    Monday - A Cambridge Walk

    July 2, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    We started our first day with breakfast at the Buttery Dining room. Quite a good spread of hot and cold choices.
    Our exploration of Cambridge BEGAN with a guided tour. We managed to get into a small group of only 7 and our guide Manuel was able to give us a good introduction into the history of the University.
    The highlight was a visit to Kings College Chapel. The fan vaulting and large stained glass windows are quite awe inspiring.
    After the walk we took our M&S lunch down to the edge of the Cam and sat on the grass watching the punters on the river.
    Later we had dinner at the Eagle Pub. This was the hangout of Watson and Crick, the discoverers of DNA.
