A lot of history, so beauty, great atmosphere! The old buildings, Bridge of Sigh, the nature - all is amazing! The sense of St.John's College is magical. You must go there!

St. John's College is known for the bridge of sigh. I like the artecture of it. However, you can't go through it unless you belong to the college. The best way to see the Bridge of Sigh is to hire a punt and cruise through the River Cam.

Attending evensong was so special, it is so unlike anything we have at home, the music and choir was stunning and the sermon was very interesting. The sense of history and of age makes a huge impression.
