See the rooms where Newton wrote his theory of gravity and hear the truth behind the apple tree myth. Visit the pub where Watson and Crick announced one of the greatest discoveries of the twentieth century. Marvel at some of the greatest examples of Gothic and Neoclassical architecture in the world. Inspiring, baffling, and downright outrageous: Cambridge is a city full of stories waiting to be told.
THE STUDENT’S STORY
Cambridge is nothing without its students, and it’s the students who make our walking tours so special. Combining a deep passion for the city’s history and architecture with the knowledge and experience of an insider, all our tour guides are either graduates or current students of the University of Cambridge. You hear all about what the students really get up to – from “college parents” to lavish May Balls and the dreaded all-nighters in-between. Which college is the poshest one, and which is the richest? Which one has a communist flag in its bar? As well as hearing it all from the horse’s mouth, you get to see inside up to two colleges, with highlights including the beautiful Pembroke College Chapel and gardens. This is the real Cambridge as experienced from within the college walls.
