Highlights: The Round Church, Cambridge University
We undertook a total of three walking tours as per our Lonely Planet guidebook for a total of 7 hours, taking in picturesque town and historic buildings.
We completed our visits of Cambridge University Colleges with Christ’s, Jesus and Magdalene Colleges. Like yesterday’s Colleges they were all founded between 1300-1600 and have impressive buildings and chapels which I hope the photos I took do justice to.
Outside the Colleges of interest was the Round Church, founded in 1130 in which services have been held consistently and it is actually round!
At 3.06 pm we caught the train to Lincoln. I was amazed at how much we had seen in one and half days. This will be the pace of the rest of the trip, very quick visits and moving on. Will probably be exhausted by the end!
