We are a family of 5 (2 adults, and 3 kids of 17, 14 and 11) and we will be visiting England in a couple of weeks time. We will be staying in Harlow between London and Cambridge. Obviously we will be visting London a couple of days, but we would like to spend 1 day in Cambridge as well.
The question is : should we be concentrating on Cambridge all day or is it possible to visit Ely OR Bury St Edmunds in the morning and then go to Cambridge ? We could be in Ely or bury St Edmunds (which would be better ??) at about 9.30, do a walk of about 2-2.5 hours, have lunch and go to Cambridge (park and ride). I guess we could be in the city centre at about 2pm and we would be able to stay until after diner and leave at about 9 or 10 pm.
Our aim is to just walk around and perhaps go inside a college, but mainly wander around and get the feel of the city. Which option would you suggest ?
Thanks for a reply !
