    What to Expect
    Choose an 11am or 2pm walking tour, then meet your guide in central Cambridge. Widely considered among England’s prettiest cities, Cambridge has a history of academic excellence dating back centuries.
    During your 2-hour walking tour, follow your guide through the streets and colleges of Cambridge and learn how the university has shaped the city we see today. Along the way, learn of famous names such as A. A. Milne, Charles Darwin, and Stephen Hawking,who lived and studied here.
    Visit 16th-century St. John’s College — the alma mater of figures such as William Wilberforce and the poet William Wordsworth — with your guide, and admire the impressive architecture you find. As you explore, learn of the many Nobel Prize-winners and British Prime Ministers the college has produced over the years.
    After two hours, return to your starting point in central Cambridge to conclude your walking tour.

    It has the meeting point on its website. It’s outside a Fudge shop in Trinity street. It’s a perfect spot to then go off after the tour and explore on your own or walk up to take a punt along the river. Very recommended!
