Cambridge is a university city and the county town of Cambridgeshire, England, on the River Cam about 50 miles (80 km) north of London.
The University of Cambridge, founded in 1209 is one of the top five universities in the world. The university includes the Cavendish Laboratory, King’s College Chapel, and the Cambridge University Library. Anglia Ruskin University, formed from the Cambridge School of Art and the Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology, also has a campus in the city.
Cambridge is at the heart of the high-technology Silicon Fen with industries such as software and bioscience and many start-up companies spun out of the university.
