I'll be spending about a week in Cambridge to see some family. Though I'm technically English, I grew up in the USA and I've never been to England before. Can anyone give me some tips on what to do for the week I'm there (without bleeding out cash would be helpful). Any SF'ers in the area as well?

I live in Cambridge.

One day worth of tourist stuff here, but it's good. 30 Colleges, Small but perfectly formed museum - plenty of picasso, renoir etc. Punting on the river.

The rest of the time? 49 Minutes to London on the train

Other notes:

re cash bleeding - all major museums in the UK are free.

London is 20 quid return on the fast line, or 14 quid on the slow line.

In February, I'd avoid the countryside - the fens are desolate in the winter.

Thanks Juniper- sounds like I'll spend a lot of time in the gym then
Crazy that here I can get by on about five quid a day, but over there it's about 40. :/ The things we do for our estranged, awkward English family...

never been to cambridge but have spent a lot of time in england. Do you like castles? Tons of cool castles all over the place but you'll have to drive around to see them. stone henge is worth seeing once imo. Don't know what the coast is like in those parts but I always liked weymouth (not really close to where you'll be). not sure if there's something similar a bit closer to cambridge...
