Cambridge's best view is across the River Cam to the gothic chapel of King's College. Although the town is justly famous for its university, much of it is quite ancient and originated in a celtic settlement around a ford on the river. A bridge and outpost was established here by the romans and Cambridge has been a flourishing regional centre for hundreds of years.The University began at the start of the 13th century when a group of students on the run from townspeople in Oxford arrived in Cambridge.
