Do you like aeroplanes? Duxford (http://duxford.iwm.org.uk/) is a few miles south of us here in Cambridge..Not sure about travel Stansted -> Duxford though....
In town, there's a number of museums, notably the Fitzwilliam Museum (antiquities etc) and of course the university colleges.

Subject: [OSM-talk] SOTM travel and what to see in Cambridge
I'm coming to SOTM but I don't know how or when. I'll most
probably fly Ryanair. They take me to Stansted, which is very
close to Cambridge. Wikipedia says trains and buses leave
Stansted for Cambridge every hour; buses probably cheaper.
If I'm flying Ryanair out of Stansted (back to Stockholm-NYO),
there is no flight late on Sunday evening, so I would have to stay
til Monday. Since that day is ruined anyway, I'll catch the
latest flight out at 6.15pm.
Is there anything else to see in or near Cambridge, so that I
should come a day earlier? Out of the blue I came to think of the
Colossus museum at Bletchley Park (www.bletchleypark.org). They
seem to be open every day (otherwise, museums tend to be closed on
Mondays), so this could be fit before or after the SOTM
conference. They should be open 9.30am to 5.00pm on weekdays.
Is anybody else coming along? Does Thursday, Friday or Monday fit
best for this?
Bletchley Park is located at Milton Keynes, halfway between
Cambridge and Oxford. This is farther than the distance
Stansted-Cambridge, perhaps an hour (?) away, or two. The
museum's website describes how to get there from Milton Keynes,
but what is the preferred way of spontaneous travel between Milton
Keynes and Cambridge or Stansted?
And what is a good way to catch Stansted in good time before
departure at 6.15pm? Would I need to start from Bletchley Park at
lunch? Perhaps Bletchley on Thursday is a better idea? Or
Friday? Is anybody driving to SOTM and passing by Bletchley Park
on Friday afternoon?
