Cambridge: Getting There and to the City Centre

Cambridge is definitely one of the interesting places on excursion from London. The trains to Cambridge leave King's Cross Station everyday. It was 15th June 2009 that I embarked on my journey to this university town that people like Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin had lived and created there great literature.

It took an hour less 7 minutes to commute from King's Cross Station to Cambridge. There was already a very scholarly environment when I just stepped out of Cambridge Station.

While I walked form the train station to the city centre, I saw a monument dedicated to the soldiers, probably those during the World War II.

There were many shops along the way to the city centre. Even high-end hi-fi equipment can be found here.

At the junction of Hills Road and Lensfield Road, there is this very beautiful Catholic parish Church of St. Mary and the Martyrs which was built between 1885 and 1890.

Along Hills Road, I spotted a very nice chapel inside a small lane. I think it belongs to some kind of school.

I kept walking and enjoyed the daily life of Cambridge. I saw many buildings with nice architecture along the way.

The reason I walked such a distance was to visit the Fitzwilliam Museum but it was closed! It opens from Tuesday to Sunday, but I was there on a Monday! So, I continued on to explore the other part of Cambridge.
