Hotels within three hours of London in Cambridge, United Kingdom

More than Oxford, more than any other UK city, Cambridge is dominated by its university. The semi-independent colleges – 31 of them – own most of the city centre's bricks and mortar, although that's a rather reductive term for the towers, chapels, great halls, labyrinthine libraries and cobbled courts that line the streets. Peek under the hem of the scholar's gown, however, and you find a chic shopper's city, a cluster of fine restaurants, the most cycle-friendly urban centre in England, and an idyllic place to spend a summer afternoon messing around on, or by, the river.
