Take Cambridge’s history in your stride on this walking tour

Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

Navigate your way through Cambridge’s cobbled streets and its 1,000-year history, with one of the city’s expert guides.

Cambridge has 1,000 years of history under its belt so getting a guide to help you navigate it all is a very sensible option. While walking around the cobbled streets and looking up at the city’s elegant college spires, you’ll discover how Newton and Darwin honed their analytical skills, where the first British Prime Minister, Robert Walpole (and 14 others after him) learnt the joy of debate, and where a young Lord Byron first became raucous.

Don’t think your guide will bog you down in just history, though; they’ll also make sure you enjoy the Cambridge of today, with an amble around its famous market and a peek inside the colleges at the students who still study here today.
