The climate of Cambridge (England)
Together with Oxford Cambridge is one of the oldest university towns in the country. Cambridge is a very lively town. The old university buildings are well preserved and still in use. Among the beautiful sights are: Kingís Chapel, Trinity Court with its enormous library, the School of Pythagoras and the many colleges. Not all colleges are open to the public. Almost all of them are still in use and can only be visited at certain hours. Besides the large amounts of tourists that come here to admire the university buildings there are many things to do here thanks to the students. An interesting way of discovering the city is by punt. These flat boats that are propelled using a long pole; this proves to be an enjoyable way to get acquainted with the town. You can enjoy a lot of social events in Cambridge and sample Cambridge nightlife, there is always something to do in one of the many pubs.
Cambridge has a sea climate which is strongly influenced by the warm Gulf Stream. In comparison to other places at an equal degree of latitude temperatures are much higher here. During the winter temperatures may fluctuate. Most of the time temperatures are above freezing point. However there may be short periods of heavy frost. Rainfall is quite evenly spread out over the year. Cambridge is one of the driest places in England. However, because Cambridge is situated below sea level and its surroundings are flat the city tends to flood regularly. Especially after heavy rainfall.
