10 Things to do in Cambridge Travel Guide | London Day Trip video transcript:

Today we are here at Kings Cross station and we are going on yet another day trip. Another one. Where are we off to? Another day trip from London. We’re off to Cambridge today.

There are a number of trains from Kings Cross to Cambridge with journeys ranging from 45 minutes to a little over an hour and a half. Buying your ticket in advance is always a good idea as you can get a better price, and it’s also wise to travel off peak.

If you decide to walk into town like we did, Cambridge University Botanic Garden makes for a nice little stop. The garden has over 8000 species.

It is lunchtime for us and we’ve walked over to the Regal. Apparently this used to be a hotel, then a cinema and now it is a pub. I’ve ordered breakfast and Sam is having lunch. I’m waiting for my eggs benedict and I think you’re having a Steak and Ale Pie? And a pint of Guinness

Feeling stuffed from that pub fare, we started making our way into town, and it wasn’t long before we came across the River Cam which was teaming with punters. Some made it look easy, while others were struggling, but we had a different idea and decided to go visit one of the colleges.

As a fun fact: The University of Cambridge was founded in 1209, just a few decades after Oxford University, making it the second oldest university in the English-speaking world. It is divided into 31 independent colleges, and our first one of the day was Queens College.

The most popular thing to do here in Cambridge aside from of course exploring the University is to go punting. It is very crowded out there.

So next up we’re inside the Great Saint Mary’s Church and we’re going to be climbing the tower because apparently these are the best views of all of Cambridge. We like to climb towers.

The spiralling staircase is quite narrow and it has to accommodate traffic going up and down, which requires being a contortionist at times, but that’s how you earn those views!

Next up we are doing Trinity College and this is the largest college here at Cambridge University and also it was founded by Henry VIII.

That is basically it for our travel guide from Cambridge. I feel like we barely put a dent in Cambridge. We are back at the station just waiting for our train now back to London.

This is part of our Travel in England video series showcasing British food, British culture and British cuisine.

Thank you for that travel guide to Cambridge. Just got back from England myself and we only had time to see Oxford. We did a guided walking tour. I would highly recommend one for other travelers because it gives you historical context for all those beautiful buildings you are seeing.

rotitelor says:

How was the sweaty armpit odor climbing up the tower? That is my biggest fear climbing narrow stairs, having to smell sweaty armpits from the masses.

Utopía says:

Are you ate in The Wetherspoons? I think I can recognize that plates hahaha. I liked so much your video and the way you are showing it. We were in Cambridge few days ago as well and we recorder a video for our channel. Would you like to watch it? Thanks and we are following you guys! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sl6c2zIQ0Ew

Bill Green says:

Sorry you weren’t feeling well. Thanks for featuring Cambridge but as Audrey said you barely scratched the surface of everything you can see here. Cambridge, to me, is the center of the Universe when it comes to modern history because of all the people who were associated with the University.

Charles Williamson says:

🙂

Cannot wait for Wales it’s such a fantastic country and the landscape and culture is totally different from England I think you will enjoy it!

The Regal? Good God. I wouldn’t even call it a pub and then the Granta? Nothing personal but you two are amongst the 6,000,000 other tourists, in a town of 80,000, we cant handle it anymore.
