The Basics

Stop by Trinity College independently and explore the architectural and historical highlights at your own pace with a self-guided audio tour. Alternatively, take an in-person tour—these typically include visits to other Cambridge colleges such as King’s and Pembroke—to gain a deeper understanding of the Trinity College history. First-time visitors may even prefer to combine an introductory city tour with a stop at Trinity College or opt for a full-day excursion to both Cambridge University and Oxford University.

A great walking tour of Cambridge and its world class university.
Very informative and interesting tour, led by an excellent guide. It was particularly interesting because the guide had recently graduated from a Cambridge college and knew a great deal about the university structure, its colleges and many of its alumni throughout the centuries. An energetic walk on a very hot day. The tour gets full marks from us.

Sonja was an excellent guide: personable, knowledgeable and fun. Her love of Cambridge and the university was infectious. I would highly recommend this tour, but the guide makes all the difference. We had a much different experience on the Oxford tour.

My wife and I had a great time touring the campus with Naomi. She was knowledgeable, funny, and easy to talk to. We didn't know there were so many ghost stories at Cambridge!
