Science walking tours 2021

Wed 31 March - Sun 28 November

From in front of The Round Church

See the building where the secret of life on earth and the secret of destroying the planet were discovered. Why did the Botanical Garden lead Darwin aboard the Beagle? How did Jocelyn Bell Burnell spend her million pound lifetime achievement award? Which woman pioneered computer programming, and why is a phycisist remembered with a crocodile? Cambridge has so many scientists to celebrate, and lots of quirky stories to enjoy.
The tour starts outside the Round Church.
