Cambridge and its surrounding areas have played backdrop to a number of big-budget films and classic TV series. 2015 saw the release of The Theory of Everything - a biopic of renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking - which was filmed on Cambridge's cobbled streets and at the University of Cambridge's colleges where he studied.
To really get away from it all, take a stroll through one of Cambridge's many open spaces and beautiful gardens.
