Cambridge University is one of the oldest learning centres in Europe having its first college founded in 1284. It is one of the most prestigious. It is consistently ranked among the top universities in the world. The most important of these is King’s College Chapel, known by Henry James as ” the most beautiful and attraction chapel in England.” It was founded in 1441. It is the best example of a country known for its perpendicularity to the Gothic English style.
In the 17 century, Ruben’s magic charm hung behind the main altar. It is also softly lit by massive stained glass windows made in the 16th century. Nine carols and nine lessons, sung by a student choir that has been a tradition since 1918, are held here every Christmas. If you go there on Christmas day, you can attend it. In the spring and summer, you can enjoy a classic view from behind the church. That is the view of the beautiful river, known as “cam”, floating along the shore in a boat with a wooden flat bottom, slowly paddling with a stick an unavoidable.
Also remember to visit the Fitzwilliam Museum, one of the oldest and best public art museums in the UK. As a collection centre for Dutch art around the 17th century, it was rich in masterpieces from Titian and Michelangelo to french artists. It entices you to wander the narrow lanes of the city, which is lined with cluttered bookstores, historic inns and bars. Then you can go to the nearby Hotel Du Vin, a modern accommodation option in a medieval old university building, for retirement. Or you can leave the city and stay at the Victorian Mansi Felix Hotel, about a mile from downtown, enjoying luxury rooms and a great restaurant.
