Queens' College in Late Summer

Tour Pembroke College, and either Queen’s College or Corpus Christi.

Explore the rich and fascinating medieval history of two of Cambridge’s oldest colleges.

Led by an experienced Blue Badge Guide, this 90-minute tour allows visitors greater insight into the university's history, its architecture and student life.

It includes entrance to two of Cambridge’s oldest foundations: Pembroke College, founded in 1624 and home to Sir Christopher Wren's first completed building - the chapel, and, depending on the time of year, either Queen's College or Corpus Christi. 

Your guide will explain the collegiate system of tutorials, unique to Cambridge. Hear about what student life is like today, as well as what it was like centuries ago when the colleges were first founded.

Discover the famous alumni who studied and taught at the colleges as you wander around the halls, chapels, cloisters, courtyards and beautiful gardens. 

“Our tour guide, Steve, was fantastic. We are a family with two children, and we all enjoyed the tour today. We would highly recommend anyone, including adults and children, to join this tour!”
