    Good Location for Using Park & Ride

    by

    We enjoyed a one-night stay here. The staff is young, pleasant and very efficient, and that includes check-in and the dining room. Being just a five minute drive from one of Cambridge's Park & Ride locations made this spot a really good location for us. The room was exceptionally clean, including the bathroom. For a 'budget' hotel, one couldn't do much better. The dining room served better than average food.

    Directions: Near the M11

Which bridge is the original Cam bridge?

by Stroller

Please bear with me if this sounds horribly naive. I just came back from Cambridge for a short meeting but did not have time to ask the locals this question. All the small bridges along Cam are so uniquely beautiful, but I still want to know which is the original bridge if there is one. In other words, was Cambridge named after a particular bridge? Thanks.

RE: Which bridge is the original Cam bridge?

by qaminari

The original bridge would have dated from the 7th century, when Cambridge was called something like Granta-bridge (the original name for the Cam river being Granta). None of those there now are that old! The Clare College bridge is the oldest, dating from the 17th century: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_bridges_in_Cambridge

RE: RE: Which bridge is the original Cam bridge?

by leics

There was probably a bridge of sorts over the Granta/Cam long before the 8th century (the first documented one dates from then).....the Romans were there, up by the castle, and they were good at bridges. The town functioned as a port at the time.

The town was orginally called 'Grentebrigge' or 'Cantebrigge', so one can see how the name might have been corrupted over the centuries.

Thanks very much for your replies. Sounds like the original bridge doesn't exist anymore and we don't have to worry about it :^)

Travel Tips for Cambridge

St John's College

by CandS

We came across St John's College while punting...our guide told us that some of the Harry Potter movie/s were filmed there...since I don't watch those movies I have no idea but it looks like a great setting for a movie like that anyway. ;)

Proper or American English? There IS a Difference!

by Elena_007

Are you aware that there are considerable differences in "Proper English" and "American English?"

I have spent countless hours compiling a "dictionary" of our English language(s) for your information and amusement.

Here are a few excerpts:

natter: to have a natter is a chat similar to gossip. Although men tend to think only women natter or gossip, and men engage in conversations, I beg to differ. :-)

pavement: UK- (What Americans call the sidewalk)
pavement: USA-(What Brits call Tarmac)

(Confusing because Americans think of Pavement as the Tarmac, NOT the sidewalk!)

loo:the restroom, bathroom, ladie's / men's room, etc. In England, it is also known as the WC (And you will notice motorway signs and wonder possibly... WC?) It is a water closet! (funny to this American! LOL) ;-) Please see the following for a detailed explanation of the reasons for the name "loo." (And a good laugh!)

fag: cigarette (See the following website for a hilarious explanation)

(Links to website are located on my London Local Customs Tips page) :-)

Another example of the differences in our culture ...

Let's just suppose you are an American who walks into an English pub. You overhear some Englishmen talking amongst themselves. One says, " Gray, mate, check out those birds over there!"

Naturally, you look out the window thinking perhaps there is a blue tit out there. (A bird!) ;-)

Eventually, you find out, "Gray" is a shortened version of Graham, and a bird is actually a woman! (LOL)

Please do visit my London Local Customs tips to find out for yourself just how different "English" can be across the pond.

I have included a link for your convenience.

At the Cambridge Union: stonking debates

by MarkBow

Hidden away bhind the Round Church in Cambridge is the Cambridge Union. Primarily the world famous debate society they also host a top speakers from Hollywood stars to famous artists and musicians and have an entertainment programme for students.

If you are nice to the staff you can often get in to one of the events. I saw 'This House Would Pay More Tax to Improve Public Services' with the Shadow Chancellor, Michael Howard, John Redwood, Austin Mitchell, Paul Boateng and a number of think-tank impresarios and it was absoluetly FANTASTIC. The President was Ed Cummings and was a really nice and witty guy: other speakers they'd got around that time was Bruce Forsyth, Chris Eubank, Louis de Bernieeres, Richard Wilson, Carole Caplin and even French Presidential candidate Jean-Marie Le Pen!! All in a few weeks!!

Full of history (founded in 1815 - older than the Oxfrod Union) and fascinating ideas and debates - a breeding ground for the next generation of movers and shakers!

Sunday Sales

by grayfo about Cambridge Market

The market lies in the centre of the city where locals have traded for at least 700 years. Eery Sunday you can find an interesting mix of Arts, Crafts, Antiques, Speciality Stalls and Food Producers, the Market opens from 10am- 4pm

by steventilly

There are literally dozens of really good pubs in Cambridge. It's a case of take your pick. My personal favourites are, for starters:

The Mill
A Tap and Spile pub, so as such you can expect a great range of regularly changing beers. On a nice hot day you can take your beer outside onto the rather impromptu beer garden (otherwise known as The Bridge!!) and drink it while you watch first-time punters trying not to fall in.

Once while we were here, Stephen Hawking rolled by - we were just awestruck. I'd actually seen someone who's been on Star Trek! Anything. It's just a pub!
