Explore the university city of Cambridge and see the famous Senate House, once used for gatherings of the Council of the Senate and now a traditional venue for degree ceremonies. With its neoclassical architecture and rich history, you’ll get to learn more about its place in Cambridge culture.
You’ll also see the beautiful Corpus Clock which stands outside the Taylor Library at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge University. Hailed as one of the most innovative inventions of its time, this clock is a real sight to behold.
Another treat on your adventure is the Mathematical Bridge. Located southwest of Cambridge and on the River Cam, its design is truly one-of-a-kind. Built in 1749 and designed by William Etheridge, it is built using only straight timbers although with a curvature design — it’s not to be missed!
King’s College Chapel
See the world-famous King’s College Chapel — one of Cambridge’s main attractions. Dating back to 1446 when Henry VI began its build, the building offers a wonderful look at gothic architecture both inside and out. With exquisite medieval stained-glass windows and breathtaking acoustics, this extra-special stop gives you the perfect opportunity to learn more about King’s College and its talented College Choir.
Walking Tour of Oxford
Home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world, countless bright young things have wandered Oxford’s cobbled streets over the years! During this guided walking tour, you’ll see the stunning Bodleian Library and furtively discover unspoilt narrow alleyways, ancient squares, towering spires and more.
