Cambridge is a famous university town and a logical place to begin a visit here is at King’s College, which is a beautiful building and home to a renowned choir. Adjacent is Gonville and Gaius College, whose three fancy gates are supposed to represent different stages on the path to academic enlightenment. The Gate of Honor leads to another college, Clare College, one of seven colleges founded by women. Its plain courtyard leads to one of the most picturesque bridges over the Cam, known simple as Clare Bridge. Beyond that is Fellows’ Garden, one of the loveliest college gardens open to the public. The largest of the Cambridge colleges is Trinity College, founded in 1546 by Henry VIII. The 15th century clock tower in the college’s Great Court was made famous by the film Chariots of Fire. In Nevile’s Court is where Newton first calculated the speed of sound. At Queen’s College you can view the Mathematical Bridge, a copy of the mid-18th century original which, it is rumored, would stay in place even if all the nuts and bolts were removed. The best museum in Cambridge is Fitzwilliam Museum, containing a huge collection of classical antiquities and European paintings.
