This is a book for those who want to explore Cambridge city, University and Colleges in a deeper way by finding out about many of their outstanding features, and guided by a series of maps. It describes the garden city (gardens and parks, churches, bridges, rivers) and some special features (schools, hospitals, sport, drama, markets and shopping). Under 'Tools of Thought' there is a description of museums and laboratories, books and libraries, pubs and tea-houses, and the science parks round Cambridge. 'Conditions of Creativity' gives a brief introduction to music, exercise, clubs and societies, conversations and teaching methods, humour and imagination and private meeting places. There is then a brief overview of the twenty oldest Colleges and of fifty of the most important people who have been associated with Cambridge. Finally, there are a few poems and photographs as memories of Cambridge, with some selected reading and links to further on-line resources.
