4 day tour
From £249 per person - minimum 20 passengers

With 31 university colleges and some of England’s grandest architecture, it’s no wonder Cambridge remains such a popular destination. We embark upon a walking tour of the city and take in the sights including King’s College, the Corpus Clock, and The Eagle which is synonymous with Watson’s and Crick’s discovery of DNA. We also discover a world of horse racing and breeding at the National Stud in Newmarket, and spend time in the historic town of Ely.

This morning we travel to Newmarket, regarded by many as the ‘Capital of Horseracing’. Our first stop is at the National Stud for a behind the scenes look at a working thoroughbred stud farm. Groups may also wish to visit new attraction ‘Palace House’ The national horse racing museum*. There’s free time in the town itself for shopping and lunch before we drive the short distance to Ely. Full of charm and beauty the town’s main attraction is Ely Cathedral, undoubtedly one of the most magnificent cathedrals in England.
