Head back to school with a charming weekend in Cambridge
This Annabel’s inspired hotel gets a first for honouring Cambridge’s historic past.
A city steeped in formidable history, both the impressive heritage and picturesque 16th century architecture of Cambridge has long attracted both scholars and tourists alike.
Famous for the great minds that shaped its legacy, Cambridge is an obvious choice for an intellectual excursion, but thanks to its quaint pubs, bijoux bars, and an emergence of luxury, style-led hotels, it is fast becoming the destination du jour for those seeking a relaxing weekend away.
Arriving in the city on a sunny afternoon, we made our way to the magnificent University Arms on Regent Street. Having recently undergone an £80 million makeover at the hands of architect John Simpson, the oldest hotel in Cambridge expertly combines the classic, collegiate style of its high-brow schooling with lashings of modern luxury.
