From the hills of Scotland to the white-sand beaches of Cornwall, a trip to the United Kingdom is nothing if not varied. The same can be said for the hotels – the nation’s history is on full display in its accommodation options, from 15th-century-style inns to hypermodern aparthotels.

Chances are, if you’re visiting Cambridge, you’re keen to discover the university. And at the Varsity, your exploring needn’t stop at check in, with college memorabilia lining the hallways, geometric wallpaper in the spacious rooms and even bicycles adorning the lounge area. On top of this, the hotel overlooks the Cam, and sits just yards from the punt station, so you can join students on the water. If you’re feeling a bit less outgoing (or the weather isn’t agreeable), there’s also a gym, spa, rooftop bar and a restaurant with options to suit all tastes.
