Cambridge Fitzwilliam Museum

After the punt we walked down again towards Kings College where there was a market happening. We then followed directions to a library which turned out to be the public library. It was mentioned when on the punt that each college has a library but these are exclusive to the college. A. A. Milne’s manuscript of Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner Is housed in Wren Library, Trinity College.  The public library had friendly staff and was modern and housed in a shopping centre.

Beyond Kings Colleges we came to Fitzwilliam Museum. It had a magnificent collection ranging from Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Medieval English, an extensive porcelain collection. We spent quite some time there including afternoon tea in a beautiful glassy and light café. After such a full day we were all rather exhausted.

We made our way back to the flat and after a late afternoon rest we made our way around the corner for a pub meal and then an early night to explore some more of Cambridge the next morning and then make our way back to London.
