The best way to view the famous backs of the colleges. A trip on a punt along the river Cam is entertaining, interesting and enjoyable way to see 'The Backs'. Either chauffeured or... even better punt yourself; most people get the hang of it after a few practise manoeuvres!

Cambridge has plenty of good pubs and beer. The Pint Shop generally has the most impressive beers, across 23 lines, and is situated in the centre, just off the Market (Brewdog will soon be opening a few doors down). The two main areas by the river are also well served – from Quayside, where the Punt Yard bar recently opened, the Maypole is only a couple of minutes away, tucked behind Bridge Street and the Park Street car park, and has a great selection, probably the largest beer selection in Cambridge, while the Mill overlooks the other end of the river and mill pond by Silver Street – probably the best place to take a beer outside in good weather. Take a look at the Cambridge Pub Guide for more places to visit for a good pint in a traditional british pub...

The Stove Cafe is a smashing local favourite for breakfast, lunch and afternoon cake! (sorry, but not open on Sundays) To get there from the accommodation there's either a lovely 10/15 minute walk along a green lane and through a meadow or just a few minutes drive. Also, while you're there, pop into the a local traditional butchers & deli; their home made pies, pasties, quiches and sausage rolls, all freshly baked on the farm, are scrumptious.
