The Abbey Stadium, Cambridge
Cambridge United Football Club play at the recently renamed Trade Recruitment Stadium (or TRS). They are currently in the fifth flight of English football, in the Conference National (or Blue Square Premier). CUFC's glory days were about 15 years ago, at which point they nearly reached the English Premier League for its inaugural season, but since then they have unfortunately been in decline. To be honest, the last few United matches I've seen have been dire, but the fans are quite good in the Newmarket Road end. It's mainly standing, but seats are available in the Family Stand. The ground has programmes, pies and hot drinks for sale.
we rode the bikes to the orchard at grancester, can't really remember how we'd known it though, it's not that far away from cambridge, and i really really loved the scenery of the countryside, it's exactly what i always think the lovely english towns should be like, when we arrove there, all of us were really hungry, i ordered jacket potato and sprite,though they do sound strange, but it was really an unforgettable experience,though there was a little bee kept on humming around us...anyway would love to go back there again"*S*
Jim says "We make the best fudge in the world"
If you have a sweet tooth, then it is difficult to argue with the advertising. I am writing this whilst nibbling on a piece of fudge from the aforementioned shop infused with Whiskey.
At nearly four pounds for a modest sized piece, it must be considered in the same way as Caviar or Parma ham - if you want quality you will have to pay for it. Quality costs - but by God, when those taste buds start dancing you would happily pay twice the asking price. several varieties avaialble - see their website
Open top bus
Take a trip on the open top bus - costs about £8, but you can hop off and on as you please. I arrived at Cambridge by train and it is quite a long walk into the centre of town, so the bus was an ideal way of getting into (and around) the town
