Cambridge is often a popular destination with holidaymakers as it offers great architecture, such as the St Bene't's Church and King's College Chapel, as well as the university buildings. The river Cam is also great during the summer to either sit by, or to rent a boat and cruise down whilst taking in the great location attractions. The nearby city of Peterborough is also popular with tourists and for ceremonial reasons the city still belongs to the county of Cambridgeshire. The cathedral and cultural and historical history attracts many people here who stay in Cambridgeshire's accommodation.
