Colleges and University Buildings
The University of Cambridge comprises 31 Colleges and over 150 departments, museums and other institutions. You can see examples of beautiful architecture, learn about the University and city history, visit museums and attend musical events when you visit Cambridge. A good way to see many of the central Colleges is to take a punt tour along the river Cam. Or book an official guided walking tour of Cambridge using this Visit Cambridge website and see several Colleges during your visit.
Each College has a different policy on admitting members of the public, and it is best to check individual College entries on the Visit Cambridge website or College websites before you visit. King's College Chapel is a popular attraction for many visitors and visiting information is here: http://www.kings.cam.ac.uk/visit/admission.html
The University's outstanding museums and collections open to the public include the Fitzwilliam Museum, Botanic Garden, Kettle's Yard, Polar Museum and Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Many of these museums are free of charge to visit. More information can be found on the Visit Cambridge Museums and Galleries page, and here: http://www.cam.ac.uk/museums/
