Punting in Cambridge

Making the most of your time in Cambridge

The internship programme requires interns to be in the laboratories working on their research projects throughout the week but we do encourage interns to make the most of their free time and explore the local area.

Cambridge is a vibrant and exciting city, with a wide range of things to see and do.

Cambridge is full of parks, gardens and commons where you can walk, rest or have a picnic. Wandering along the River Cam will give you a great view of the city. You can visit the historic city centre on foot including the many Colleges, or go further and enjoy a day at the Milton Country Park.

There is a lot on offer for individuals interested in the arts and sciences with many free museums and galleries, including University of Cambridge museums.

If you want to explore further afield, London is only an hour from Cambridge and there are direct trains running every 30 minutes.

Getting around

Most university departments are situated either in the city centre or on the Biomedical Campus and there is a local bus service that runs regular services between these locations.

Of course, you also have the option of a more traditional means of transport in Cambridge: cycling.
