Overview

Join a local historian and PhD student as we discover the story behind the birth of one of the world’s most famous universities, and what it’s like to be a student at Cambridge University! Take a city break from London and learn about 110 Nobel Prize winners that have walked the halls of this university.

On this private socially-distanced guide, we'll visit the most iconic spots of the city such as Trinity College, King’s College, and Great St Mary's Church. Walkthrough the architectural highlights and follow the footsteps of the famous alumni Prince Charles, Sir Isaac Newton, C.S. Lewis, John Harvard, and Stephen Hawking.

Loved this experience! Perfect for current times where you can completely avoid the crowds and other people and explore Cambridge in your own time. I always hate doing big group tours and this was such a perfect way to get an overview of Cambridge while exploring by yourself
