Couple and teenage son looking for accomodations July 7-12

by farmhouse41

Hi, we're an American family of musicians (keyboard, voice) coming to Cambridge after playing silent film music in Bologna and looking for an inexpensive place to stay, or a famiy we could stay with and make some music! We know tons of show tunes, folk songs, and perform all over the US for silent films, you will be well entertained...

We love the UK haven't been in 10 years, are tightening our belts with the ridiculous dollar exchange (lucky you! come visit!) and hope we can make some new friends this time around.

Thanks so much

Sorry I leave a bit far from Cambridge (I'm a Yank and know CT well), but take a look at www.smoothhound.co.uk. That website has lots of inexpensive B&Bs or hotels listed and I'm sure you could find something fairly decent in or near Cambridge.

What about the YHA accommodation? This looks like a nice friendly place to stay - have a look athttp://www.yha.org.uk/find-accommodation/east-of-england/hostels/cambridge/index.aspx

I've been in Cambridge a couple of times and have had a hard time finding inexpensive places to stay. The youth hostel is very good, you'd have to book now. My children stayed there, but they had booked in early spring for summer.From my experience it's usually fully booked in summer.
Last summer we found Warkworth House, a B&B which - for Cambridge - is very reasonable. We paid £ 70 for a double, including a wonderful breakfast. Still a lot of money, but well worth it, especially as the location is great, close to the city centre.

Travel Tips for Cambridge

Training for the boat race Perhaps??

by nhcram

The sunday we were in Cambridge they unfortunately lost the boat race to rivals Oxford.
The first ever boat race was on 12 March 1829. It was the idea of two friends one a Cambridge student and the other an Oxford student (William Wordsworth's nephew) Cambridge lost that day as they did this year!
Along the river are the boat houses for the boats and they all have their own style and you can see many rowers training on the river - Looks like hard work to me.

Christ's College

by CandS

Christ's College was the first college we came across while walking around in Cambridge...it's a smaller college than most but the grounds and buildings are very beautiful. It's worth having a look at if you can...

Ely is really the best excursion from Cambridge!

by Confucius

I highly recommend an excursion to Ely, especially on a Saturday when the town's market comes to life. The main highlight of Ely is its cathedral, which soars over the fens with wonderful views from the roof. There aren't many cathedrals in England that let you climb onto the rooftop, so don't think that this is just an ordinary church. The cathedral has other distinguishing traits, which you can see on my Ely page.
By the way, the town's name really does rhyme with the word "really" and not "rely" so try to remember this tip when you go there. It was once famous for eel cultivation, but nowadays there are few restaurants in Ely that still serves the local delicacy.
Other highlights of Ely include the local museum and a large antiques warehouse. If you like shopping for antiques in England then you MUST go to Ely and visit the three level building with over 70 dealers showcasing all kinds of interesting items. The Saturday farmer's market in the town square has vegetables, plants, handicrafts, antiques, and lots of homemade baked goods. I even saw one stall cooking fresh ostrich burgers!
You can get to Ely by bus from the Drummer Street station or by train from Cambridge Railway Station. I suggest taking the coach as it drops you off at the bus stop near the center of town on Market Street. (The Ely train station is just outside the town's perimeter.)

Jesus College

by barryg23

Jesus College's location away from the centre of town ensures it receives less visitors than Cambridge's better known, centrally located Colleges. However, it is well worth seeing - especially for the horse statue in the Front Quad. If anyone knows why this horse is there or what it symbolises please tell me! Have a look at my Jesus travelogue for more pictures.

City Centre supermarket

by jrs1234 about Sainsbury's

If for any reason you're self-catering in Cambridge, or you just need a snack, then it's worth dropping into Sainsbury's. Prices are often much keener than many of the other city centre food and grocery sellers, and they have a good range of take-away food, with a wide range of sandwiches, drinks, a salad bar, and take-away coffee is cheaper than elsewhere in town.

As well as food and drink there is a good range of newspapers and magazines, and chart CDs at bargain prices.
