Cambridge prides itself as a city rich with history and heritage. The Romans were responsible for the first buildings to be built in Cambridge. They first used the city as a convenient crossing point over the River Cam. Nowadays, Cambridge takes pride in having one of the highest concentrations of preserved historic buildings in the country. Architectural beauty centres around the 800-year-old university and it’s thirty-one colleges. It was in 1284 that the first Cambridge College, Peterhouse, was founded. The city now capitalises on its prestigious university to become popular with hi-tech businesses. This is particularly in areas such as computing and science. An increase in these businesses brings a rise in available corporate housing and corporate accommodation across Cambridge.
