With historic grandeur in the city and incredible countryside on the doorstep, Cambridge car rental is a super investment…

The Fitzwilliam Museum features an excellent collection of art and antiquities. Alternatively, Kettles Yard Gallery displays modern and contemporary art in a stunning setting.
An array of festivals gives Cambridge a kick of revelry throughout the year.

During September, the film festival coincides with a new intake at the university, which makes it a great time to feel the buzz of Oxbridge student life. Over Christmas, King's College has its Festival of the Annual Nine Lessons and Carols. Other annual highlights include the Secret Garden Festival and the Big Weekend, both in July.
Cambridge also has excellent shopping in its city centre, as well as many places to eat, drink and stay.
