At Footprints, we’re experts at constructing and delivering tours that show you the very best of Cambridge. Our 2-hour Free Cambridge Walking Tour is a consistent hit with travellers of all stripes.
However, for a truly comprehensive experience that takes you right into the heart of the ancient and venerable University of Cambridge, it’s hard to beat our Cambridge University Walking Tour. Our knowledgeable local guides will tell you all about the University – both about its, and about how this astounding institution really works today. We’ll include the colourful personalities, strange stories and weird and wonderful details that make Cambridge such a fascinating, quirky place.
Nonetheless, the highlight of the outing will undoubtedly be your visit to Saint John’s College, an enchanting 16th-century environment which is the alma mater of figures such as William Wilberforce and the poet William Wordsworth. Saint John’s has produced seven Prime Ministers and no fewer than ten Nobel Prize winners. The College shot to even greater heights of fame recently when it was served as one of the primary filming locations for The Theory of Everything, the hit biopic of Professor Stephen Hawking.
Our guides are fun, engaging local professionals who will make the city’s history truly accessible for visitors of all ages. We’re not here to throw a list of dates and facts at you. Our guides know their stuff, but they also know how to explain it without putting you to sleep!
