World famous Cambridge is an idyllic university city, boasting romantic rivers and stunning architecture. It is also surrounded by luscious rolling countryside meaning car hire is the perfect means of exploring all the area has to offer.
The laidback atmosphere gives Cambridge a distinct edge over the hustle and bustle of major cities, but it still has an abundance of shopping areas and entertainment to cover every taste. The city centre is full of quaint cobbled streets, independent shops and a great mix of bars and restaurants. Benet Street has become known as the arts quarter of the city, with a vibrant cafe society and a plethora of bookshops. Alternatively, you can unwind on the banks of the River Cam with a bit of alfresco dining.
Cambridgeshire is a stunning area that demands to be explored. Venture out beyond the city and you will find country estates surrounded by acres of gardens and parkland. Bestowed to the National Trust forty years ago, the Wimpole Estate is perfect for a day of sightseeing and relaxation. Get lost in the series of stunning gardens or pay a visit to the working farm, all of which is set within a 2,500 acre estate.
Cambridge is also a great base from which to explore surrounding towns, allowing you to enjoy a wide variety of days out.
Cambridge van hire
Cambridge is home to some 25,000 students, spread across the city's two universities. Van hire is the perfect solution for those temporarily – or permanently – moving into or out of the area, while one-way van hire gives you the flexibility of not having to return the vehicle to the same location from which you hired it.
