Compare & Save on car rental in Cambridge

From the breathtaking view of King's College Chapel over the river Cam, to the Gothic intricacy of the architecture, Cambridge has much to offer the two-day tourist. Even watching students cycling to lectures or punting on the River Cam evokes images of a bygone era. But there is more to Cambridge than history and academia. In recent years, it has become a technological centre of international repute, an extension of the city’s work under the estimable banner of the University, which was founded in the 13th century by scholars who left Oxford after a local dispute. They chose the quiet solitude of Cambridge as a suitable location for furthering their learning. Cambridge has educated many famous alumni, including Isaac Newton, Bertrand Russell, John Milton, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Lord Byron. Cambridge academics have won more Nobel Prizes than any other university in the world. More than 3.5 million visitors come to Cambridge every year to enjoy this historic place, once described by Forbes Magazine 'one of the most beautiful cities in the world.'

Things to do in Cambridge

Cambridge University consists of semi-independent colleges, some centrally-located, others up to 3 miles from the town centre. Some colleges charge an entrance fee, and most are closed to visitors during the University exam season from the end of May until the second week of June. The Fitzwilliam Museum houses the art and antiquities of the University. Located on Trumpington Street, the 19th Century building receives around 300,000 visitors annually.
