Cambridge, England, United Kingdom
To the world, Cambridge is known for its university, regarded as one of the oldest and the best in the world. Dated back to the 13th century, University of Cambridge consist of several colleges, with breathtaking ancient architectures scattered mostly around the city centre area.
King's College is one of the most popular college attractions, while the gate of Trinity College displays the apple tree in which Issac Newton discovered his theory of gravity. Few minutes walk from King's College and you'll find 'The Eagle', a pub in which the structure of DNA was discovered by Francis Crick and James Watson in 1953. Not far from there, in Silver Street, you'll find the starting point for punting (a Gondola-like boat, a must-try experience) where you will stroke along the river Cam, passing the gorgeous medieval scenery and the many historical bridges, including the mathematical bridge in Queen's college that mark the city's name of Cam-Bridge.
Cambridge is also known for it's diversity. The numerous language schools, boarding schools, other universities and colleges makes it a very international student city. Bring a ball to Parker's Piece (one of the biggest and busiest parks, where legends has it that it's the place where football was invented) and few minutes later several people from different nationalities will introduce themselves and ask for a game of football (soccer). Visit the night clubs around the city centre area, and various world-themes will colour the night away. And there's always enough museums and activities to fulfill everybody's interests.
Youth hostels mostly scattered near the train station, while every 30 minutes (if I'm not mistaken) a public bus can take you to the city centre area from there. Alternatively, you can just walk to the city centre since It'll take only around 15-20 minutes to walk. Or if you really want to get the feel of the city, try to rent a bike... for me it's the best way to enjoy the city.
