Cambridge Tour
 CAMBRIDGE  "can such places be?"  

"the most beautiful city in Europe" 

Watch the video Cambridge. Miraculum orbis. Wonder of the world, annexe to heaven. Bridge of sighs. Mediaeval courts. Velvet-soft emerald lawns. The unearthly beauty of Kings.* Newton's room and garden where he experimented and, yes, that apple tree – think of him "forever voyaging through strange seas of thought." The calm of the tree-fringed Backs. Willow-shrouded banks of the Cam. The plaintive note of the World War II American cemetery. Darwin's college. Stephen Hawking and The Theory of Everything. Alan Turing – yes, welcome to The Imitation Game. The pub where the structure of DNA was announced. Punting on the Cam (we'll get a really generous discount if you want to take a turn – or, indeed, just go along for the ride). Leafy streets and twisty alleys. Whispering wind and yellow lantern. Shadowed passage and haunted bookstore. Pink Floyd – Another Brick in the Wall. Bicycling students. Cheese and fish stalls in the market. People who talk like books... Here's a photo-essay.  And more video anyone? Here's a little how-it-works job - the logistics, the practical details, etc. And here's a hot-off-the-press Cambridge piece that was earmarked for the London Walks Blog but found a home here instead. You'll learn something fairly tasty from it.

*And-a one and-a two... take it away, Simon. In short, here's some audio for you.
