Never overlook the jewel on your own doorstep and Cambridge is certainly one. Architecturally splendid, compact and with much to see and do, today's visit included an open top, hop on - hop off bus tour. There was also an obligatory punt on the Cam, something as obligatory as a chauffeured gondola ride in Venice - though I've never done it. Despite being there twice.
One day isn't enough time to see Cambridge as there is plenty more to do other than see the medieval buildings in the city centre and the colleges of the world famous university. A tourist follow up is definitely in the offing though perhaps this can wait till summer '09.
