After a successful trip into Oxford we've decided to organise a weekend in Cambridge but its not that easy. The train trip would be long and expensive so we want to take the car. Hotels are expensive and valet parking is either non existent or costs up to £25 / night. We're considering staying a night in Ely to take in the cathedral and then a night at the accommodation at Jesus College in Cambridge itself - looks good, but I need to be sure we can use their parking (limited availability but only £10/night). I'm phoning them shortly but wondered if anyone else had any clever ways of organising a weekend to take in Ely and Cambridge without completely breaking the bank.
