Cambridge University and the city of Cambridge are so intertwined, they are often thought of as being the same place. The university is where Newton, Darwin and Hawking, among many other scientists and dozens of Nobel Prize winners, received their higher education. The various colleges of the university were all built in different periods and, as a result, they reflect the different architectural styles common of the era in which they were built. The majority of structures are early Medieval style, with the school buildings' colonnades, staircases and walls decorated with solemn statues and seals. Taking a tour of the college grounds is an exceptional experience. While in Cambridge, visitors can take a flat-bottomed boat for a tour of the Cam River. Along the way, the beautiful scenery of King's College, Trinity College and the Queen's College Garden, will pass by, along with floating under many bridges including the Mathematical Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs.

The University of Cambridge is the city of Cambridge itself, passing through the lively open-air market next to King's College, and a variety of small shops are beginning to appear on the roadside. The most traditional industry in Cambridge is the sugar industry, so the candy store is a major feature here, and it is basically a hundred-year-old shop. Compared to the supermarket-like shelves in the city, the candy store here is more like a library, and the books of all tastes are higher than others. If you have a curious taste bud, this is probably a carnival, but if you are not lucky enough to eat an "fennel" taste, you may frown. In addition to the lively candy store, the most overcrowded at the time of check-in is a robe shop. Although you dont need to wear a robe during class in Cambridge, there are always formal occasions such as the dinner of the dean at the beginning of the school. . In addition to the robe, the store also sells a variety of equipment with various college emblems, such as cups, bags, socks, scarves, sweaters and so on. As far as I know, "Harry Potter" didn't take a scene in Cambridge, J.K. Rowling also has nothing to do with Cambridge, but what about Hogwarts? Recall that this kind of equipment is required for admission, the grand president welcomes the dinner, and the various struggles between colleges are not the Hogwarts? Even the weird tastes of the candy store are like the legendary "snake worm" in the diagonal alley. Maybe Cambridge has nothing to do with JK Rowling's creation, but as a writer who grew up in the UK, her life background and the images we read are actually the traditional British academic culture. Britain itself.

In the most literary Cambridge, the most ground-breaking market in Cambridge Market , when it comes to Cambridge, the first thing people think of is the famous Cambridge University, and Xu Zhimos swinging sleeves "Without taking a cloud," "Don't take it again," at first I was impressed by Cambridge, one after another, and a green lawn. However, in such a place where academic and literary atmosphere is strong, there is also a very grounded market, Cambridge Market. location From London, about 90 minutes to reach Cambridge Town, through one college after another, in the center of the town Find a marketplace that is very grounded like a farmer's market, Cambridge Market. Environment has a history of hundreds of years, surrounded by various shops and university accommodation areas, in the west is the Church of St. Mary, followed by the Kings College Chapel Old school and the Senate. The bazaar is built in the open air of the square. One small booth is located in the middle of the square. The connection is close. It is said that it may be someone else to believe in the market. Shopping All kinds of snacks are essential for the market. Buns, dumplings, and even pancake fruits can be found here, but not very cost-effective, others National snacks can also be purchased. In addition, clothes, toys, and small crafts are also sold, and the variety is particularly rich, and there will be summer discounts. Personally feel that this market is more than shopping itself. It is also very interesting to come here to experience the life of the Cambridge town. If you have something of particular interest, you can buy some. around Walk over the Cambridge market, next to it, next to large modern businesses, large supermarkets and clothing brands, want to buy Things can also be replenished here. Some young people who sing will sing on the street and sing well. Since coming to Cambridge, in addition to the college, you may also want to experience the unique market life of this town. Of course, our summer is also the summer of Cambridge University, and Cambridge is also dominated by small town residents and tourists.
