Tours around Cambridge

The information presented on the Cambridge pages is based on the Cambridge City Centre Street Map and Guide


Official Guided Walking Tours of Cambridge are available daily, and are highly recommended as an introduction to the wonders of the city. Tours leave from the Tourist Information Centre in Wheeler Street and last about two hours. Places on each tour are limited _ book half an hour in advance to avoid disappointment. Special `Drama Tours' are available on some summer evenings. History is brought to life by the appearance of costumed characters like Henry VIII and Isaac Newton who played a part in the city's past. Tours are led by qualified Blue Badge Guides, and any group wishing to visit the colleges must be accompanied by one of these Guides. For more details, prices, and to book tickets contact the Tourist Information Centre Tel: 322640; group bookings Tel: 457574.

AUDIO-GUIDED WALKING TOURS. Visit Cambridge and Tourist Tracks have developed two 60-minute walks of the city, both of which start and finish from the Market Square. The tour pack, containing both tours in MP3 format and a PDF map, costs just £5 to download, or you can hire pre-loaded MP3 players from the Tourist Information Centre in Wheeler Street.


The Cambridge Tour (on green and cream buses) lasts about an hour and you are accompanied by a Guide Friday professional guide. The tour buses pass many of the 31 colleges, give picturesque views of the 'Backs' along the River Cam, and visit the American Military Cemetery at Madingley, three miles from the centre of Cambridge. The tours leave at frequent intervals from Cambridge Railway Station and the other stops along the route, (marked on the map). Details and tickets are available from The Guide Friday Tourism Centre (E6), the Tourist Information Centre (B3), or on the bus. Tel: 362444 for more details.


Cambridge River Tours is a small independent punting operation established in 2005 by two experienced punt chauffeurs with many years experience working on the river Cam. Experienced chauffeurs provide a high quality, bespoke and above all personal service.
For many a visit to Cambridge is a once in a lifetime experience and would not be complete without a traditional punt trip along the famous college backs. Make sure your trip is memorable for the right reasons.
They can accommodate any size of group, from a couple on a romantic break, to a corporate party, hen party or a group of friends who want to see the sights Cambridge has to offer. Although we specialise in tours on the traditional five seater punts, we can also arrange trips on the larger twelve seaters if required.
