The 'round' church or Church of the Holy Sepulchre tpo give it it's scary religious name. I've seen a plethora of churches on my travels of various shapes and sizes but never a round one. Not by any means my fondest memory of Cambridge but worth a photo!
Things to Leave Behind ... And NOT!!!
Pack up your troubles and leave them behind. You objective is ... to Have Fun! Whatever your idea of fun is, just do it!
Leave enough space in your luggage to bring home treasures of your memorable experience.
Check on the baggage weight limit for your flight. By no means go overboard, it is a costly mistake. (Unless, of course, money doesn't matter to you).The "penalty" charges are nearly out of this World! Depending on your length of stay, bring enough clean clothes to last the entire visit.
Reminder, See above tip: Laundry is NOT fun! :-)
COMFORTABLE shoes, are A MUST!
Note: Walking in Cambridge IS fun! :-)
Deciding what types of clothes to pack depends entirely on the time of year you are traveling ... Check the weather forecast before you leave home. After all, you ARE on the Internet! A tiny fold up umbrella (brolly) is always useful, and not much bother. Mine fits inside my purse, even!
For your convenience, I have included a link to the 5 day forecast in Cambridge. There is an option to view in Fahrenheit degrees also, as many Americans do not know Celsius.
Cambridge Weather If you are on medication, then surely you wouldn't leave home without it! If you fancy your own toiletries, then pack 'em. If you forget a few items, well, buy 'em. Please don't forget your toothbrush and toothpaste, at least, although these items are readily available in Cambridge. A nice 6.0 or better, digital camera would be ideal, (dreaming a bit) but A CAMERA is a MUST!!! Even if it is a disposable one, it is something you simply can not live without whilst in Cambridge.Trust me, you will be glad you did. Photo opportunities are endless! Well, if it is an outdoor adventure you are planning, then do bring the necessary gear along, or buy disposable items, if you prefer. Just don't start any forest fires trying to make a cup of coffee, if you are out in the English countryside camping. Another MUST, Bring Enough Money!!! (Or rather, have access to your cash) ATM (cash machines) are everywhere, so only carry the amount you will need for a few days at a time. If using a credit card, be sure you set it up to require a PIN # for purchases, in case lost or stolen.
Also, always carry some coins, because you may NEED them, but mostly to impress the shop attendants with your ability to count foreign currency. ;-)
Also bring a prepaid phone card in case you need to use the telephone. (Hint for Americans: DO NOT say, "I have a calling card." It means something ENTIRELY different!)
Most importantly, bring a smile along to brighten someone's day. Relax, and take time to enjoy yourself. Create some pleasant memories, that will last a lifetime, to take back home with you.
One last thing to remember... If something doesn't go quite as planned, do not allow yourself to be upset. Instead...
Laugh at yourself, if only to amuse others. You are only human, after all. :-)

They’re pretty high tech nowadays with screens showing the latest bus arrivals, and their expected time of departure.
Sounds to us like they’ve been spending a few of their lunch hours milling around the railway station.
