Cambridge información para los huéspedes

Cambridge visitor information

With Cambridge, the word unique takes on a new meaning. Founded as a University in 1209, the city today has preserved much of its outstanding beauty and original character as a quiet place of thought.

Visit Cambridge to wander among its narrow medieval streets or “The Backs”, the outstanding series of college gardens and grounds that lead down to the river. Study architecture of every period and of almost every century, and inspect the University’s many important literary, artistic, and scientific treasures. Some ideas include ghost walks, MP3 guided walks, visiting the Fitzwilliam Museum and of course, no visit to Cambridge is complete without punting down the River Cam!

“Such a balance of garden and building, of shape and form, of peace, quiet and constantly changing scene is only achieved once in the world” (R Tibbs, 1972).

It should be understood that colleges are designed primarily for students: not for children or adults expecting a high level of luxury. However, with this in mind, the colleges do meet level of comfort that we expect most visitors to be happy with, and we will welcome any feedback where this is not the case.

Historia de Cambridge

Cambridge history


Whilst Cambridge possibly existed in Roman times, and grew into a Norman market town (the name of the town mutated from Grentabrige or Cantebrigge (Grantbridge) its University has made it was it is today.

The University was formed 1209 when a group of Oxford scholars moved to the town to escape the violence prevelent in Oxford at the time. But even in these days the University was having problems of discipline (!). Students belonged to no particular body, were not responsible to any person and came and went in an irregular manner. By 1231 Cambridge students were sufficient in numbers and apparently so unruly that Henry III issued a number of writs for the punishment of the disorderly.

It was the solutions to these disciplinary problems, thought up by Hugh de Balsham, Bishop of Ely from 1257 to 1286 that was to sow the seeds of todays college system. He placed the scholars (now known as the "scholars of the Bishop of Ely") in two houses next to the Church of St Peter on the Trumpington Road. This became known as "The House of St Peter" and thus gradually the college system began to evolve, and Peterhouse, the first Cambridge college, was born.

In 1318 the University was officially baptised with a Papal Bull from Pope John XXII. Other colleges followed soon after: Trinity college (originally called Michaelhouse) was founded in 1324 by the Chancellor of the Exchequer of the time, Hervey de Stanton, and Clare college, originally called University Hall, was next in 1326. Pembroke college was founded in 1347 by the wife of the Eearl of Pembroke and the following year, Edward Gonville founded a college of his own which came to be known as Gonville Hall: this was then refounded by Dr John Caius in 1557 to give us Gonville and Caius.

Most colleges were founded by wealthy individuals from the Church, Government or landowners. Corpus Christi, founded in 1352, is unusual in that it is the only college which sprang directly from members of the town. Christopher Marlow, Shakespeare's famous contemporary, was a student at the college and one can still see his rooms in the old court.

King's College founded in the fifteenth century: Henry VI intended it to form part of a double foundation with Eton and in doing this there is some evidence that he was repeating the plan of William of Wykeham, who had founded Winchester and New College, Oxford. Queens' was founded by Margaret of Anjou, wife of Henry VI, and later, William IV's wife Elizabeth Woodville became a co-founder (thus Queens' rather than Queen's). This has not unnaturally be described as the first outward symbol of the reconciliation of the houses of York and Lancaster.

The fifteen century also brought two other colleges: John Alcock, the then Bishop of Ely, founded Jesus in 1469 and Robert Wodelark, a Provost of Kings College, founded St Catharine's in 1473.

Now with 31 colleges, the University has gradually grown in size, stature and influence on the world: its graduates have reached the highest levels in science, the Church, government, and business throughout the world.

(Comentarios de Downing College, Cambridge) Downing College, Cambridge

There were lots of crumbs next to the bed which I noticed late at night on my arrival. They were still there when the room had been cleaned the next day. My door was left ajar after the cleaner had been in on the first morning. Luckily I returned shortly after s/he had been so I was able to close it.

The porters were very helpful from arrival to departure. The room was clean and the shower was excellent. Breakfast could have been hotter but the choice was good. However the milk in our room was out of date.

(Comentarios de Downing College, Cambridge) Downing College, Cambridge

The rooms were clean and well appointed - better than we had expected - and we felt privileged to be able to stay in the college, right in the centre of town, at a very reasonable (for Cambridge) price.

(Comentarios de St John's College, Cambridge) St John's College, Cambridge

It was a hot night and the room has no aircon. It seemed, therefore, strange that the bed had a winter weight feather quilt. I expected to find a blanket in the cupboard - but there was nothing. In the end we took the quilt out of the cover and used the cover as bedding.

(Comentarios de Downing College, Cambridge) Downing College, Cambridge

The only reason I do not give the room an excellent rating is because my bed was a roll away and not a true bed like the one my husband got to sleep on. It was comfortable enough for our two night stay, but a regular twin bed would have been much appreciated.

I'm answering on behalf of the three friends I booked for (in two separate bookings). One found her bed very uncomfortable because the mattress sagged - she solved this by putting it on the floor. But in every other way, an excellent experience for all three. They would definitely return and I would book friends in at colleges again.

(Comentarios de Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge) Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge

Excellent base for working at the archives; great to have facility to buy dinner and lunch at extra cost. Wonderfully helpful staff in porter's lodge. The room was spacious and, if a little on the 'tired' side, a good and clean facility. An excellent experience, much appreciated.

St Catherine's were very helpful throughout, but links to the Speedy Booker web site consistently went through to non-secure pages for payment. It was only by inputting the secure address directly to the address bar that I was able to complete a secure transaction.
