Overview
Tour the prestigious university city of Cambridge with an accredited Blue Badge guide. Trained to deliver the UK’s gold standard of guided tours, your Blue Badge guide has all the info on Cambridge, plus many stories that you won’t find in the guidebooks. Hear about the antics of famous Cambridge University alumni, such as Charles Darwin, and discover renown college buildings and hidden gems along the way.
Highlights
  • Learn more about Cambridge with one of the UK’s esteemed Blue Badge guides
  • See a large number of Cambridge landmarks in a short amount of time
  • Discover famous university college buildings without getting lost
  • Hear tales of Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Lord Byron in Cambridge
What to Expect
Meet your Blue Badge guide in Cambridge and then kick off your tour with an overview of the university city and its colleges. Stroll past the city’s oldest building and see the oldest example of student digs as you hear stories about student life and pranks in Cambridge through the years. Then, pass the site where the atom was famously split for the first time ever, spawning the discovery of DNA. Further highlights include the Corpus Clock and the prestigious university buildings of the Senate House. While admission to the university colleges aren't included, visit Pembroke College, if possible, and see others, such as Corpus Christi College and King’s College, from the outside. With tales of notable alumni, such as Isaac Newton, ringing in your ears, bid your guide goodbye outside Trinity College.

On a cold and windy Saturday afternoon we booked ourselves on a tour and with two Australians, one American, and another British couple we were given an excellent tour of the highlights of Cambridge. We would recommend as we found it most informative and really good value.

Mark is a legend. I now have to fill this space with 100 characters before it will allow me to post a review so I'll just say that if you want to have a sick time and learn a lot about Cambridge go on this tour with Mark he's a chiller and it's worth it.

What a great way to see many of the older Cambridge Colleges in the company of a wonderful Guide. We know of the generations of rivalry between Cambridge & Oxford but for us this walking tour wins hands down!
