Cambridge is a beautiful town about 45 minutes north of London. It has beautiful architecture in the centre' date=' including the infamous Kings College Chapel, and there are hardly any industrial buildings because the University is so strict! :stunned: it also has loadsa shops, cinema etc and so many greens dotted around the town it's not even funny! lol very good in summer though. Whilst walking through the centre you are more likely to hear french, spanish, italian, japanese, chinese or any other language being spoken rather than english all year round because there are some many foreign students living in Cambridge, it is very cosmopolitan! :P the inhabitants of the town are mostly people who used to go to the university or people who came to learn english who settled here, i know hardly any people whose parents live here cos they were born and raised here! it is very safe and a great place to grow up because of the mixture of people you meet and get to know here. :D[/quote']

My boyfriend goes to Cambridge uni and I've travelled from Manchester loadddsss to see him!

I love Cambridge SOOO much! We went to the University Botanical Gardens a few weeks back...wow

It's my perfect idea of a city - not too big, not too small :)

The view from my balcony is pretty neat, I live in downtown Kitchener, Ontario. Ill post a pic of it some time. I go to school in waterloo, which is a student ghetto, I am glad that I moved out. There are two universities on the same street, and a college nearby too, so it's all students all year long. Which means garbage, drinking at 3 in the morning, noise, etc.

Baldock is a very small town in North Hertfordshire 37 miles from the north of London. It used to be on the main trading route to the capital, and as such has a large number of inns, pubs, take-aways and restaurants for its size. It was founded in Roman times, and some of the architecture dates back as far back as the 16th century.


The town contains a prestigious secondary school and four primary schools, a small industrial estate, several recreational areas, a sports hall, and is not far from an indoor swimming pool and leisure centre.
