Tradition has it that refugees from Oxford founded Cambridge University in the early 13th century, and a rivalry has existed between the two university towns ever since, a rivalry that is played out annually in the Boat Race on the River Thames. Cambridge is a fairly compact town that can be easily walked, but car rentals are available for trips to the surrounding countryside. With cheap car rental locations all over Cambridge and a large variety of discount rental cars, there is no better way to tour England than by car!
The area has been populated since Roman times and a castle was built on Castle Hill in 1068. There are historic buildings and sites around almost every corner, the best known of which is Kings College Chapel. Less well known is a site that is now part of St. Catherine's College that was the location of a livery stable run by Thomas Hobson. Hobson realized that some horses were more popular than others with his student customers and were being overworked. He instituted a rotation system requiring the customer to take whatever horse was closest to the door, thus giving us the phrase "Hobson's Choice". Rental cars have since replaced horses as the means for a weekend get-away. If you have any questions about driving in Cambridge, visit Kemwel's driving information page for the answers.
