About The Tour
10 hours - Cambridge University City & Ely Cathedral
A mere 50 minute train journey brings you to Cambridge, arguably one of the best universities in the world and a fabulous day trip. Your guide was both an undergraduate and graduate student. A short taxi ride will bring you to the flat and pedestrian friendly city centre. Discover the history and beauty of the 700 year old institution and be guided to see many of the famous colleges such as King’s, Trinity, Queen’s, Jesus etc - with anecdotal stories of student life as you go. Learn also of cutting edge modern research. For refreshments there are locations near the beautiful River Cam, or perhaps you would like to go punting and take photos from a flat bottomed boat as generations of students have done. There is much to fill a whole day in Cambridge. Alternatively, you might wish to split your time and include another 15 minute train ride to embrace the beautiful Cathedral city of Ely with its rich history and architecture, plus pretty riverside walks and restaurants.
One or both destinations can be included in the day at your choice.
