Cambridge is a beautiful county town, well known for its university. It lays claim to having one of the highest concentrations of perfectly preserved historic buildings, centered around Cambridge University’s 31 colleges.
Refined Cambridge is rich in tradition, but “tradition” is not a synonym of boredom, as the town is crowded with students, so it reflects its own young energy along with the impressive ancient atmosphere. And London is only 45 minutes by train.
You can go punting on the River Cam, enjoy a picnic in the park, and explore the city on foot or from the seat of a bicycle. You can enjoy its cultural opportunities (theatres, cinemas, galleries), you can become a part of the everyday life of the town, meet locals and students in local pubs in downtown.
All of it becomes possible with Working Traveller.

YHA is located in the university town, it was completely refurbished in 2014 and offers 122 (dorms and private rooms).

You can cook your own food on site or buy a meal from the restaurant for £2.
