One of our favourite destinations in the United Kingdom, the city of Cambridge is surprisingly vibrant for a bastion of academia.

Sitting on the banks of the River Cam in eastern England, the city is probably best known for its prestigious university that dates to 1209.

But there’s a lot more to the heart of Cambridgeshire than just the stately old university with its Kings College chapel and the closely associated high technology industries that gained international significance.

Today, we feature a selection of stunning Cambridge scenes:
