We start at the Round Church, Cambridge's quirkiest (and, we think, most beautiful) Church building, which predates the earliest college (Peterhouse, 1284) by 150 years. After an introduction to the building's 800-year history, we venture down to the river, where a clear sense of the town's origins can be gained at Magdalene Bridge. We are on friendly

Our guide was Dave and he took us around Cambridge imparting his vast knowledge on the history of the city. I would have liked to have seen more of the universities but many were closed to the public.
