I know most things in Cambridge are hideously expensive (houses, everything, and everything really) but if you want to see a nice aerial view of Cambridge from the top of a tall building, and don't mind having to walk a bit to see all round, or sharing your viewpoint with lots of metal objects on wheels which spew out toxic fumes, you could try going to the top level of the multistorey car park called Grafton Centre West. It's open to the sky, so you can get rained on if you like, and has lifts which will take you up to the top, so you don't even have to climb any stairs. The only problem is that you can't see 2 pi radians all around you, and you have to trek across the car park to see over the other side, but it's totally free, and you get the excuse to go through the Grafton Centre, a quite nice shopping centre boasting a Virgin Megastore, Bhs and Debenhams among others (C&A, anybody?), on your way there. Who could pass that up?

If you are a member of 'Friends of the UL', you can go to the top of the Universituy Library tower and get a fantastic view of the city. By proir arrangement, naturally, and it helps if you have a MA(Cantab)
