Cambridge is a small but architecturally beautiful city which grew up as an inland port on the River Cam. The fine mix of colleges, churches, shops, parks and gardens have made it a popular place to visit.

Founded in 1209, the University of Cambridge has 31 colleges distributed throughout the city. King's College is one of the grandest and is the starting point for most visitors to the city.

We are currently into the beta testing of the website and still have some way to go before the structure of the site is complete. We welcome your help to point out any errors or broken links during this testing stage.
