Back to My Favourite Place ->

PatrickAt the start of my second year, a first-year asked me where my favourite place in Cambridge was. I tried to think of all the places that brought back fond memories. I think what they had in common was a sudden escape from the noise of a normal modern street. The town is busy but there are places where a few steps can take you out of the crowd.

These places can sometimes be the little territories of green in the centre of town, whether within a college or a churchyard. Some of them are hidden behind doors that remain closed until you investigate, such as the little house at Kettle's Yard. My favourite place is the area around All Saint's Passage. There is an expensive little cheese shop, where you might buy gifts, and a few scattered benches.

In Trinity Hall, there is a little wall by the river that is nearly always in use. It acts as a gathering point for the College and intersects with life on the water. It is a great place to talk to other students or observe business along the Cam.
