Although I’ve been based in London UK for years, I don’t really know many places in the south of England. Before today, I’d never visited Cambridge. A couple of friends and I travelled along the North Circular and up the M11 this morning, arriving in Cambridge shortly after eleven o’clock.
I thought it was an interesting city – some great architecture, but a bit too touristy and crowded for me. (I prefer rural villages and quiet pubs.) We visited a number of the university colleges, including the famous King’s College (see above photo), and enjoyed lunch in a crowded pub.
A fascinating day out. My own degree training in music took place at Dartington College of Arts, Totnes, Devon, which is so completely different from Cambridge. More rural and “alternative”.
