Midsummer Common is the largest open space in Cambridge. It's great to come to to chill out and unwind. Don't miss the summer Midsummer Fair (from which the common gets its name), its over 800 years old so don't miss that!
Midsummer Common is a large park area crisscrossed with diagonal pathways. It is a delightful place to walk and enjoy the fresh air. I use it regularly on my annual visits to my old college, Emmanuel. Midsummer Common is bounded on its north side by the River Cam and on its south side by Jesus College.
