"The Ark is a great place to explore Cambridge from"
The Ark B&B is located close to the centre of Cambridge. We are well placed to have easy access (15-20 minutes walk) to the Historic City Centre, river, colleges of Cambridge University and museums. Even closer are the two shopping centres, Anglia Ruskin University, restaurants, a swimming pool and supermarkets.
Cambridge University is famous for its wide variety of architecture. The ages of the colleges range from hundreds of years old, to very modern buildings. The colleges have beautiful gardens, with a colourful array of flowers, usually beside the river Cam, which during the summer, can be visited by the public. There are also many free university museums, including the Fitzwilliam Museum and world-class buildings such as King's College Chapel.
The River Cam is only a short walk from The Ark. You can stroll along its banks, take in the lovely views of Midsummer Common and Jesus Green and treat yourself to a punt ride.
Hosts Marianne and Bartow have lived in Cambridge for many years and are happy to provide you with advice and help during your stay.
