Come off the beaten track and discover the history that few tourists get to see

Go back 2,000 years.  Hear how Cambridge was invaded by Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans - and the most fundamental invasion of all  - The University!

Uncover the history of the secret alleyways, unvisited corners and ancient churchyards. Hear how the old streets acquired rich Colleges, and Professors and Punts replaced Publicans and Prostitutes.

The tour takes place the first Sunday of every month, lasts for one /one and a half hours and costs £8, to include the £4 entrance fee to the Cambridge Museum which receives all proceeds from the tours. Children under 12 are free.

The tour begins outside the entrance to St Johns College and ends at the Museum where the Guide will introduce you to some of the highlights of this atmospheric former coaching Inn - THE MUSEUM OF CAMBRIDGE The tours are led by a professional Guide who is passionate about the local museum and loves their City.
