Oozing history and tradition at every turn, Cambridge is one of the most pleasant and beautiful cities in the United Kingdom. The cityscape is dominated by the university, its 31 colleges and their extensive green gardens, or 'Backs', spread throughout the city. Throngs of students making their way to class or lounging by the banks of the River Cam, books in hand, as punters lazily float by, enhance the academic feeling of this centuries-old centre of scholarship, along with many fascinating museums and numerous fairs and cultural events.
