A fascinating insight into the history, traditions and student life of the University colleges spanning 800 years. Visit the highlight of the tour, King's College Chapel with its Gothic pinnacles, celebrated Choir and Christmas Eve carol service. Admire the front of Trinity College, founded in 1546 by Henry VIII, famous for marrying six wives. Enjoy stories of student pranks and watch the flat-bottomed boats called punts as they travel along the River Cam propelled by boatmen with long poles.
Learn about life-changing discoveries in Cambridge, such as the structure of DNA at the Cavendish Laboratory. Pause at the Eagle pub to hear stories of the World War 2 British and American pilots' nights of revelry! Marvel at the unique modern Corpus clock with its amazing grasshopper.
