- Cambridge is a town-sized city easy to navigate on foot or bike and students and tourists throng its streets.
- The city has also become the centre of the hi-tech 'Silicon Fen' industries. The atmosphere is electric and there is no shortage of open, green spaces in this bustling, beautiful city. Town-gown relations are generally good.
- Walking and cycling are the most popular modes of transport as much of the city is flat and easily accessible.
- Buses are fairly reliable, but expensive. However, travel cards are available.
- Cars are not recommended in the centre as most areas are pedestrianised.
- London is 60 miles away, and trains take about an hour. London Stansted International Airport is 30 minutes away by train and Cambridge Airport is situated a short journey from the city centre.
Culture and Nightlife
- The Cambridge Corn Exchange is the largest arts and entertainment venue and hosts a full range of events. The Junction is popular for bands, dance and experimental theatre whilst the ADC Theatre is owned by a student society and managed by the university.
- The Arts Picturehouse shows foreign and cult classics and hosts the two-week Cambridge Film Festival in July. Cambridge has a good array of pubs but few clubs.
- The Strawberry Fair is held each June, and the Cambridge Folk Festival at the end of July.
- The Fitzwilliam Museum offers free admission to its exhibitions of paintings and ceramics. Kettles Yard Gallery is very popular with those who enjoy modern art and sculpture.
- An excellent way to see the sights of Cambridge is to hire a punt, rowing boat or canoe and travel along the Backs at a leisurely pace or to go upriver to Grantchester.
- There are also Official Daily Walking Tours of the City and Colleges from the Tourist Information Centre, on Peas Hill.
