visit one of the prettiest towns in England


With its 31 colleges the city of Cambridge is one of the oldest universities in the world and one of the top. The town centres around the university so it has a real feel of an academic centre in a way Oxford doesn't. Its colleges are in a variety of different styles but the most impressive is Kings College with its chapel that is often regarded as one of the finest buildings in Europe with stain glass from the 16th century. its ceiling is a real sight to behold. There are many lovely places to have lunch and you can also do 'punting' on the river Cam - a sort of gondola. apart from visiting Kings we can also visit Queens' College, Downing college, Emmanuel college (Darwin, s college), Sidney Sussex college (Cromwell, s college) or Trinity's college (Isaac Newton, s college) depending on which is open that day. It's less than one hour to get to by train

A Recent Review of this tour

We had an excellent tour of Cambridge with Edward! His knowledge of history and culture is vast. He's very patient, answers questions readily and thoroughly, and obviously enjoys working with tourists. We especially liked the fact that he got to know our interests and adjusted the tour accordingly. We highly recommend Edward to anyone looking for an outstanding guide!
