A Day Trip To Cambridge

It’s been a month now since I took a trip to Cambridge for my birthday yet it seems like only yesterday. We picked the perfect day to visit with the Spring sun shining down on us. Cambridge wasn’t busy which was lovely to not have to battle crowds of people.



I would have loved a trip down the river but I was realistic in that with my rheumatoid arthritis there was no chance of my being able to get back up out of the boat. I think I would have been able to get in to the boat but there was no chance of me being able to get out as the seats were low and nothing to hold on to. I just wish that my friends had gone as they so wanted to but were too kind and said if I wasn’t going they weren’t. As much as I appreciate this kind gesture I really hate how my illness impacts on others.



Everywhere we went there were bikes. Just propped up against railings, walls you name it. None of them chained up. It’s lovely to see such trust and see that your property won’t be taken either.


The sun just shined down on us and the gorgeous architecture. This round church was such a stunning sight.

The courtyards of the different colleges were stunning. Everywhere you looked had such history. Unlike many places the streets were litter free, no graffiti and everywhere was just so pristine.


Trees were starting to bloom and everywhere looked so tranquil in the spring sun.



Everywhere we looked stunning architecture that has stood here for hundreds of years.



All lite up by the glorious spring sun.

This was my first trip to Cambridge and it is certainly somewhere I’d like to return to. Have you visited Cambridge?

    I’m ashamed to say that despite living so close to Cambridge, I have only ever visited for the shopping. It’s so beautiful I really need to have a day sight-seeing instead! Beautiful pictures xx

    I had no idea Cambridge was so beautiful. It definitely has some unique architecture!

    Cambridge is my city and spent almost all my life their until I moved to Oxford (the traitorous I know). The river is my favourite part.

    What an absolutely beautiful place! I only live around an hour away, and I have never visited. Time to rectify that I think!

    I’m obliged to hate Cambridge because it’s a rival of my university but I will concede that it is really rather pretty ;p Looks like you had some great weather!

    Oh, lovely, I was not aware you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, I have a friend who has it and she is so very brave about it, just like you.
    We have never been to Cambridge, I read your post secretly wishing that Emma would go there as a student so we can visit loads . Beautiful photos and place!
