Family Vacation in the U.K., 7th October 2016, Day 8: Cambridge

The drive to Cambridge was accomplished without much fanfare yesterday itself. We stayed at a place called Worth House - an expensive place to stay, as most hotels in Cambridge are expensive. However, Worth House, for which we paid over £200 for one night, was quite well-kept and worth the amount we paid, because the family room we took was well-appointed and spacious. On the morning, we were served breakfast in a large dining room by Guido and his partner Maria. 

They were a wonderful couple and they served food with a smile. Nishrin wasn't feeling too well, so we left her at the hotel, and we all went out to explore Cambridge. We decided to hire bicycles, since this is a student town that favours cyclists. We got the bikes for a sum of around £50 for the three of us for 2 hours. We went around to a lot of places. We explored the market area, and visited the famous Trinity College with its exquisitely trimmed central lawn, the giant cupola, and the petite but beautiful college hall and cathedral. Here are a few pictures we took of us and of the sights we saw:

We returned our bikes, and then walked back to the hotel. We set off for York in the afternoon, and arrived there in the late evening. We would spend the next two nights in York - and this would probably be the best part of our entire trip, as York is a lovely place to visit, as you will see in my next post. Thank you for reading this post.
