Historic Cambridge Walking Tour

Cambridge, United Kingdom


1 hour 30 minutesMobile & paper tickets accepted

Our walking tour takes in some of the famous colleges and historic sights of the city as you meander down quaint alleyways and tread the cobbled streets. You will hear quirky facts and stories of the colleges and their colourful alumni, all set within the context of English and world history, plus many fascinating tales of city life through the ages not generally mentioned in the guide books. We will take you to a church 1000 years old and reveal it’s hidden secret, down side streets to places of interest visitors don't normally see. You will go back in time to medieval Cambridge to discover how the University all started, visiting colleges over 700 years old and hearing their history. We will show you what it is to experience life as a student in a Cambridge College. All our tours are unique as we specialise in small groups and encourage interaction and questions

Tim was a great quide, full of interesting info and anecdotes. Very listenable to, bit of name dropping but that's Cambridge history. Made the tour interesting and fun. Would definitely recommend Tim.

Tim was already waiting at the allocated meeting point. He gave a very good introduction including safety issues, had excellent knowledge of the University and the area in general and added a little bit of humour along the way. When booking the tour

Tim’s tour of the colleges was brilliant! Tim has a passion for history which shines through, telling us funny stories about the colleges along the way! The only tour you should even consider going on! Thank you Tim for a great tour yesterday!
