The River Cam at Midsummer Common, Cambridge

Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th March

Weekend in Cambridge

YHA Cambridge is near the railway station, a short walk from the city centre with its myriad of museums, colleges, pubs etc. The hostel was recently modernised, with its own café and bar.

As well as enjoying the cultural attractions of the city, we could stroll across the meadows to Grantchester, or walk from Waterbeach on the towpath of the River Cam. Or perhaps try the Cambridge chalk streams circular walk following Hobson's Brook and Cherry Hinton Brook, or even trek the full 19-mile Cambridge Ring.
