WALKING TOURS OF CAMBRIDGE
The historic city of Cambridge is one of the Uk's top tourist destinations. Whether you are interested in famous names, architecture, eating and drinking, music or museums, there is plenty to see and do. But don't take our word for it. Travel writer Chris Hallam wrote this in the Sunday Times on 21 February 2016:
Are you ready for a laid-back, mind-enriching weekend of outstanding beauty in the most civilised city on earth? The fenland capital is much more than the place that came up with DNA, Stephen Hawking and the computer. It also offers exquisite architecture, magnificent museums, an extraordinary arts scene and a buzzing foodie culture. Oh, and a fab river.
If you want to get the most out of a visit to Cambridge, a guided walking tour with an experienced Green Badge Cambridge guide is the best way to do it. We are fully qualified registered Cambridge tourist guides and have public liability insurance. We have undertaken extensive training and passed exams accredited by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. Every five years we are re-examined to ensure there has been no drop in standards.
We offer fun and family-friendly tours ranging from one to two hours. The exact time and tour content can be adjusted to suit your needs and interests.
Cambridge is home to one of the world's top universities and has a superb collection of buildings, ranging from the 11th century to the modern day. A two hour tour allows enough time to visit one, or even two, of the historic colleges, such as King's, Queens', Pembroke or St. John's. You would also see, and learn about, a good spread of the many of the other places of interest, such as the Old Cavendish Laboratory (where JJ Thompson discovered the electron and Crick and Watson determined the structure of DNA) and the historic Eagle pub with its much-visited bar dedicated to the RAF and US 8th Air Force.
The 31 Cambridge colleges offer a range of architectural styles spanning 700 hundred years. The 11th century tower of St Bene't's church is the oldest building in the county. And the 12th century Round Church is a fine example of Norman architecture.

We also offer a range of themed tours. These include the ever-popular ghost tour. In a city crammed with ancient buildings, it is not surprising that ghost stories abound. Walk the dark Cambridge streets and hear some spooky tales.
Our science tour will explain how Cambridge became the scientific powerhouse it is today, with 90 Nobel prize winners and counting. And if you like to learn about the more infamous side of Cambridge life, try our 'Spies, Scallywags and Scoundrels' tour.
When planning your visit to Cambridge you might want to coincide with one of the many cultural events that crowd the local calendar. Details of some are shown on our 'What's On' page.
