Cambridge is located north of London
in Eastern England, not
far from another famous University city, Oxford. Cambridge
is set between marshlands to the south and the wild fens to
the north, and the city was established as a ford over the Cam
River. When the Romans built a bridge over the Cam River, the
city acquired its official name. The historic Cambridge
University owns much of the city.
Other attractions in Cambridge is the Round Church, one of only four medieval round churches
in existence and the numerous historic colleges: St. John's,
Trinity, Caius, Catherine's and King's College.
