About Cambridge

Cambridge is a city and historic university town and administrative centre of the county of Cambridgeshire, England. The city is located on the River Cam, from which it derives its name, and is around 50 miles to the north of London. The University of Cambridge was founded in 1209 and is consistently ranked as one of the top 5 universities in the world.

Modern day Cambridge has a diverse economy with strength in sectors such as research and development, software consultancy, high value engineering, creative industries, pharmaceuticals and tourism. The city lies at the heart of the high-technology centre known as Silicon Fen with its strength lying in industries such as software and bioscience with many companies having spun out of the university. The city is also home to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus which is one of the world's largest biomedical research clusters.

Cambridge is home to the internationally regarded Kettle's Yard gallery and the artist run Aid and Abet project Space. A short distance to the west of Cambridge is Wysing Arts Centre, one of the leading research centres for the visual arts in Europe.

Cambridge is twinned with two cities; Heidelberg in Germany since 1965, and Szeged in Hungary since 1987.

About Oxford

The historic university city of Oxford is located in the county of Oxfordshire and is roughly 35 miles to the east of Cheltenham and 30 miles to the south west of Milton Keynes. Although known for its university the economy of Oxford is also reliant on car making, publishing, science and technology, bellfounding and brewing. Several of the University's colleges had private breweries which includes Brasenose College whose brewery survived until 1889.

Oxford used to be an important port of the River Thames, although the section of the Thames that runs through Oxford is called The Isis. To accommodate commercial traffic the Oxford-Burcot Commission in the 17th century took steps to improve the navigability of the river. The Oxford Canal was constructed in the 18th century in order to connect Oxford with the Midlands. Commercial traffic has given way to recreational use of the river and canal. Oxford was the original base of Salters Steamers and there is a regular service from Folly Bridge downstream to Abingdon and beyond.

Interesting attractions in the city include the Ashmolean Museum, the Bodleian Library, Christ Church Cathedral, The Headington Shark, the Museum of History and Science and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
