Your visit to Cambridge wouldn’t be complete without walking through King’s Parade. With views of King Henry VII Statue, King’s College and King’s College Chapel on one side and shops, restaurants and cafe on the other, it is no wonder that this pedestrianised road in Cambridge is a must-see for visitors.
While Cambridge University has a University-level library, each of it’s 31 colleges also has its own college library for the use of its college members. Gonville & Caius (pronounced ‘Keys’) has had its own collection of books since its founding in 1348 and these have been housed in a purpose built library since 1441.
Continuing north along King’s Parade in Cambridge takes you onto a short road called Senate House Hill. Here, you are surrounded by some of the grandest of buildings in Cambridge. They include The Old Schools, The Senate House, Great St. Mary’s the University Church and Gonville and Caius College.

The Backs The Backs of Cambridge refer to a continuous green space and the curve of the river Cam running behind several of the Cambridge colleges – Kings, Trinity, St Johns, Clare College. The small wooded area is tree lined with a walking/cycling path along the ‘back’ entrances to the Colleges.
The pull to Kineya was irresistible, and we felt that we had to get another visit in before we left Cambridge. This time we tried a few different things and again, the tempura counter was just too enticing to ignore.
We were desperate for a noodle fix while in Cambridge and decided to try Kineya Mugimaru on Petty Cury, Cambridge, in Lion Yard. While we are generally bigger fans of ramen than udon, Kineya only serves udon; that and a whole range of tempura and some rice bentos.
Our stop at YORI wasn’t for the Korean BBQ but a quick lunch. Although, we would love to come back and try out the full Korean BBQ experience. Lured by their lunch set offers on their window, we were promptly shown to a table for two and encouraged to order using the QR code on […]
Tucked away in a non descript building, at the corner where Trumpington Road (A1134) meets Lensfield Road (A603) is Japas a small Japanese izakaya-style restaurant.
