CA72 "Capture the Cam" Competition

Cambridge is a city full of incredible historic and contemporary architecture, but what makes Cambridge such a special place to live and work?  When thinking about the context of Cambridge, it’s impossible not to think of the River Cam and the role it has played across the centuries.

With a fully equipped gym and spa at your fingertips you can get fit and feel pampered right in the heart of the city. Plus The Glassworks will throw in three personal training sessions with one of their experienced fitness experts!
