5 Hours in Cambridge

One of my close friends who I've made at uni is from Cambridge, and last weekend asked me if I wanted to join him to visit his home town.  I, of course, said yes as I want to see as much of the UK as I possibly can.  The plan was to leave early in the morning, drive the hour or so there, and spend most of the day there before heading back around eight-ish.  Being uni students who like to stay up too late, we both over slept and didn't arrive to Cambridge until nearly 1:00.  Once we got there, however, I was overcome with just how beautiful the city is.  Every street is filled with historic buildings and lots of green spaces.  It was also the end of wisteria season, so there were lots of gorgeous flowers seen, too.  We began our day at the Fitzwilliam Museum, where we were there for a lot longer than we anticipated.  Their collections were a lot bigger than I was expected, and they had everything from Ancient Greece and Rome to Dutch still life paintings.  The best part, though?  It was completely free!  If you're someone who likes museums, and you find yourself in Cambridge, I would highly recommend stopping there.  After viewing all of their collections and exhibitions, we had a quick stop at their cafe where we split some cake.  We then walked around the city where we were able to see bits and pieces of the university.  Unfortunately we were in the city during the exam period, so most of the university, which is normally open to visitors, was closed off to just students so they could have a quiet place to study.  Finally, we found ourselves in a market with lots of food, drinks, and vintage items, before my friend received a message from his sister saying that we could stop by and meet her new puppy.  Anyone who knows me knows that I lover puppers, especially if said pupper is a pug.  I couldn't resist the invitation, so that's where we finished our day.

I honestly can't wait to go back to Cambridge.  Being there for only five hours wasn't at all enough time.  My tip?

Don't oversleep.
Get there early.

You need as much time as you possibly can so you can try and see everything.
