Sunny Day in Cambridge

It was a lovely Sunny day in Cambridge. I had a walk around the city after shopping and took a few snaps of  things that took my eye. I hope you like the photos and i will print more later.





Kings College Cambridge was founded in 1441 by HenryVI.  It is one of the 31 colleges which make up Cambridge University. It lies on the river Cam and faces out on to Kings Parade in the centre of the city.It is wideley considered to be one of the greatest examples of Late Gothic English architecture.
I like to come here and sit and have my lunch or just to rest while shopping. There are lots of small coffee shops nearby and also a daily market which serves food from all around the world.


Corpus Christi College clock "time eater" Opposite Kings College is this amazing clock. Dr John Taylor invented and installed this clock. It is covered in 24 carat gold plate. It cost over £1 million to design and build. I often stop here for a few minutes to watch the clock moving and always wonder how it works?

 
Down by the riverside i like to rest my tired legs and recharge for more shopping! Its sometimes nice to go out punting with friends and a have a lovely picnic. Again the river is close to the city centre.
