The Colleges of Cambridge

Cambridgeshire
£38.00 per person based on 35 paying persons

Cambridge is famous worldwide for its association with the colleges that lie within its boundaries. Without those colleges the city would not be the remarkable place it is today. However, there is more to explore here; for example some fantastic architecture, little cobbled courtyards and interesting shops and boutiques.

Sightseeing in Cambridge

Meet your knowledgeable local guide on your journey into this wonderful city. Cambridge is most widely known as the home of the University of Cambridge, which was founded in 1209 and is consistently ranked one of the top five universities in the world. The University and its thirty one colleges dominate the centre with beautiful cobbled courts, chapels, gardens and bridges. However, Cambridge also has a modern, dynamic pulse. You may wish to take a look at Christ’s College, where a young Charles Darwin studied, or King’s College, where the Chapel is the grandest and most beautiful building in the city and ranks amongst the most important examples of perpendicular (late gothic) architecture.

Lunch

Enjoy a two-course lunch followed by tea and coffee.

Tales Tour: Colleges and Countryside

After lunch enjoy a panoramic coach tour of Cambridge, including a visit to some of the outlying areas such as the West Cambridge Site, the ultra modern University development which is home to much cutting edge research, including the European HQ of Microsoft Research. Your tour will include a stop at the American Cemetery in Madingley, where nearly 4,000 American service personnel are buried. The Wall of the Missing has over 5,000 names inscribed on it, including Joseph Kennedy and band leader Glenn Miller.

Coton Orchard Garden Centre
