CAMBRIDGE, England – King’s Parade, which turns into Trumpington Street, is perhaps the busiest street in Cambridge. And because the city is a hub of tourism, filled with historic buildings, shops and restaurants, it’s busy pretty much all of the time.
On the weekend, King’s Parade can be nearly impassable with photo-taking tourists, families with strollers and those wishful-thinkers looking for a leisurely stroll. People come to see the numerous historic colleges that are part of Cambridge University, the university’s museums and tour historic churches for free.
The street also has a bevy of small, typically English shops, with goods ranging from scotch to artwork.
