I'm biased as i live there, but Cambridge is a stunning city. Approx. 1hr from London its famous university is the jewel in the crown offering stunning architecture and heaps of history.
- La Raza, offering great live music in a cosy setting with "the ninja's" cocktail making skills dazzle you.
- The Corn exchange, great live music, shows and comedy in a gorgeous venue just off the market
- B Bar - a multi floor bar, with an intimate atmosphere for a popular venue.
- Henries, great location by the river. If its warm, consider a pint outside or sit by one of the windows and watch the world go by.
- Terriaki - Great for fans of Japanese food.
- The Eagle - Traditional pub fare. The British and American pilots used to drink here during WWII. The ceiling still bears their legacy.
- Consider a ruby murray (Curry) from one of the many indians along Regent street.
- Rainbow cafe, a hidden gem, which is family run and serves delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes at great prices
- Admire the largest fan vault in world at Kings College cathedral. Stunning surrounding and gorgeous stained glass windows.
- University grounds. 800 years old with stunning old buildings and beautiful gardens.
- River tours - Punt yourself down the river through stunning views or take a guided tour. Just be careful not to fall in as I did 😊
- Fitzwilliam museum, which has been described as the finest small museum in Europe
Elsewhere in the UK I would also take some time to visit, Norwich (Castles and relaxed charm), Bath (Gorgeous city), Oxford (Similar to Cambridge only not so good 😉 Newcastle is also a great city, maybe not the prettiest, but the locals are great fun and very friendly.
