Cambridge is a beautiful city that I've come to know really well, Here are seven of my favourite places.

Arena Café on Burleigh Street

The most amazing hot chocolate and great looking cakes.

Bella Italia

This is where I would move in, if I could move into a restaurant.

Parker's Piece

This is a shot of the view at night from my first year. This is only a stone’s throw from campus and a great place to hang out in summer – and it is home to a fair at Christmas and in summer.

Grand Arcade

Brilliant shopping and stunning Christmas decorations.

Free books

The free book stand opposite Romsey Recreational Ground is so cute and sums up Cambridge perfectly as a student-friendly city.
