We had a lovely stay at Worth House. Good size room, clean and comfortable with some nice touches - bathrobes and slippers! (We have stayed in \'luxury\' boutique hotels and not had those!).

Visiting Cambridge With My Sis
Lovely boutique style rooms with lots of fab little extras (loved discovering the emergency kit!) - it\'s the thoughtful little touches take this B&B to the next level. The overall decor is lovely and contemporary with a nice finish throughout and good size bathrooms. Very good breakfast served by amenable hosts. On site parking was good with only a 20 minute or so walk into town (either along the river or by the main road). I would not hesitate to recommend this little gem. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

The room was spacious, clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable, and we really had everything we needed. The host was very friendly.

A 15-20 minute walk from the city centre (not a big problem, really, but our feet was very sore from the day before) and a 40-minute walk from the train station. The breakfast was a bit scarce (lacking in greens and other things), but this is typical for almost every hotel and B&B the UK.

Great B&b With Wonderful Hosts
We really enjoyed our stay at Worth House and a lot of it was due to our exceptionally friendly hosts, Maria and Guido. This is a very small intimate B&B, which is well situated for visiting downtown Cambridge. We walked to/from all our sites, but buses and taxis were available close by. A few restaurants were a 5 minute walk away, as well. The beds/pillows were the most comfortable of the entire trip. Rooms were well furnished, clean and maintained. Breakfast and chit chatting with Guido was a lot of fun, and they made our food to order. Definitely one of our most favorite B&Bs of the entire vacation.

Kings College - Cambridge - Select One

Kings College - Cambridge - Select One

Distance 1.05 miles (1.68 km)
King's was founded in 1441 by King Henry VI. His first design was modest, but by 1445 was intended to be a magnificent display of royal patronage. There were to be a Provost and seventy scholars, occupying a substantial site in central Cambridge whose drastic clearance involved the closure of several streets. The college was granted a remarkable series of feudal privileges, and all of this was supported by a substantial series of endowments from the King.
King Henry VI had admired the achievements of William of Wykeham, who had founded the twin colleges of New College, Oxford (King's College's Sister College) and Winchester College in 1379. He subsequently modelled the establishment of King's and Eton College upon the successful formation of Wykeham's institutions. Indeed, the link that King's College and Eton College share is a direct copy of the link shared between New College and Winchester College.[1] The four colleges continue to share formal ties to this day.
Originally, the college was to be specifically for boys from Eton College. It was not until 1865 that the first non-Etonian undergraduates arrived to study at King's, and the first fellow to have not attended Eton was elected in 1873. The connection with Eton is now weak, but a scholarship to attend the college, exclusively available to students from Eton, is still awarded each year.
The very first buildings of the college, now part of the Old Schools, were begun in 1441, but by 1443 the decision to build to a much grander plan had been taken. That plan survives in the 1448 Founders Will describing in detail a magnificent court with a chapel on one side. But within a decade, civil war (the Wars of the Roses) meant that funds from the King began to dry up. By the time of his deposition in 1461, the chapel walls had been raised 60 ft high at the east end but only 8 ft at the west; a building line which can still be seen today as the boundary between the lighter stone below and the darker above. Work proceeded sporadically until a generation later in 1508 when the Founder's nephew King Henry VII was prevailed upon to finish the shell of the building. The interior had to wait a further generation until completion by 1544 with the aid of King Henry VIII.
It has been speculated that the choice of the college as a beneficiary by the two later Henrys was a political one, with Henry VII in particular concerned to legitimate a new, post-civil war Tudor regime by demonstrating patronage of what was by definition the King's College. Later building work is marked by an uninhibited branding with the Tudor rose and other symbols of the new establishment, quite against the precise instructions of the Founders Will. Henry VI is not completely forgotten at the College, however, the Saturday after the end of Michaelmas term each year is Founder's Day which begins with a Founder's Eucharist in the chapel, followed by a Founder's Breakfast with ale and culminating in a sumptuous dinner in his memory called "Founder's Feast" to which all members of College in their last year of studies are invited.
