WALKING TOURS OF CAMBRIDGE
Cambridge is one of Britain's most historic, vibrant and picturesque cities. It is home to one of the world's leading universities and has one of the finest collections of buildings in Britain. The 31 Cambridge colleges alone 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.
If you want to get the most out of a visit to Cambridge, a guided walking tour with a registered Cambridge guide is a good way to do it.
A one hour taster tour would help you to get the feel of Cambridge and see many of its most famous buildings. These include the world-famous King's College Chapel, Queens' College, Trinity College, St John's college, St Bene't's Saxon church, the historic Eagle pub and the Old Cavendish Laboratory (where JJ Thompson discovered the neutron and Crick and Watson determined the structure of DNA).
A two hour tour would allow time to enter two of the historic colleges, such as King's, Queens', Trinity, Pembroke or St. John's, plus see many of the other main places of interest.
In addition to our fun and informative historical tours, 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.
Cambridge is not short of good pubs, some of them dating back to mediaeval times. Join one of our guides on a walking tour of historic pubs and see something of the city at the same time.
Our science tour will explain how Cambridge became the scientific powerhouse it is today, with 89 Nobel prize winners and counting.
When planning your visit to Cambridge you might want to coincide with one of the many cultural event that crowd the local calendar. Details of some are shown on our 'What's On' page. For example, the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival which is now in its 28th year and presents the bard's great plays in college gardens.
Our guides are all fully qualified registered Cambridge tourist guides and have public liability insurance. They have each undertaken in-depth training and have passed a series of practical and written exams. Registered Cambridge guides also participate in a programme of continued professional development organised by the Society of Cambridge Tourist Guides. Every five years we are re-examined to ensure there has been no drop in standards.
