A Winter’s Day in Cambridge

With imminent wedding planning consuming our every spare thought, this weekend we decided we needed a break, a weekend away without once mentioning the W word.

When it’s winter in England and the temperature is struggling to make 3 degrees with icy winds and occasional snow showers, it can be difficult to know where to go for a weekend away.

We decided to visit a place that looks beautiful all year round, the river Cam in Cambridge. It was shiveringly cold as we headed out bundled up under layer upon layer of clothing.  Although no one seemed brave enough to sit in a punt at this time of year, we did see a couple of canoeists enjoying the water.

It looks deserted but still postcard pretty under a very crisp, blue sky. These are a few quick shots from the river walk.

    1. Hello Kamila
      Thank you very much, that’s very kind of you. I think I’ll go back in the summer when it’s warm enough to enjoy the river with a punt 🙂

  1. Looks lovely, love the blue sky! I always think the cold is perfectly bearable as long as there is a bit of blue sky and sunshine 🙂

    1. It was beautifully crisp but when the wind came it was so cold it stung our faces! Perfect excuse to head back to the hotel to warm up in the spa 🙂

    1. Not a word was spoken of the wedding for 48 hours, it was perfect and peaceful…back to suppliers and bookings now though. I was surprised someone didn’t have a punt as it was so pretty but nothing would have convinced me to sit still in that temperature!
