Ladies Weekend 2011 – Cambridge

Our weekend was rounded off today with a walking tour of Cambridge. Given the quality of much of the architecture we’ve seen in the City it is truly amazing that so many of the buildings which the various colleges have erected in the last 40 years are in this context nothing short of eyesores – and hanging the skeleton of a dead whale under them does nothing to hide the fact.

Thankfully what was there before more than makes up and after a tour of the grounds of Queens’ College we were simply blown away by the splendour of Kings College chapel which definitely was the icing on the cake for us- so familiar through the Christmas Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols but in the flesh so much more imposing.

Blessed with fine weather and good fellowship we’ll all take away happy memories of our visit to Cambridge and look forward to our next Ladies Weekend in 2012.
