Summary
Take a tour of Cambridge's historic centre and key colleges along with a few local gems
Description
On this self-guided walking tour, we’ll explore Cambridge's historic center, including the heart of the University of Cambridge, along with less obvious gems. I’ve mixed my experience as a local in too, as well as stories of my time as a student at the University of Cambridge, and I hope I’ve brought across the real personality of this famous city.

Cambridge is the second oldest university in England and it showcases almost a millennium of architectural highlights. There’s everything from the Round Church, which dates back to 1130, to the Wren Library, completed in 1695, and the Corpus Clock, which was installed in 2008. Its quaint cobblestone streets and winding alleyways provide plenty of photo opportunities too, especially if you can go at your own pace. This guided audio tour allows you to do exactly that, while still seeing all of the city’s highlights.

It’s a two kilometre walk and it starts and finishes on King’s Parade. Cambridge is flat, but because of the cobblestones, it worth wearing sensible shoes.

Address: 9 King's Parade, King's Parade, Cambridgeshire, England, CB2 1SJ
Notes: This tour begins outside the gates of King's College, on King's Parade. Cambridge is well connected by train, and fast trains from London Kings Cross take under an hour. From the train station you can take buses 1 or 7 into the center of town. It is then a five minute walk to King's. Alternatively take a taxi from the station. Anyone in Cambridge will be able to give you directions to King's College, but be sure to ask for directions to King's and not for 'The University'. The University is made up of hundreds of buildings spread over the city and you may get pointed towards an uninspiring outpost.
