Let Citystay enhance your holiday or business trip to Cambridge

Cambridge is a perfect blend of old and new. Primarily a University City, dating back to the 11th Century, a stroll down “the backs” (of the colleges) can place you within its living history as traditional sights of punts, cyclists, students and fellows blend seamlessly with the magnificent range of architecture. Let yourself be immersed in the romance as you continue into the centre, the site of the traditional daily market place and a mêlée of unique individual shops. Galleries,  roadside cafes, book shops and boutique restaurants lead you to the brand new Grand Arcade shopping centre that boasts 21st century shopping.

Kings Chapel

Cambridge and the surrounding area hold an unrivalled reputation for being a centre of excellence both in learning and ambience. Now its famous Colleges are home to over 17,000 students – Kings College Chapel is a familiar image all over the world. Cambridge’s heritage also includes an outstanding record of scientific and artistic achievements – Newton, Darwin, Wordsworth, Milton, Ian McKellan, John Cleese, Emma Thompson and Zadie Smith were all educated here.

As well as a seat of learning and home to many a famous researcher (such as Crick and Watson, Stephen Hawking, and even Sir Isaac Newton), Cambridge is also increasingly known as a centre of pioneering information technology with leading companies such as Microsoft, AstraZeneca and Philips represented.  To enhance your visit, Citystay offer handpicked business and holiday let accommodation, luxury with the personal touch.

Grand Arcade Shopping

As well as being one of the worlds leading cities for technological and scientific research, Cambridge is also an extremely green City. The City boasts a number of delightfully manicured public parks and several phenomenal university botanic gardens. On summer’s days, hundreds of people can be found relaxing on one of the many greens, playing sports, enjoying barbecues or watching the punts drift by on the Cam. All the greenery provides ideal escapism in the heart of the city.

The famous Parker’s Piece in the centre of Cambridge hosts regular festivals, events and attractions throughout the year and was interestingly the site of the first ever game of association football. Cambridge truly has something to offer everyone.
