Hidden Cambridge

The Cambridge Colleges: A Walking Tour

Wed 15 November 2023 - Fri 1 December 2023

Great St Mary's Church

This walking tour from “Hidden Cambridge”, and led by a Cambridge Green Badge Guide, will take an in-depth look at unusual aspects of several of the city centre colleges and, depending on public access on that day, will include a visit to one in order to really discover just what goes on!

One college, with unusually strong links to a particular county, had one master who came up with a rather unique way to mark a student’s journey, but what was it? And the same master introduced a statute that could have excluded one of the college’s most famous professors of all time!

There’s something for everyone: tales of Royalty (past and present), comedians, war heroes, poets, architects, entrepreneurs etc. etc.

This is suitable for all ages, is wheelchair friendly, and will be at a leisurely pace.

Tours will be limited to a maximum of 12 people.
