After breakfast, it is time to visit the nation's acclaimed educational institution: Cambridge University. In addition to a strong academic atmosphere, Cambridge is where many luminaries started their dreams and hopes for the future with the sight of the pastoral landscapes, picturesque rivers and architecture. The University of Cambridge, a majestic old group of buildings including King's College and Queens College, set among the most rural of bridges. When come to Cambridge, sincerely recommend a trip to Cambridge Penny, which is carried by a boat with a long pole (part-time job of many college students) to carry people up the river Cambridge. Buying a sweater, postcard or magnet with the Cambridge school badge or the Cambridge University logo is also a favorite souvenir for many people.
