    Hitting the grades in Cambridge

    Cambridge is a chocolate box of treats for those interested in sightseeing and English heritage. Turn one corner and you're greeted with a filigreed Gothic spire. Turn another and you'll find a centuries-old church adorned with grand clocks and gargoyles. Turn another and there's a babbling waterway, a leafy park and a thatched-roof cottage. But that's only half the story. This erudite town is also a hub of learning. Cambridge holiday rentals sit amidst the green meadows of the revered colleges, meaning you can rub shoulders with the professors and the students alike.

    Bucolic enjoyments in Cambridge

    Leafy and green, Cambridge lends itself to peaceful pursuits. Punting on a boat along the River Cam is a great way to reveal the handsome faces of The Backs – the pretty exterior facades of the town's countless colleges. Watch out for days when there's a famous Bumps rowing race unfolding on the waters, though – it's probably better to stick with spectating for those. And if you'd prefer to stay on dry land? How about an mp3-guided tour of the ancient city centre, revealing churches and chapels and historic pubs?

    Hitting the grades in Cambridge

    Cambridge is a fine place to go in search of your inner student. With A-grade undergrads and world-famous professors wandering between the meadows and lecture halls, it should hardly come as a surprise that there are plenty of places to do a little learning. Start at the Fitzwilliam Museum, where Roman busts mingle with mysterious Egyptian trinkets and masterworks by the likes of Cezanne. For more mind-boggling relics, the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology is a must. That's got African tribal art and primeval tools recovered from as far afield as the Olduvai Gorge of Tanzania.

    Cambridge is never dull

    Don't be put off a trip to Cambridge because of the weather. It's true that the summers offer the best opportunity to hit the River Cam by boat and the best rowing races take place in June and July, but that's certainly not the only time of year to visit this enthralling city. Winter, which runs from November to March, can also be enchanting. Crisp, clear days and the occasional dousing of snow only add character to the Gothic edifices and churches. Spring – in April and May – means blooming flowers in the meadows and some bargains on Cambridge holiday rentals.

    Cambridge takes leafy to new heights

    Cambridge is one seriously leafy city. It's got sprawl but it's almost impossible to decipher where the parks and meadows end and the suburban pockets begin. That's thanks largely to the green spaces that clutch the edge of the River Cam as it winds through the middle of the town. You can seek out Cambridge holiday rentals close to that to ensure a pretty morning view. For something a little wilder, you can leave the town and go north. That's where England's rolling Fenlands take over in a patchwork of farms and marshy wetlands.
