Back in the 'Bridge: an Anniversary, Cambridge - 3rd July 2016

Cambridge was where it all started, so it was an especially suitable choice of venue for a sixth wedding anniversary. To add to the fun, we stay in the student accommodation at Christ's College, about as close to the centre of town as it's possible to be. Not only are the grounds superb, but the rooms are pretty decent too, and significantly cheaper than a hotel.
