Cambridge was named after its 7th century Anglo-Saxon bridge over the river Cam. In 1209 the University of Cambridge was founded, and by 1446 Henry the VI had begun construction of Kings College Chapel. Robert Walpole matriculated from the university in 1696 and went on to be the very first Prime minster of Britain.

Today our guides will show youwithin a few square kilometres, architecture from every period and style in early-modern history, the locations of countless scientific break-throughs, and the college rooms that housed some 85 noble prize winners, 100 Olympic medallists, and 14 British Prime ministers.

Once we have pointed you in the right direction you will see reminders of secretive clubs, hauntings, and mysterious traditions. As the tour goes on, you could see the pub where Watson and Crick announced the discovery of DNA, the hangman’s house, or even the college rooms of Stephen Fry.

Our student guides have an unparalleled insider’s perspective and knowledge of the city and its university which they use to bring Cambridge to life!
