Ideal for first-time visitors: see all the iconic sights in just 90 minutes. 

Take an introductory tour around the highlights of the city as you walk the historic streets, past magnificent university buildings.

This is the perfect tour for first-time visitors to Cambridge or those who are only here for a short time. See all the central, iconic sights in just 90 minutes: the Old Cavendish Laboratory where important scientific discoveries were made, the Corpus Clock, the Senate House and many of the beautiful central colleges* including Corpus Christi, King’s, Gonville & Caius and Trinity.

Hear about famous students and world-changing discoveries, as well as student life, past and present.

Designed as an introduction to Cambridge, this tour is good value.  It’s led, as are all our tours, by our highly trained and entertaining Blue Badge Guides, who are ready to answer your questions and suggest other places to see and visit.

*External visits apart from Pembroke College, when available.

“Great trip, really interesting details and information, with a guide that both personalised it and went the extra mile.....I would highly recommend this tour – it has fired me up to return to Cambridge, can't wait to discover more. Thank you!”

Tours leave the Visitor Information Centre at 1pm every day of the week.
