The River Cam, Cambridge

The famous River Cam is one of the city’s most iconic landmarks and offers an abundance of scenic photo spots. Even if you don’t consider yourself a photographic visionary, you’ll never struggle to find a great backdrop for your family photo alongside the river. Make your way over to the waterway from the Tamburlaine Cambridge and stroll along its banks until you find a good spot.

The Mathematical Bridge, Cambridge

The “Mathematical Bridge” over the river CAM at the Queens College in Cambridge, United Kingdom. This famous wooden bridge at Queens College was originally designed and built in 1749 but has been rebuilt twice since.

Another great way of including the River Cam in your photo is by posing on one of the many bridges. This particular bridge holds a lot of history and is a very popular spot for tourists. The reason for this is down to the unique design which doesn’t use any screws or bolts and relies entirely on a mathematical principle. Set up your camera on the riverbank and organise yourselves along the bridge for a beautiful family photo that would look great on any wall or display.
