1.5-hour Cambridge and Cambridge Colleges Walking Tour
US$20.05
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 famous college buildings and hidden gems along the way.
What to Expect
Meet your Blue Badge guide at Peas Hill in Cambridge, 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. You’ll 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 admissions to the university colleges aren't included, you’ll 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, you’ll bid your guide goodbye outside Trinity College.

Fascinating morning

Our guide was enthusiastic and informative. She took us to places that, even as Cambridge residents, we had not been before. She engaged the school group that we had brought and gave us a fascinating morning that encompassed many subjects.

Walking tour with Maggie

Totally fantastic. Maggie was the perfect tour guide. So interesting and entertaining. We have visited Cambridge many times but we now see it in a quite different way. Would recommend this to anyone.
