This last year, we've realised that train travel is so much easier now we don't have to use a stroller so off we went on public transport. In retrospect, bringing little people back through London, on the tube on a hot day, in the rush hour, two days before the London Olympics are due to start wasn't particularly clever. Still, we had a successful, if exhausting, day.
Cambridge was just full of bicycles.
Of course, the colleges
The children hadn't realised or probably, more correctly, I hadn't explained that Cambridge is more than a university. They were impressed by the bookshops -is this nuture or nature? The museums were also a hit.
This museum was particularly child friendly and the iguanodon reconstruction was a real bonus. We wouldn't agree with the historical interpretation of much in the Museum but it is worth viewing, none the less.
We looked at the Egyptian collection and the amazing paintings on the coffins.
We were tired after this so wandered to the River Cam.
There are some tired children. I'm not sure how far we walked but it was very hot and they are both too big for me to carry!
