There are no left luggage facilities at Cambridge train station , but the bike store nearby provides this service. very convenient, when you have a train out of Cambridge and want to walk around the town a bit , without carrying all your bags.
It's £ 4 a bag, no screening. Step out of the station and turn right, cross the parking lot and you see the large building. The entrance is down the parking lot.
The River Cam for much of the year is busy with punts and punters.It's possible to hire one of the boats from various points located along the riverside in the city centre.The punts can take six people.A very pleasant time can be spent in the afternoon punting under the bridges taking in the views of the college and green areas along the Backs.
Just look out for noisy boatfulls of Italian and Spanish teenagers with their nervous looking English teachers trying to hide among them.
visit the wonderful Cathedral of Ely
If you go to Cambridge and you have the time, then a visit to Ely for its Cathedral, is worth the journey.
Ely is in Fenland and if you do not know that much about it, I would recommend you to read Graham Swift's "Waterland" which story is set on the area.
The Cathedral is even more impressive when ou think it is surrounded by flat land. You can see it from miles away.
Buy ONLY postcards in the souvenir shops!
There are a few shops scattered around the central of the town offering tourist information and souvenirs of Cambridge. If you are going to London while visiting Cambridge too, then DON'T buy souvenirs such as T-shirts and jumpers in Cambridge's souvenir shops! You can find the same ones and even more choices in the numerous souvenir shops (the cheaper ones are those run by the Indians) in Oxford Circus, London. It might be a good idea to get postcards in the Cambridge souvenir shops though as those in London might not offer as many choices for specifically Cambridge postcards.
A centrally-located multiplex cinema
For the latest Hollywood blockbusters, and other mainstream movies, head over to the Grafton Centre, where you'll find the Vue multiplex cinema (formerly the Warner-Village). It's got 8 screens, so you'll have a good choice of films - although popular films often sell out on their first weekend - get your ticket in advance for these.
