1.5-Hour Cambridge and Cambridge Colleges Walking Tour
US$20.18
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.
What to Expect
Meet your Blue Badge guide at Peas Hill 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, 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, bid your guide goodbye outside Trinity College.
