Weekend in Cambridge

On Saturday me and the girls went to the beautiful city of Cambridge, having never been before I was very excited. Luckily it was sunny & hot all day (my fair skin was not loving it)

For the day I wore H&M printed shorts (£14.99) with a rust basic vest (£3.99) & New Look Lattice Sandals (£13.50)





When we first arrived in Cambridge we ate breakfast at Bills - Full English with a Melon, Peach & Raspberry Smoothie yummy!



After we went PUNTING with beautiful views of Cambridge we managed to only collide with a few boats busiest river I've ever seen





Eating strawberries & drinking Pink Moscato 




The girls


After we visited the rooftop bar in The Varsity Hotel a bit expensive but worth it when you see the views of Cambridge from up high


I must admit I actually prefer Cambridge to Oxford so much more character & lots of cute shops!

  1. When in Cambridge punting is a must do...
    Although crowded in weekends it is nice, and relaxing to see the major colleges from the water. Interesting talk from the guide in a very old punter and waiting ttimes for onboarding too long.
