Did you know that the name Cambridge means bridge over the River Cam which is in itself named after the city of Cambridge having been known until the 18th Century as the River Granta. The upper reaches of the Cam above Silver Street Bridge are still known informally as the Granta.
With a population of some 100,000 persons with a further 25,000 students, Cambridge is a small city with a vibrant economy with particular specialisations in the IT and bio-science fields in “silicon fen” and with companies often formed with staff from the University, sometimes following research carried out there.
The first Association Football match was played at Cambridge, and with the historic University being situated close to the River Cam, rowing and punting are popular Cambridge sporting pastimes.
Many historic classical buildings are to be found in and around Cambridge including both University buildings and stateley homes such as Wimpole House.
