The city of Cambridge is centred around the ancient university which is over 800 years old. The city boasts an unparalleled blend of history, culture and architectural beauty. By taking our 90 minute tour with one of our experienced guides you will be able to cover the highlights of the city. It is possible to spend a lifetime exploring Cambridge and still not find everything it has to offer. (We also offer half day and full day guided tours for smaller groups.)

Because Cambridge University is one of the leading academic institutions in the world, naturally there are numerous sites which are dedicated to certain fields of study. One site which is well worth visitors’ attention, and is often overlooked, is Cambridge University Museum of Zoology. The building, which is located at the 'New Museum site', has some spectacular specimens on display, which are also used for academic research and for student lectures. The museum hosts various family friendly events which can enhance your experience of Cambridge.

The main entrance is marked by an impressive whale skeleton hanging outside. See the map below with the location pinpointed.
