Official Guided Tours: The Riverside College Tour

Take an exclusive guided tour of Cambridge’s riverside colleges to uncover their hidden gems and secrets - including the Bridge of Sighs, Pepys Library and more.

Learn about the history of two of Cambridge’s beautiful riverside colleges: the 500-year-old Magdalene College, with its historical candlelit dining room, and St John’s College, with its stunning Bridge of Sighs - also the setting for the hit movie ‘The Theory of Everything'. 

Wander around the ancient buildings, courtyards and beautiful gardens, as you learn about famous alumni including Magdalene’s 17th century chronicler Samuel Pepys. His papers and diary were donated to the college upon his death and are housed in the Pepys Library.

This two-hour tour is a great introduction to how the historic colleges were founded many centuries ago, and to how the university works today.

Admission to the colleges is included in the price.
