Cambridge boasts a whopping 11 museums all accessible within minutes from the city centre. The majority are free and well worth taking a look at if you’re visiting the area. I went to see the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and the Fitzwilliam Museum.

Transport
Getting to Cambridge from London is surprisingly easy. (Yay for the British Rail.) I took the Cambridge train from King’s Cross,  a non-stop express that took about 40 minutes, but there’s also the King’s Lynn train, it stops at five or six stations before reaching Cambridge. Round trip was £16. I walked from the train station to the centre, which took about 20-30 minutes walk (but I’m a slow walker and have short legs), though you can buy a bus pass.

Fitzbillies Restaurant & Cafe
I had a delicious late breakfast at Fitzbillies on the corner of Pembroke Street and Trumpington Road. It was impossible to resist that platter of chelsea buns in their window display. Good strategy, guys.

A repeat visit is in the plans in late October and November, where the beautiful historical architecture that houses those lucky Cambridge college students will look its most stately and gothic in the cold…right?

    Great pictures! That’s the first time I’ve seen “Yay for the British Rail” in a long time… maybe the only time?!

      Hahaha! Overground rail transportation is a novelty for me, I’m used to the metro and buses. :)
