Hire a car in Cambridge

Resting upon the River Cam, Cambridge seems almost unchanged since its establishment.

This university town is quieter than its rival, Oxford, yet has seen just as many notable alumni pass through its doors. Thirty-one old university colleges dominate the town while the trimmed greenery of “The Backs” surround its stunning Gothic architecture and cobbled streets. But beyond the town’s academia, there are lots of other things to see and do. Hire a car with easyCar to delve into Cambridgeshire and the areas that inspire plenty of great minds.
