The Backs (i.e. the backs of the colleges), where lawns reach down to the Cam River, is very picturesque and best experienced on a punt. At the front, the handsome facades of these same colleges dominate the layout of the town centre, lining up along the main streets.
Nosing around the colleges hidden courts and gardens, and searching out ancient libraries, reflectories and chapels is the most pleasurable part of a visit.
