ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Historic Cambridge Colleges Walking Tour - Adult

Join a Cambridge University graduate for a fascinating 90 minute tour round the famous colleges and historic town!

Explore a thousand years of human history during this guided walking tour of Cambridge. Led by a former or current student of the university, you’re guaranteed the insider’s take on this historic city!

Tours begin outside King’s College, where you’ll be met by your guide. Together, you’ll follow a 90-minute route through the cobbled streets and college quads of Cambridge, pausing at a variety of historic sites and local landmarks. Highlights include fine examples of Anglo-Saxon, Gothic and neoclassical architecture; the rooms in which Sir Isaac Newton developed his theory of gravity, and the pub where Crick and Watson announced (and presumably toasted!) their discovery of DNA’s double helix structure. You’ll also visit several of the university’s most revered colleges and get to see inside two of them. Students have been coming to Cambridge for over eight hundred years, and your guide will provide the inside scoop on what they get up to! From lavish May Balls to the dreaded all-nighters; the poshest college to the one flying the communist flag—this is the real story of Cambridge, as told by someone who’s lived it. 

The Historic Cambridge Colleges Walking Tour is a must-do activity for anyone visiting the city, and Experience Days vouchers make unique birthday or Christmas gifts. If you know someone with a passion for history, architecture and gossip, why not treat them today!
