Looking for a cultural trip to Cambridge but with the vast array of attractions and things to do - don't know where to start? Don't worry - we have highlighted three of the local gems and packaged up with a stay at The Royal Cambridge to start you off!
The Fitzwilliam Museum was described by the Standing Commission on Museums & Galleries in 1968 as "one of the greatest art collections of the nation and a monument of the first importance". It owes its foundation to Richard, VII Viscount Fitzwilliam of Merrion who, in 1816, bequeathed to the University of Cambridge his works of art and library, together with funds to house them, to further "the Increase of Learning and other great Objects of that Noble Foundation". 2016 is the perfect year to visit this fabulous attraction as it is celebrating its 200th year anniversary!
The Scott Polar Research Institute was founded in 1920, in Cambridge, as a memorial to Captain Robert Falcon Scott, RN, and his four companions, who died returning from the South Pole in 1912. When Scott's last words, "For God's sake look after our people" were made known to the British nation, the response was tremendous. Scott himself had emphasised the importance of science and from this plea, the Institute was born. The Institute is the oldest international centre for Polar Research within a university.
The Cambridge University Botanic Garden holds a plant collection of over 8000 plant species from all over the world to facilitate teaching and research. A master class in combining foliage, flower, structure and scent.
