Cambridge Talking Point Tour

Cambridge Talking Point Tour

Cambridge lends itself so well to our Talking Point Tour. The city didn’t become the wonder it is today overnight. The city developed through an abstract manner with some Roman ingenuity, a bit of Viking savagery, a moment of cowardice from the other place (Oxford), some dodgy dealings with the Tudors and a bit of academic brilliance from some of the world's greatest minds. Pink Floyd and Stephen Fry to name a couple. The rich history of Cambridge has so much to offer, starting off at the famous Launders Green, we will take you through the formation of the University, a must so we have been told. Past locations that have changed the way we view the very fabric of the universe, to locations that will challenge your perspectives on famous names and events. Before finishing up on Quayeside, where you can pick up a punt or enjoy a refreshment after the tour.
