Official Guided Tours: City Highlights and the Fitzwilliam Museum

Explore the heart of Cambridge as well as one of Europe’s best regional museums on our 2-hour special tour, available exclusively during this Christmas break.

Take a stroll around the historic town centre with our highly trained, friendly, local guide. Learn about the origins of the University of Cambridge, the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and see iconic Cambridge landmarks - including King’s College Chapel, Senate House, Great St Mary’s (the University church), Corpus Clock, original Cavendish Laboratory and historic university colleges*.
