WALKING TOURS OF CAMBRIDGE
Cambridge is a vibrant and picturesque city, with the feel of a market town. It is home to one of the world's top universities and has a fine collection of buildings, ranging from the 11th century to the modern day. 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.
We offer tours ranging from one to two hours. The exact time can be adjusted to suit your needs and interests.
A two hour tour allows enough time to visit one, or even two, of the historic colleges, such as King's, Queens', Trinity, Pembroke or St. John's. You would also see, and hear about, a good spread of the many of the other places of interest, such as the Old Cavendish Laboratory (where JJ Thompson discovered the neutron 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.
In a one hour taster tour you would see many of the city's most famous buildings and get a feel for what Cambridge has to offer.

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 has lots 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 events 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 undertaken extensive training and passed exams accredited by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. Every five years they are re-examined to ensure there has been no drop in standards.
