The Basics

Stop by Trinity College independently and explore the architectural and historical highlights at your own pace with a self-guided audio tour. Alternatively, take an in-person tour—these typically include visits to other Cambridge colleges such as King’s and Pembroke—to gain a deeper understanding of the Trinity College history. First-time visitors may even prefer to combine an introductory city tour with a stop at Trinity College or opt for a full-day excursion to both Cambridge University and Oxford University.

Cambridge - facts and anecdotes
Excellent tour full of historical and other anecdotes around the main colleges in Cambridge. Saw the inside of Pembroke College and the chapel, and saw the classic view of Kings College and chapel over the meadow. Great taster session, and excellent to hear how life is as a student at Cambridge. Thanks Ben.

We had a tour guide Claire who was absolutely amazing. The whole tour from start to finish was interesting. The walk around was beautiful. I would recommend everyone visiting Cambridge to book this tour. I feel it’s important to have a tour guide from a student- past or present. Jo and Paul

We were very fortunate to have Becky as our tour guide. She is a graduate of Cambridge University and is currently studying there for a post-graduate qualification. She had excellent knowledge of the numerous Colleges that are part of the university and gave us an informative and entertaining 90 minute walking tour. Highly recommended.

Punts are usually available from the mid-morning to the late afternoon between Easter and mid-October. Alternatively, chauffeured punting excursions are available.
