ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Private Walking Tour of Royal Cambridge Colleges

Enjoy a personalised tour of the famous royal colleges in Cambridge during this exciting private experience for up to twenty people!

Explore two of Cambridge’s most prestigious colleges during this private 2.5-hour walking tour of King’s and Queen’s. Led by registered Cambridge Green Badge Guides, it offers a fascinating insight into the life and history of the city. 

King’s College was founded by Henry VI in 1441, and its chapel—eventually completed in 1544—is commonly regarded as one of the finest examples of late Gothic English architecture. Queen’s was founded in 1448 by Henry’s wife Margaret of Anjou, and together, the two colleges contain some of the city’s most recognisable buildings. Notable alumni include humanist philosopher Erasmus, Great Britain’s first prime minister Robert Walpole, the father of theoretical computer science and AI Alan Turing, and Stephen Fry. During your private 2.5-hour tour, you’ll follow in their footsteps as you go inside the colleges. You’ll learn all about their colourful history, as well as visiting other nearby landmarks—the Old Cavendish Laboratory, St. Bene’t’s 11th century church, the Eagle Pub, and many more. Ask your expert guide as many questions as you like and leave feeling thoroughly enlightened.

The Private Royal Cambridge Colleges Walking Tour is a must-do activity for visiting history buffs. Surprise your loved one with an Experience Days voucher today!
