-The ultimate insider's guide to Cambridge, fully illustrated with 200 color photographs -Features interesting and unusual places not found in traditional travel guides -Part of the international 111 Places/111 Shops series with over 170 titles and 1 million copies in print worldwide -Appeals to both the local market (124,000 people call Cambridge home) and the tourist market (over 5 million people visit Cambridge every year) What do movable dolls' eyes have to do with a Catholic church?
