flat-bottomed boat for a tour of the Cam River. Along the way, the beautiful scenery of King's College, Trinity College and the Queen's College Garden, will pass by, along with floating under many bridges including the Mathematical Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs.

The University of Cambridge is the city of Cambridge itself, passing through the lively open-air market next to King's College, and a variety of small shops are beginning to appear on the roadside. The most traditional industry in Cambridge is the sugar industry, so the candy store is a major feature here, and it is basically a hundred-year-old shop. Compared to the supermarket-like shelves in the city, the candy store here is more like a library, and the books of all tastes are higher than others. If you have a curious taste bud, this is probably a carnival, but if you are not lucky enough to eat an "fennel" taste, you may frown.
In addition to the lively candy store, the most overcrowded at the time of check-in is a robe shop. Although you dont need to wear a robe during class in Cambridge, there are always formal occasions such as the dinner of the dean at the beginning of the school. . In addition to the robe, the store also sells a variety of equipment with various college emblems, such as cups, bags, socks, scarves, sweaters and so on.
As far as I know, "Harry Potter" didn't take a scene in Cambridge, J.K. Rowling also has nothing to do with Cambridge, but what about Hogwarts?
Recall that this kind of equipment is required for admission, the grand president welcomes the dinner, and the various struggles between colleges are not the Hogwarts? Even the weird tastes of the candy store are like the legendary "snake worm" in the diagonal alley.
Maybe Cambridge has nothing to do with JK Rowling's creation, but as a writer who grew up in the UK, her life background and the images we read are actually the traditional British academic culture. Britain itself.

I gently came to see this romantic Cambridge / hc /
/ hc /
after leaving the city of London, the first stop is the prestigious Cambridge, the initial impression of Cambridge is A quaint college, a green lawn, holding books and students from various colleges. Because Xu Zhimo's "Don't Kink Bridge", it is covered with a layer of romantic color.

In fact, Cambridge itself is a British town with 100,000 inhabitants. In addition to the famous Cambridge University, it also has a full range of churches, shopping centers, restaurants, markets, etc. The matching, life color is very strong.

Leave the bus and walk along the lush lawn to see the guide map of Cambridge Town, lock your location, see the overall layout of the town, and move on. Bypassing Queen's College is a unique mathematical bridge. The mathematics bridge is almost universally known. It is legendary that Newton designed and built it. In fact, after people's calculations, this bridge has nothing to do with Newton. Maybe it is only the future students who respect and love Newton.

At the small pier near the Math Bridge, you can rent a boat to see the town along the Kang River. A leafy boat ran down the river, and the little brother of the pontoon showed his humor and became a unique scenery.

I chose the walking route and watched the colleges at close range. Although there were only bustling tourists during the holidays, I couldnt see the students coming here. The tiled atmosphere reveals the ancient culture. Each college has its own unique history and stories. Of course, the most famous is the Trinity College where Newton is located. The tree of the apples that smashed the head of Newtons head is also standing on the grass outside the college. It is the Trinity College. The most embarrassing star in the field.

The most magnificent and magnificent King's College is Cambridge's most worthwhile place to visit. It needs to be purchased separately. I think it is necessary to observe it here because it is not only ancient. The building, the sacred church, and the beautiful scenery are the places where Xu Zhimo wrote the first "No More Cambridge". Go find the stone with Chinese characters, take a picture with a happy photo, and take a photo of the tourists, because this place is a place where Chinese literati leave their style, although this stone is said to be a street in the country.

As one of the top universities in the world, Cambridge has both the ancient cultural heritage of England and its own personality. It will feel the inheritance of human culture. Feel the influence of knowledge, and the poet gives it the most romantic beauty.

Recommended tour time: 3 hours, feel the culture, appreciate the beauty of Cambridge, visit the old market, and immerse yourself in pure British life.

King's College: Cambridge's most dazzling college King's College is the most central and most eye-catching college of Cambridge. It was founded in 1441 by King Henry VI and was therefore named the "King’s" college. The college's famous alumni include: economist Keynes, mathematician "father of the computation" Turing, the poet Xu Zhimo, among others. King's College is one of the most outstanding examples of Gothic architecture in the UK, especially the College Chapel. Normally, visits to King's College would view the buildings, courtyards, and the college chapel. The ceilings and glass windows of the chapel interior are particularly exquisite, with carved wooden screens. The choir of King’s College is also famous.
