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.
