Pass By: King's College, King's Parade, Cambridge CB2 1ST England

There are over 28 colleges that help make up the University of Cambridge. Many of the colleges are open to the public but perhaps the most interesting college to visit is Kings College. Kings College was founded in 1441 by King Henry VI shortly after completing Eton College near Windsor. The college, one of the largest in Cambridge, is dominated by its late gothic chapel, celebrated for its large fan vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows.


Pass By: Trumpington Street Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge CB2 1RB England

This is the university museum and was founded in 1816 by Viscount Fitzwilliam. He left his private collection to the university and also provided the funds to construct the building. Over the years the museum has been extended and is well known for its Egyptian galleries and it works of art by Rubens, Constable, Degas, Renoir, Raphael and Gainsborough amongst many others.

Jun 2016

This tour was amazing!

Aug 2017

It was excellent but too much walking, probably approximately 5kms from train station to the university and back. We expected to be bused into the university for the walking tour to commence. Wish we had been informed earlier.

Mar 2017

It was a really good small group trip. The only thing I would have wanted is more time to walk around the beautiful cambridge.

Jul 2018

We wandered the station looking for 9 3/4 platform. No one could give us directions. We asked information, security staff, etc. Even the stores at 9 3/4 Harry Potter said they didn't know anything about it. Time was up, so we bought our own tickets to Cambridge, paid for a Hop-on-Hop Off with Punting and had a great time without the Evan Evans tour.

Aug 2017

This tour should be half day. I and the other 4 fellows had way too much idle time with nothing to do. You can also do it yourself to save time and money because the tour does not add any value.
