Tour of Historic Cambridge

Discover the rich history of Cambridge on our informative walking tour. Led by a knowledgeable guide, you'll explore the city's iconic landmarks and hidden gems, from the Corpus Clock, to Watson & Crick; from strange traditions around St Mary's Church to the mysteries of how students got a car on top of Senate House!

Gala Dinner

College Bar

Run by the lovely Wendy, the college bar serves a wide range of soft and alcoholic beverages. If that isn't enough for you, you can always ask our team about the Cambridge nightlife!
