Cambridge is a city of some 125,000 people, located in the county of Cambridgeshire in the East Anglian region of England. Less than an hour away from London (50 miles, or 80 km), Cambridge is a small but diverse and vibrant city that has something to offer everyone.

Urbs in rure

The city centre is a mixture of historic and modern buildings, with quiet cobbled lanes and busy thoroughfares. There are also large, open public spaces, such as Parker's Piece, Midsummer Common and Lammas Land, many with free grazing cattle, bringing the countryside into the very heart of the city.
