My wife and I were staying in Canterbury and decided to take a side trip to Cambridge, not sure what to expect. It was well worth it. It's only an hour train ride from London, so great for a one-day excursion. Take the official City guided tour from the Tourist Information office; you get to enter some of the colleges. The "chapel" at King's college is a must see; it's bigger than many churches or cathedrals in Europe. Attend the boys' choir if your can.

As for punting on the river, I would avoid the guided tours; the one we went on was short and uninteresting. We couldn't understand the guide. If you are able, try renting a boat and go yourself. You can spend as much time as you like.

We had dinner at a really nice pub named the Mitre. Pub food, but very good and big portions.

Thanks for the review. Planning to go to both Canterbury and Cambridge on my trip next year!
