What’s it like to live in Cambridge? Although Oxford and Cambridge are often smudged together in the portmanteau word Oxbridge, Cambridge is in a much less densely populated part of the country, a medieval gem in the midst of the wild and remote fens of East Anglia. There are two areas in which it is usually agreed that Cambridge outstrips its rival: science and comedy. The Cambridge Footlights has produced its fair share of super stars (Monty Python anyone?). Cambridge is the natural home of geniuses and eccentrics!
