At the weekend I had a wonderful day out to Cambridge with my mum and my lovely girl. The weather was just perfect and Cambridge looked beautiful. We decided to take a tour of the college backs on a punt on the River Cam. This the famous Bridge of Sighs.
This is the historic St John's College which was used for famous scenes in the Harry Potter films.
Clematis and roses tumbled over many of the historic walls.
The views of the colleges are really breathtaking from the river. Drifting along in the sunshine in a punt is just the perfect way to sight see.
We also explored on foot and enjoyed a pitcher of Pimms in the famous and ancient Eagle pub.
We went in to Queens College and admired the varied range of architectural styles.
Inside the Old Hall there were magnificent stained glass windows and vibrant Arts and Crafts painted walls and ceiling. The tiles around the fireplace are by Morris,Marshall,Faulkner and Co. and Ford Maddox Brown.
