Destination

Cambridge

Cambridge enjoys an almost unparalleled reputation (except for maybe its rival, Oxford) for its high-calibre university, producing the likes of Sir Isaac Newton, Bertrand Russell, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, and the history and traditions that have accompanied it through time. Student town, cosmopolitan, dynamic, ancient, Cambridge is full of things to do and see, making it a hot destination for young people learning English.

Climb to the top of Great St. Mary's cathedral for a spectacular view of the town from above. Go rowing, or for an even more typical Cambridge experience, give punting on the Cam a try. Students can take walks through "the Backs", going down peaceful meadows to the river's edge and providing picturesque views of the colleges. In the heart of East Anglia, Cambridge itself is well-situated and easily accessible by train, bus, car, and air plane, making it easy to travel around England (and maybe even sneaking a trip over to Oxford, just for comparison).
